No Offers Through UCAS? Get A UK Degree In Malaysia
by StudyMalaysia.com on August 18, 2015 | Top Stories
If you've sat for the A-levels and plan to get a UK degree but didn't get an offer through UCAS because…
- you applied too late
- didn't receive any offers (or none you wanted to accept)
- didn't meet the conditions of your offers
… then here's what you can do:
- use the UCAS Clearing service to see which courses have places remaining and choose a new course (valid from July-September)
- take a gap year and apply again next year
- get a UK degree in Malaysia by enrolling at a UK foreign university branch campus
If you're interested in the third option, then here's a list of universities you can explore.
- University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus
- University of Southampton Malaysia Campus
- University of Reading Malaysia
- Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia
- Heriot-Watt University Malaysia Campus
Advantages of studying for a UK degree in Malaysia:
- you spend less on day-to-day living costs
- you pay lower tuition fees
- you get to be with your family and Malaysian chums
- you won't have to freeze in winter
- you won't miss your local nasi lemak and char koay teow fix among others
- you won't have to deal with being homesick
- you'll still get to make new friends and meet international students
- you may have the chance of spending a semester (or more, depending on the course and university) in the UK so you won't miss out on the UK experience entirely
- and BEST of all, you get the same degree qualification as someone studying at the same college or university in the UK
