Queen Mary's President and Principal, Professor Colin Bailey, and Professor Dato’ Dr. Faisal Rafiq Mahamd Adikan, Vice Chancellor of USM, recently signed a Strategic Partnership Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to significantly deepen and extend this international partnership

By doing so, Queen Mary can share its world-leading expertise globally, consolidating its commitment to excellence in teaching, research, and innovation.

University Sains Malaysia, Penang, is among the oldest institutions of higher education in Malaysia, with the university's main campus hosting over 28,000 students. USM and Queen Mary will collaborate in a number of areas over the next five years, building on the MoU signed in 2018. The new Strategic Partnership will focus on:

  • Education: the development of dual degree programmes at the undergraduate level across a range of subjects including Business Management, Engineering and English.
  • Research: the commitment to research partnership, enabling researcher mobility and collaboration as well as supporting joint funding applications for national and international research projects across our disciplines.
  • Mobility: the development of opportunities for faculty, staff and students both in Malaysia and Queen Mary sites as well as immersion and summer programmes.
  • Policy and social impact: including executive education and post graduate training programmes on topics such as cyber security, cyber law and diplomacy.
