Penang Medical College (PMC) was recently awarded the Foreign University Branch Campus status by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE). Malaysia’s newest Foreign University Branch Campus (FUBC) is now named the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) and University College Dublin (UCD) Malaysia Campus – or “RCSI & UCD Malaysia Campus” (RUMC) for short.
Degrees awarded by the National University of Ireland are globally recognised and programmes offered range from foundation, bachelors, to masters and doctoral levels.
“Ireland and Malaysia have an extensive history of links and collaboration in the field of education and this accolade, the first Irish foreign university branch campus in Malaysia, is further evidence of the growing relationship between Ireland and Malaysia. We hope to see many more students moving between Ireland and Malaysia as RUMC grows and develops,” said the Irish Ambassador to Malaysia, His Excellency Eamon Hickey, who has been instrumental in cementing Irish-Malaysian education links in the region.
The PMC campus is centrally located close to the heart of George Town and within a five-minute walk of Penang Hospital, where most of the clinical teaching takes place. Located at the Sepoy Lines grounds, a four-storey academic complex houses the modern facilities essential for training medical professionals.
Established over 20 years ago, Penang Medical College provided Malaysia’s first registrable medical degree from a Malaysian private higher education institution and is wholly-owned by Irish institutions, the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) and University College Dublin (UCD). It remains the first and only full Irish university in Malaysia and the region. The PMC Clinical Skills and Education Centre in Seberang Jaya was launched in 2015 and is located next to the Seberang Jaya Hospital.
“Congratulations to Penang Medical College for being upgraded to become the tenth FUBC in Malaysia. This indicates a strong global recognition of the Malaysian higher equation system and of Malaysia as an education hub. We hope RCSI-UCD Malaysia Campus will continue to contribute towards Malaysia’s higher education excellence and nation building”, said Datin Paduka Ir. Dr. Siti Hamisah Binti Tapsir, Director-General of the Ministry of Higher Education.
Nearly 1,700 medical doctors have now graduated from PMC with globally recognised medical degrees of the National University of Ireland (NUI) and practice in Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, Ireland, UK, Switzerland, Malta, Australia, New Zealand, USA and many other countries.
Once the Brexit process is completed in 2019, RUMC will be the only foreign branch campus in Malaysia linking the European Union with Malaysia.
An official launch ceremony will be held later this year to celebrate and mark this momentous achievement as the first of many RUMC milestones moving forward.
