New campus to further ambitions of University international partner

Peninsula College, Malaysia, has opened its Ship Campus in Batu Kawan Industrial Park in Penang. The campus will exclusively deliver University of Plymouth degrees across a range of subjects at undergraduate and postgraduate level, including logistics management, business management, accountancy and tourism. Further developments in computing and engineering are planned for the near future.
The campus and its state of the art facilities were opened by Tun Dato' Seri Utama Ahmad Fuzi bin Abdul Razak, Governor of the State of Penang, in the presence of Deputy Chief Minister of Penang, Professor Dr P. Ramasamy. The University was represented by Professor Dafydd Moore, Senior Deputy Vice-Chancellor. 
Peninsula College prides itself as the go-to institution for logistics management, accountancy and business studies in Malaysia, and now has three campuses across the country, with the Ship as its new headquarters.
Peninsula College closely associates its campuses with the facilities of its parent company PKT Logistics and uses its location to operate a distinctive ‘campus in industry’ model, enabling students to enjoy close collaboration and part-time employment with PKT and other industry partners while studying.
As part of the opening ceremony, Professor Moore presented a scholarship award worth 1 million ringgit (£186,000) over 5 years, which, along with similar funding from Peninsula College, will enable talented Peninsula students to come to Plymouth for a year of their studies and get a taste of studying in the UK. 
Peninsula College is one of Plymouth’s numerous international academic partners that extend and enhance opportunities for students and organisations globally.
Professor Moore said: 
“As a University that prides itself on making a global as well as a local impact, it was a privilege to represent Plymouth at the opening of the new Ship Campus at Peninsula College. 
“The campus itself is very impressive – not just in its design to accommodate 4,000 students, but in its model to offer students valuable industry experience right on their doorstep. It’s fantastic to see an institution prioritise students’ employability alongside their academic development, and I look forward to sharing in the College’s success.”
