Teaching quality

Teaching quality

Sunway College, due to its affiliation to Sunway University, sets excellent teaching standards. The University has consistently been awarded a 5-star rating by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University rankings from 2015-2018 for the quality of its teaching, employability and facilities. Apart from learning and research, the University has also invested MYR350 million on teaching facilities.

The faculty has specifically focused on including entrepreneurship in its curriculum and co-curricular activities. Sunway’s interdisciplinary approach supports the founder, Tan Sri Jeffrey Cheah’s vision. He turned a wasteland into Malaysia’s first completely integrate township called the Sunway Resort City, making it the home of several award-winning properties - setting a precedent for the institution’s interdisciplinary goals.

The research faculty is actively involved in the Jeffrey Cheah Institute in Southeast Asia, a think-tank that works on finding solutions to the most significant development problems in the region. Sunway faculty constantly work on promoting new teaching and learning practices. For example, two professors from the Department of Psychology participated in the 1st International Congress of Health Psychology, Health and Education conducted in Spain. The congress met to exchange views on new methods for teaching and learning in the fields of health and science based on the most recent scientific evidence.
