AS one of the most pre­ferred Aus­tralian uni­ver­si­ties in Malaysia, Swin­burne’s Sarawak branch-campus was set up 2000 and is the only in­ter­na­tional branch-campus of Swin­burne Uni­ver­sity of Tech­nol­ogy based in Mel­bourne.

One hun­dred per cent em­ploy­a­bil­ity (for se­lected Busi­ness and En­gi­neer­ing pro­grammes) and global em­ployer de­mand:

Based on the last grad­u­ate tracer study con­ducted by the uni­ver­sity’s ca­reer of­fice, grad­u­ates re­ported up to a 100% em­ploy­ment rate for nu­mer­ous busi­ness and en­gi­neer­ing cour­ses while the over­all em­ploy­ment rate came in at a high 93%.

This is at­trib­ut­able to the strong em­pha­sis placed on high qual­ity, en­gaged teach­ing and learn­ing – is no sur­prise that Swin­burne grad­u­ates are hired by the top 100 global brands (In­ter­brand Best Global Brands 2016 Rank­ings), which in­cludes Google, IBM, Ap­ple, Citibank, Shell, Ama­zon and Ac­cen­ture.

From foun­da­tion stud­ies to bach­e­lor’s, mas­ter’s and PhD pro­grammes, stu­dents choose path­ways to suit their in­ter­ests and ca­reer aspirations. Its foun­da­tion stud­ies, for ex­am­ple, lead to a host of de­gree pro­grammes in busi­ness, com­put­ing, de­sign, en­gi­neer­ing and sci­ence pro­grammes ac­cred­ited by pro­fes­sional bod­ies and iden­ti­cal to those at its home campus in Mel­bourne, Aus­tralia – this means when a Swin­burne Sarawak un­der­grad­u­ate com­pletes his stud­ies, he is awarded the same Aus­tralian de­gree as his peers in Mel­bourne.

In 2016, Swin­burne was ranked for the first time in the QS rank­ings for world-class grad­u­ate em­ploy­a­bil­ity, re­in­forc­ing Swin­burne as a uni­ver­sity that pro­vides prac­ti­cal ca­reer out­comes for its grad­u­ates.

Swin­burne's po­si­tion as a world-class uni­ver­sity was recog­nised in the

2016 Times Higher Ed­u­ca­tion’s Top 100 most in­ter­na­tional uni­ver­si­ties rank­ings. Along­side Swin­burne’s sec­ond con­sec­u­tive ap­pear­ance in the 2015 QS Top 100 Un­der 50, these rank­ings re­in­force Swin­burne as a uni­ver­sity with a depth of ex­per­tise in teach­ing and re­search, both in Aus­tralia and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

Swin­burne was also ranked one of the world’s top 500 uni­ver­si­ties by the pres­ti­gious 2016 Aca­demic Rank­ing of World Uni­ver­si­ties (ARWU). Swin­burne achieved a top 75 rank­ing in the ARWU in the field of civil en­gi­neer­ing and has ranked in the top 200 in­sti­tu­tions in the world in sci­ence.

Swin­burne has been named one of the world’s top 400 uni­ver­si­ties by the Times

Strong in­ter­na­tional rank­ings:

Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Uni­ver­sity World Rank­ings 2016-2017. In 2016, Swin­burne was again ranked in the Times Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Top 100 Un­der 50 Rank­ings, an in­dex of the world’s top uni­ver­si­ties un­der the age of 50.

Swin­burne has also been recog­nised as hav­ing one of the best de­sign schools in the world by the 2016 QS World Rank­ings of Uni­ver­si­ties by Sub­ject. The uni­ver­sity was one of only three in­sti­tu­tions in Mel­bourne to be listed in the top 50 for the Art and De­sign sub­ject area.

Be­sides ob­tain­ing a glob­ally recog­nised de­gree, ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion at Swin­burne Sarawak is only a frac­tion of the cost of study­ing abroad and with the cost of liv­ing in Kuch­ing lower com­pared to other ma­jor towns in Malaysia, Swin­burne Sarawak is an at­trac­tive op­tion for many stu­dents from Penin­su­lar Malaysia be­cause of di­rect flights from Kuala Lumpur, Pe­nang, Jo­hor Baru and Kota Baru.

Although an en­tire course may be com­pleted at Swin­burne Sarawak, de­gree stu­dents may also trans­fer to the Mel­bourne campus to com­plete them or go on a se­mes­ter abroad via the Stu­dent Ex­change Pro­gramme while pay­ing lo­cal fees.

With more than 4,000 stu­dents from over 60 coun­tries and ex­pe­ri­enced teach­ing staff from many parts of the world, the campus of­fers a rich learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with an in­ter­na­tional flavour.

A higher re­turn on in­vest­ment: Holis­tic uni­ver­sity ex­pe­ri­ence:

Swin­burne Sarawak stu­dents are en­cour­aged to join any of the 40 ex­tracur­ric­u­lar sports and recre­ational clubs. These of­fer a holis­tic uni­ver­sity ex­pe­ri­ence and pro­vide fun ac­tiv­i­ties, which help mould stu­dents into well-rounded in­di­vid­u­als.

As a uni­ver­sity of tech­nol­ogy, Swin­burne Sarawak also has ad­vanced fa­cil­i­ties. Scholarships and study loans

Newly en­rolled stu­dents with pub­lic exam re­sults that meet the cri­te­ria may be el­i­gi­ble for scholarships. The uni­ver­sity also as­sists with ap­pli­ca­tions for schol­ar­ship and fi­nan­cial aids of­fered by state agen­cies and loans from govern­ment-linked agen­cies such as Mara, PTPTN and Yayasan Sarawak while scholarships are also of­fered by pri­vate and char­i­ta­ble bod­ies through the uni­ver­sity.
