Welcome to the School of American Education!

As we take the next big step for our School with Arizona State University, ranked as the most innovative university in the US for 9 years in a row by the U.S. News and World Report, I feel excited for what's to come. The partnership between Sunway SAE and ASU opens up new doors for a future with limitless possibilities. Sunway aims to offer domestic U.S. degrees with dual degree options from both Sunway and ASU, making quality American education affordable and accessible without leaving the country. By collaborating with ASU, our students will have access to an enhanced American learning experience. 

The American Degree Transfer Program at Sunway University prepares students to transfer to top-tier universities in the US, Canada, the UK, New Zealand, Australia, and Malaysia. Over 75% of students successfully transfer to Tier 1 US universities annually, with almost half receiving scholarships.

Our ADTP curriculum is based on the US liberal arts approach, which is inclusive, industry-relevant, and flexible. The program allows students to immerse in subjects of different disciplines while assessments are conducted using a myriad of approaches geared towards bringing out the best in each learner. An ADTP from Sunway will equip students with adaptive skills to meet the demands of a global economy.

At Sunway, we strive to help students adjust seamlessly into top US schools by providing a superior American education and supporting extra-curricular activities that build confidence, balance, and a strong sense of community.

I look forward to welcoming you!
