As one of the entities within the Sunway Education Group, Sunway University has rapidly grown into a leading brand name in Malaysia’s higher education sector, gaining a name for itself as a high-quality private not-for-profit institution. Here are some of the milestones along our journey since our initial foundation in 2004.


Our academic programmes include a broad range of diplomas, bachelors' degrees, masters' degrees, and doctoral degrees. We also offer some short courses. All of our programmes have been designed to meet industry needs and give optimal employment or further study opportunities. Many of our degree programmes also lead to degrees of Lancaster University, UK (please refer to the highlighted programmes). Some programmes also include preparation for the professional exams of certain professional bodies or exemptions from such exams for professional body recognition. 


Our research enables us to contribute to the economic and social development of the nation and ensures that our academic staff keep abreast of the latest developments in their fields and also use their research to inform their teaching. We have a number of research collaborations with leading international universities including joint research centres. We welcome enquiries from researchers interested in joining us or collaborating with us, and also welcome applicants for research masters degrees or PhD study with our professors and research centres (see our Programmes page for details on our current masters and PhD programmes).
