International Preparatory Programme (IPP)

About The Programme

The International Preparatory Programme (IPP) is an intensive six-month preparatory programme. International students or candidates from certain countries that want to take certain Sunway University degree programmes (for example programmes in partnership with Lancaster University) will need to take and pass our online six-month International Preparatory Programme (IPP). 

This is a requirement to enrol on a Sunway degree programme that also leads to a degree awarded by Sunway’s partner institution. This requirement does not apply to all international students but only to those from specific countries. If you are an international applicant please check with our counsellors about your own specific situation. 

Please note that students are required to pass all the subjects in the IPP with grade C or above in order to progress into the degree programme.
