Newcastle University Malaysia

Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia 

A fine choice for students looking for undergraduate programmes in Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, and the option to study in class or take online classes — yes, you read that correctly. The Newcastle University of Medicine Malaysia offers students the flexibility to learn from wherever they are. On top of that, students also get to enjoy having the accreditation its UK campus offers in Malaysia. This is also the first campus of the university that’s outside of the UK but the quality of service is consistent regardless of the continent it’s in. In addition to providing the best learning experience for students, the university also prioritises the student’s mental health by providing support through counselling and services that can assist in problems students may find trouble overcoming on their own.

Academy of eSports

One of the most unorthodox careers to build is one in eSports, but as uncommon as it is to venture into it professionally, the payoff is unbelievably valuable.
