KUCHING: If you are looking to pursue a higher education that is uniquely Australian and to get a degree recognised worldwide, look no further than Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus (Swinburne Sarawak).
It’s the only international branch campus of Swinburne University of Technology based in Melbourne, Australia.
Swinburne Sarawak in its press statement yesterday said it is committed to offering students the best opportunity to acquire the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in their careers.
“Our extensive quality assurance procedures involving continuous liaison and exchange of staff between our Malaysia and Australia campuses guarantee an internationally recognised qualification,” said Swinburne Sarawak.
“Education at Swinburne Sarawak is not restricted to the four walls of a classroom. Students have a lot to do besides academic pursuits they are encouraged to join any of the 40 extra-curricular sports and recreational clubs to build or enhance soft skills valued by employers such as leadership, communication, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.”
As a university of technology, Swinburne Sarawak has advanced facilities that include high-speed internet access, a 24/7 library, world class engineering, research and science labs as well as tutorial rooms and computer labs equipped with cutting edge equipment.
“Where financial aids and scholarships are concerned, students who meet the criteria can apply for assistance from state and government-linked agencies such as MARA, PTPTN and Yayasan Sarawak, or private and charitable bodies,” Swinburne revealed.
