Parents’ Information & Guidelines

WELCOME to Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus.

We hope to give you all the information you need to best support and advise your child on this exciting journey, and also answer any questions you may have about Swinburne.

Transitioning from school to university often requires a period of adjustment. There is so much to learn, new people to meet and a new way of life to be experienced.

As parents we need to readjust our way of thinking about our children and how we interact with them.

How Do You Do That?

  • Help your child adjust to the new environment.
  • Encourage them to be independent.
  • Encourage them to be an active student.

How Do We Help Your Child Adjust To Their New Environment?
