Sunway College - Testimonials

Muhammad Hafiz bin Samsuddin
Sunway TES’s highly dedicated lecturers and the conducive study environment here have facilitated my academic progress hence enabling me to accomplish highly satisfactory results in my CAT (Certified Accounting Technician) examinations.
Mony Norin Tau, Cambodia
Looking back at my experience at VU brings me nothing but wonderful memories and fulfilment. Not only did I gain great knowledge and wisdom from the marvellous teaching staff preparing me for success in future employment, I also obtained lifelong learning lessons in the general aspects of life due to the many fantastic people from various walks of life I encountered over the years. VU is a place of opportunity where you are given a chance to shine and a choice to be extraordinary in your own unique way. If I could go back in time, I would choose VU as my choice of university over and over again.
Tan Wen Liang, MUFY Alumnus
My learning experience in Monash University Foundation Year (MUFY) was invaluable and enjoyable. The programme provided a highly supportive learning atmosphere, and sharpened my personality to be more disciplined and independent. MUFY boosted my confidence and skills to adapt to the challenging environment in my Engineering Degree at Monash University. The invaluable experience continues to inspire me in my PhD studies.
Ko Chia Huey, FIA Alumna
Don't think outside the box, think like there is no box. Sunway Foundation in Arts (FIA) has taught me to be creative, innovative and proactive. These three lessons have brought me to where I am today! From classes to field trips, assignments to exams, you will have to juggle between so many tasks, but I assure you, your time spent in FIA will be the most memorable and amazing experience in your learning journey.
Eric Chiang Hinn Yuen, CIMP Alumnus
It all started back in 2009 where Canadian International Matriculation Programme (CIMP) had nurtured my passion in photography. I’m eternally grateful that all of my lecturers were supportive of my dreams. The exceptional academic and extra-curricular activities experience that I have learnt from CIMP have provided me with a strong foundation to pursue my ambition. If it was not for CIMP, I believe my dream will be just a dream.
Um Hye Rin, Korea
Sunway welcomed me with great hospitality and made sure that I settle into the new environment when I first arrived. As I joined Foundation in Arts programme in Sunway College to continue my study, I learned not only about the subjects that taught in class, but also other things that we need to know as a global citizen. Sunway helped me to look at the things differently and think differently. My world is so much bigger compared to a few years ago, and I can’t wait for my world to get even bigger than now.
Adilet Tursyn, Kazakhstan
CIMP in Sunway College was a rich learning environment filled with extracurricular activities such as various sporting events, trekking trips, and the student council. Following my stay at Sunway I moved to Brisbane, Australia where I received an offer to study information technology and economics at the University of Queensland- one of the best and prestigious universities in the world. I have acquired an invaluable foundation essential for my future education and career at Sunway.
Kamaleshwaran, FIST Alumnus
My experience with the Sunway Foundation in Science and Technology (FIST) programme was life changing. Not only was I able to affirm my passion and interest for the workings of the human mind, it also aided my self-confidence, socializing ability, and passion for educating. My lecturers’ encouragement in the present day still keeps me going. FIST helps prepare students for their future, both academically and mentally. I’m truly glad to have pursued this programme.
Rupini Deepa Rajagopalan
My experience at VU has been one of fond memories. The lecturers and staff were always dedicated and ready to help me with all my questions. I was also part of the student committee at VU, where I helped to organise various events. This strengthened my confidence and boosted my leadership skills. Most importantly, the international mix of students made it a very diverse and culturally exciting educational experience. After seven years since graduation, I still make it a point to visit the staff at VU whenever I am back in Malaysia. Their welcoming smile always awaits. All in all, I am glad I made the choice to study at VU!
