Welcome to Sunway University
Sunway University is one of Malaysia’s leading private universities dedicated to providing quality holistic education for all regardless of race, creed or financial standing. By upholding our core values of Integrity, Humility and Excellence, we support the discovery, advancement, transmission and application of knowledge that meets the needs of our society and the global community. Our values-based education guides our actions and behaviour. We strive to ensure our campus community develops a sustainable mindset by embracing an ecological worldview, by understanding systems perspective and by developing emotional intelligence.
Sunway University is part of the Sunway Education Group which is owned and governed by the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation (JCF), Malaysia’s largest education-focused social enterprise. Through this unique not-for-profit structure, operating surpluses are channelled back into the institutions or disbursed as scholarships, research grants and expansion funds for faculty and facilities to ensure quality education in perpetuity.
A Globally Connected & Sustainable University
The University has a 5-star “excellent” rating by the Malaysian government (in the latest Setara assessment exercise), and is one of just eleven universities in Malaysia to be awarded the special “Premier Digital Technology University” status. We have developed close collaborations with many leading international universities including Harvard University and the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Some professors from the latter hold distinguished visiting appointments giving occasional lectures to our University and the wider Sunway City community through our Jeffrey Cheah Distinguished Speakers series of public lectures. These are named after the founder of Sunway City and of the University, Tan Sri Jeffrey Cheah, who is also the chairman of Sunway Group, one of Malaysia’s leading industrial conglomerates and developer of Sunway City. We have a very close relationship with Lancaster University in the UK, enabling our students on many programmes to also qualify for Lancaster degrees.
So welcome to a globally connected, forward looking university, dedicated to sustainability, and located in arguably one of the most exciting campus destinations on the planet in the warm heart of tropical sunny Malaysia.
