THE Aus­tralian Ma­tric­u­la­tion (AUSMAT) at Sun­way Col­lege is an in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised pre-univer­sity pro­gramme. It pre­pares stu­dents for the Western Aus­tralian Cer­tifi­cate of Ed­u­ca­tion (WACE) and is widely ac­cepted by uni­ver­si­ties in Aus­tralia, New Zealand, the United King­dom, the United States, Canada, Rus­sia, Ger­many and Sin­ga­pore, as well as also pri­vate uni­ver­si­ties and univer­sity col­leges in Malaysia.

The AUSMAT pro­gramme at Sun­way Col­lege of­fers a flex­i­ble com­bi­na­tion of di­verse sub­jects, in­clud­ing Bi­o­log­i­cal Sciences, Chem­istry, Physics, Psy­chol­ogy, Math­e­mat­ics, Eco­nom­ics, Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance and Busi­ness Man­age­ment.

It does not re­strict stu­dents to any spe­cial­i­sa­tion or sub­ject com­bi­na­tion. De­pend­ing on their per­sonal in­ter­ests, stu­dents can choose and com­bine a va­ri­ety of sub­jects, al­low­ing them to de­velop their best po­ten­tial.

Sun­way stu­dents have gained ad­mis­sion into uni­ver­si­ties in Aus­tralia, in­clud­ing the pres­ti­gious Group-of-Eight (Go8), uni­ver­si­ties in New Zealand and many other coun­tries around the world.

The broad learn­ing ped­a­go­gies pre­pare them well for univer­sity-level stud­ies and re­search, al­low­ing them to branch out to many dis­ci­plines and spe­cial­i­sa­tions.

The qual­ity im­ple­men­ta­tion of the pro­gramme is over­seen by the School Cur­ricu­lum and Stan­dards Au­thor­ity of Western Aus­tralia, on be­half of the Gov­ern­ment of Western Aus­tralia.

High-qual­ity as­sur­ance prac­tices and ex­ter­nal ex­am­i­na­tions are con­ducted, su­per­vised and as­sessed by the School Cur­ricu­lum and Stan­dards Au­thor­ity (SCSA). The pro­gramme and aca­demic staff de­vel­op­ment are mod­er­ated yearly to en­sure qual­ity teach­ing.

To­day, Sun­way Col­lege is the largest and long­est-run­ning provider of the AUSMAT (Aus­tralian Year 12) in Malaysia. Sun­way lec­tur­ers rate top in “ex­cel­lent teach­ing and as­sess­ment” by the School Cur­ricu­lum and Stan­dards Au­thor­ity of Western Aus­tralia’s An­nual Ex­am­in­ers’ Re­ports.

Sun­way stu­dents have been ranked among the best in Western Aus­tralia and in the Western Aus­tralia pro­gramme world­wide.

Sun­way’s AUSMAT, noted for its strong pas­toral com­po­nent, helps de­velop a whole­some in­di­vid­ual through per­son­alised learn­ing and growth, pre­par­ing stu­dents for univer­sity life and stud­ies.

Stu­dents are chal­lenged to take mul­ti­ple ap­proaches to prob­lem-solv­ing and crit­i­cal­think­ing, nur­tur­ing their over­all cog­ni­tive de­vel­op­ment.

Par­ents, guardians and spon­sors are kept in­formed on stu­dents’ aca­demic per­for­mance and progress through reg­u­lar meet­ings with lec­tur­ers.

Ev­ery year, Sun­way AUSMAT car­ries out a Ca­reer Ex­plo­ration Pro­gramme to help stu­dents ex­plore the var­i­ous study op­tions in Aus­tralia and across the world.

Sun­way Col­lege had the hon­our of the pres­ence of the Lord Mayor of Perth, Lisa Scaf­fidi, as one of the dis­tin­guished speak­ers at the an­nual sem­i­nar this year.

Scaf­fidi led a del­e­ga­tion from sev­eral lead­ing uni­ver­si­ties in Western Aus­tralia, Study Perth and var­i­ous ed­u­ca­tion-re­lated de­part­ments.

The del­e­gates spoke on the ca­reer paths stu­dents could con­sider and the study op­tions avail­able to them.

The Pre-Univer­sity Stud­ies at Sun­way Col­lege is fo­cused on de­liv­er­ing univer­sity prepara­tory pro­grammes to equip stu­dents with crit­i­cal think­ing and in­de­pen­dent learn­ing skills, pre­par­ing them for ad­mis­sions into pre­mier uni­ver­si­ties all over the world.

Ded­i­cated and ap­proach­able aca­demic teams nur­ture and men­tor stu­dents to de­velop and ex­pand th­ese skills and ca­pa­bil­i­ties, re­sult­ing in aca­demic per­for­mance that of­ten ex­ceeds ex­pec­ta­tions.

A strong tra­di­tion of aca­demic ex­cel­lence pre­vails at Sun­way. The stu­dents’ suc­cess sto­ries in the fields of stud­ies such as medicine, sci­ence, engineering, ac­count­ing, busi­ness and arts are tes­ti­monies of the high de­gree of pas­toral care and aca­demic guid­ance of­fered.

Strong em­pha­sis is placed on ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties, where stu­dents are en­cour­aged to ap­proach clubs, so­ci­eties, sports and com­mu­nity ser­vice with as much en­thu­si­asm as their stud­ies. Through th­ese, they learn team spirit and lead­er­ship qual­i­ties, as well as build con­fi­dence, com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills and friend­ship that will ben­e­fit them in their fu­ture un­der­tak­ings.

Other pre-univer­sity pro­grammes of­fered at Sun­way Col­lege are the Cam­bridge GCE A-Level Pro­gramme, Cana­dian In­ter­na­tional Ma­tric­u­la­tion Pro­gramme, Monash Univer­sity Foun­da­tion Year and Sun­way Foun­da­tion in Arts Pro­gramme.
