The Malaysian Society of Northumbria University (NUMS) is a place where Malaysians can still feel a part of home all the way here in Newcastle. We aim to provide fellow Malaysians and even non - Malaysians a taste of Malaysia.
We have events every month where we gather together and meet each other. Whether it's through sports or social events!
We are proud to say we have successfully held many events in the past, like Nusantara Games in 2018, over 200 participants from all over the UK attended. The event was officiated by the Lord Mayor Linda Wright and Councillor David Faulkner of Newcastle Upon-Tyne.
Besides that, every year we collaborate with the Malaysian Society of Newcastle University (MalSoc), Malaysian Night. We will also have small events from time to time like chinese new year celebration, pot luck event, lepak lepak sihat.
Join us, and you will experience the best here in Newcastle.
