Canadian (CIMP/ICPU) 88% average based on 6 subjects, including mathematics and science subjects (consideration to be made based on relevant subjects)

College Placement Test (US Style Curriculum)

Minimum final GPA of 3.0 (out of 4) in High School Diploma with grade A in mathematics and grade B in physics and chemistry plus, a score of 1200 in SATr plus, 650, 650 in SAT Subject Tests and at least 4 (in AP Calculus) or 4, 4, 4 in Advanced Placement Tests. Students taking group B subjects may be made an offer across more than three subjects at Advanced Placement level.

SAT Subject Test must include physics. SAT Subject Tests in mathematics at level 1 or 2 are not acceptable instead students need AP calculus. AP Physics must be a combination of Physics C plus either Physics 1 or Physics 2

Advance Placement (AP) Applicants who are taking Advanced Placement Tests in addition to another recognised qualification (not US style curriculum), may be considered on a case-by-case basis without the SATr and SAT Subject Tests
Diploma - Other Institutions  Acceptance to the second year is on a case by case basis (and at the discretion of the School) but normally would require an overall GPA of 3.33 (out of 4) or 75% and above (consideration to be made based on relevant subjects), and previous studies must meet the prerequisite requirements to the programme
Foundation - Other Institutions  Acceptance is at the discretion of the School but normally would require an overall GPA of 3.33 (out of 4) or 75% and above (consideration to be made based on relevant subjects), and previous studies must meet the prerequisite requirements to the programme
The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus Foundation Successful completion of the Foundation in Engineering programme with no failed modules

We strongly encourage all interested students to apply. Our students come to us with a diverse range of qualifications and we also consider applicants' personal statement, references and interview performance (if you have one) when making a decision. The only way for us to fully determine eligibility is through the submission of a completed application.

Career Prospects

Electrical and electronic engineering continue to be buoyant industries. Many of our graduates pursue engineering careers in a range of industries, such as electrical and electronic design, manufacturing, power plants, devices and systems design and development, electrical and electronic equipment and systems design and fabrication, and transmission. Others enter the management and commerce sector, or software and IT. Some also choose to continue their studies with further education.

A degree from Nottingham has a high reputation within the electrical and electronic engineering industry, and industry and finance generally, opening up a world of opportunity and prospects. In recent years the majority of our graduates have quickly found career employment with over 97 per cent of our graduates starting work or registering for further study, within three months of graduation.

All fees are in RM (Ringgit Malaysia) currency unless stated otherwise.
