Newcastle goes Medical in Malaysia

Report here of signing of an agreement by the University of Newcastle with the Government of Malaysia to establish a medical programme in Johor:

The new international branch campus in Johor, Malaysia will be named Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed) and will deliver and award the University’s degrees in medicine and biomedical science.

Interesting that the affordability of medical education is described as a key issue in the development which is intended to open in 2011.
