Xiamen University Malaysia (XMUM): the Pioneer of Chinese University Overseas Campus
Xiamen University Malaysia (XMUM) is the first overseas campus fully established by a renowned Chinese university with a campus of her own. The campus covers an area of 150 acres, with a planned total floor space of 470,000 m2 and a total investment of RM 1.3 billion.
XMUM welcomed its first batch of 201 students in February 2016. The expected student enrolment in 2016 is 1,300 to 1,400. Enrolment is expected to grow to 5,000 in 2022; and eventually, to reach the maximum capacity of 10,000 students. The majority of students will be from Malaysia and China as well as other ASEAN countries in line with XMUM’s vision of forming a multi-cultural campus. At least 30% of the teaching staff will be distinguished professors from XMU China, while the rest of the lecturers will be recruited from other countries, including Malaysia, with at least 80% of faculty possessing PhD degrees.
XMUM currently offers 12 bachelor degree programmes and 2 foundation programmes, with English as the medium of instruction. XMUM strives to nurture young talents with dignity and wisdom, helping them to become upright and steadfast members of society who will in turn contribute to the prosperity of the people and social progress of Malaysia, China and Southeast Asia. XMUM aspires to become a university with a distinct global outlook, featuring first-class teaching and research, and embracing cultural diversity.
