Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus

Young Learners Immersion Program

Our Sarawak Campus’ International Mobility Program hosts participants from all around the world to learn new skills and knowledge accompanied by the rich Sarawak biodiversity and culture.

Kuching, the capital of Sarawak, has been described as one of the most liveable cities in Southeast Asia. Rich in history with old-world charms blended into 21st century modernity, the city is home to more than half a million people.

Sarawak is also the most culturally diverse. Its 29 ethnic communities are well-known for their friendliness and hospitality. Each community practices their own customs and traditions and nowhere else in Malaysia can such colourful diversity be found.
