The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

SUN­WAY Univer­sity and Lancaster Univer­sity have been in part­ner­ship since 2006. Lancaster Univer­sity val­i­dates a range of de­gree pro­grammes in the ar­eas of psy­chol­ogy, busi­ness and com­puter stud­ies at Sun­way Univer­sity.

With this part­ner­ship, stu­dents who com­plete their Sun­way Univer­sity hon­ours de­gree are awarded two scrolls – one from Sun­way Univer­sity and another from Lancaster Univer­sity.

The joint de­gree pro­grammes at Sun­way Univer­sity present stu­dents with the op­tion of pur­su­ing a more af­ford­able de­gree with its qual­ity as­sured by a top UK univer­sity, en­hanc­ing their em­ploy­ment prospects or pro­vid­ing a qual­i­fi­ca­tion that al­lows them to progress to post­grad­u­ate stud­ies na­tion­ally or in­ter­na­tion­ally.

Lancaster Univer­sity, founded in 1964, is one of Bri­tain’s best re­search and teach­ing uni­ver­si­ties. The univer­sity is ranked in the top 1% of uni­ver­si­ties in the world and con­sis­tently highly ranked in both in­ter­na­tional and UK Higher Ed­u­ca­tion league ta­bles.

Sun­way Univer­sity finds it im­por­tant to of­fer de­gree pro­grammes of the high­est in­ter­na­tional stan­dard. All stu­dents in the Lancaster Univer­sity val­i­dated pro­grammes are given in­tern­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties with com­pa­nies and firms.

Sun­way Univer­sity’s aca­demic de­gree pro­grammes val­i­dated by Lancaster Univer­sity are in Ac­tu­ar­ial Stud­ies, Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance, Busi­ness Man­age­ment, Busi­ness Stud­ies, Biology with Psy­chol­ogy, Med­i­cal Biotech­nol­ogy, Com­puter Sci­ence, In­for­ma­tion Sys­tems, In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy and Psy­chol­ogy.

Sun­way Univer­sity and Lancaster Univer­sity jointly of­fer the pres­ti­gious Chan­cel­lors Schol­ar­ship to out­stand­ing stu­dents for study in one of the joint hon­ours de­grees.

The award in­cludes full tu­ition fees and a paid two-week study visit in the fi­nal year to Lancaster Univer­sity in the United King­dom. It cov­ers re­turn air tick­ets, lo­cal travel ex­penses and ac­com­mo­da­tion. Other com­mu­nity and merit schol­ar­ships are also avail­able. There is also an op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents of Sun­way and Lancaster to ex­pe­ri­ence liv­ing in each other’s coun­try dur­ing sum­mer va­ca­tions.

Stu­dents can join the three-week Sun­wayLan­caster Sum­mer Pro­gramme, of­fered to all Sun­way stu­dents in the Lancaster-af­fil­i­ated de­gree pro­grammes and Lancaster Univer­sity stu­dents. This sum­mer pro­gramme pro­vides Malaysian and UK stu­dents a glimpse of each other’s world.

Sun­way Univer­sity

In 2010, Sun­way Univer­sity was awarded a rat­ing of “Ex­cel­lent” in the na­tional SE­TARA ’09 rat­ing sys­tem, plac­ing it in the lead­ing group of Malaysian pub­lic and pri­vate uni­ver­si­ties on par with the for­eign branch cam­puses and the best pub­lic and pri­vate uni­ver­si­ties in the coun­try, in terms of the qual­ity of teach­ing and learn­ing.

Sun­way Univer­sity was once again rated Tier 5 (Ex­cel­lent) in SE­TARA ’11.

This year, Sun­way Univer­sity is rated Tier 5 (Ex­cel­lent) in the Dis­ci­pline-Based Rat­ing Sys­tem (D-SE­TARA) in the Hos­pi­tal­ity and Tourism dis­ci­pline.

Sun­way’s de­gree pro­grammes in In­ter­na­tional Hos­pi­tal­ity Man­age­ment and Culi­nary Man­age­ment, to­gether with its diploma pro­grammes in Ho­tel Man­age­ment, Culi­nary Arts and Events Man­age­ment, are ac­cred­ited by famed global culi­nary or­gan­i­sa­tion Le Cor­don Bleu (LCB).

Sun­way Univer­sity’s part­ner­ship with LCB en­sures that the pro­grammes de­vel­oped ad­here to the high qual­ity and pres­tige of the renowned in­sti­tu­tion.

The Sun­way cam­pus oc­cu­pies 22 acres of prime land in the in­te­grated town­ship of Ban­dar Sun­way.

Sun­way Univer­sity is set to be­come an in­ter­na­tional hub for ed­u­ca­tion. It at­tracts a high num­ber of for­eign stu­dents from over 90 coun­tries, fos­ter­ing a vi­brant in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity on cam­pus. The mul­ti­cul­tural in­ter­ac­tion ben­e­fits stu­dents, cre­at­ing a plat­form for shar­ing, learn­ing and net­work­ing while nur­tur­ing an open and global mind­set.

Sun­way Univer­sity is set to wel­come more stu­dents and em­ploy­ees with the com­ple­tion of a new build­ing. The build­ing, equipped with cut­ting-edge aca­demic fa­cil­i­ties, will in­clude an acous­ti­cally treated au­di­to­rium – a great space for mu­sic, speeches and sem­i­nars, lec­ture halls and a FIFA-cer­ti­fied syn­thetic turfed foot­ball field.

This new build­ing is ex­pected to be com­pleted by the end of next year and can ac­com­mo­date 9,000 stu­dents.
