Sunway University College
Sunway University (originally Sunway University College) was formed with the belief and understanding that higher education is vital to the progress of the Nation. The institution received an auspicious start in 1987 when it was officially opened by the late Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Alhaj Ibni Almarhum Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah Alhaj, the Sultan of Selangor Darul Ehsan. Within a short span of time, its student numbers outgrew the original premises, leading to the development of a new, purpose-built campus, complete with a comprehensive range of modern academic and residential facilities.
For almost 30 years Sunway University College has established a reputation both in Malaysia and overseas, as an inspiring educational leader. Perfectly harnessing the highest quality of academic personnel and an exceptionally diverse range of programmes any global educational powerhouse would be proud of.
This ever-growing reputation was recently propelled to even greater heights as, Sunway University, was awarded the internationally acclaimed QS 5 Star ratings for Teaching, Facilities and Employability. This pioneering spirit of Sunway has seen the University rapidly become one of the nation’s flagship education providers.
Families understand and trust, that Sunway will nurture their children and their children’s future, cherishing both dearly. At Sunway we are destined and determined to produce young adults, not just academically exceptional, but socially inclusive and kind hearted people eager to contribute towards a better society for all.
The positive energy of a Sunway-ian is not a passing emotion but honest values like integrity, humility and excellence which a Sunway State of Mind can offer.
