I Visit our Malaysian Campus to Help with Admissions28th August 2013
I have just returned from a week's visit to the University of Southampton's campus in Malaysia (USMC). The campus is part of EduCity@Iskandar Nusjaya, just a few minutes across the bridge from Singapore. I am the Senior Admissions Tutor for the EEE degree at USMC (and in the UK), and so this was a fantastic opportunity for me to find out more about the admissions process in Malaysia

During the visit, I helped with one of their Open Days, receiving many interested applicants to the campus for the day, to show them the fantastic opportunities and facilities that we have on offer at USMC. I also recorded footage for a dedicated USMC 'virtual visit day', to supplement the videos that I recorded last year about our UK campus.
In October 2013, we will be delivering our highly-rated Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) degree course in Malaysia: a four year 2+2 MEng EEE degree where students spend the first two years studying in Malaysia before transferring to Southampton, UK, for the final two years. The EEE programme at USMC is identical to that offered at the Southampton campus, including the duplication of the outstanding ECS undergraduate laboratory facilities in Malaysia.

One of the metrics that is increasingly used to turn this list of numbers into a meaningful statistic for an individual is the h-index.
Put simply, an academic's h-index means that h of their papers has been cited at least h times.
At the time of writing, my h-index is 10 - meaning t... [more]
