The University has a number of partnerships and collaborations with leading academic, research and training institutions worldwide.
We have a close educational partnership with Lancaster University, UK, which enables students taking many of our degree programmes to obtain a dual degree from Lancaster in addition to their Sunway University degree. With Lancaster being ranked among the top UK universities, this partnership gives an excellent opportunity for Malaysian and international students to get a leading UK degree alongside a local degree whilst studying in Southeast Asia.
The University also has a partnership with Le Cordon Bleu, one of the world’s oldest and well-known international culinary training organizations, which enables students to get a professional certificate in addition to their Sunway diploma or degree in certain programmes in the hospitality field.
More details of both of the above educational partnerships and the related Sunway courses can be found on our programmes pages.
In research, the University is collaborating with many institutions nationally and internationally. For example, research is being conducted in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on Carbon capture technology, and with Lancaster University we have established the joint Future Cities Research Institute tackling the issues of increasing global urbanization and sustainability. Research has been jointly carried out on gene therapy for cancer treatment with Harvard Medical School and the University also supports and hosts part of the Harvard Medical School Leadership in Medicine Southeast Asia programme.
