Why should I study at a UK branch campus?

Students can study at a UK university, while staying in Malaysia, which is the best of both worlds. Students will essentially earn a UK degree, while having to cover the usual living costs in Malaysia, making it much more affordable to obtain a degree from a UK university. Students will also be taught the same syllabus and enjoy the resources a UK branch campus will receive from their main campus, including student exchange programme opportunities, allowing a student to study overseas for a fixed amount of time.
