Since the launch of the Semenyih campus, UNMC has continued to enrich lives and communities, where our students transform into outstanding alumni and contributing members of the global society, season after season. In conjunction with UNMC celebrating its 15-year mark (#UNMC15), we would like to take you on a quick walk down memory lane. The following photographs were salvaged and preserved, thanks to the diligent Miss Khan Quay Kin (IS Department), who is also one of the university’s longest-serving staff.
As the first British University to have a full-fledged overseas campus, UNMC has come a long way since then, and we know that the best is yet to come.
