Kickstart your future with Swinburne Sarawak’s February intake

KUCHING – Students seeking to pursue a world-class Australian education at a fraction of the cost are encouraged to apply for Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus’ upcoming intake beginning on 26 February for its foundation, diploma, degree and master programs.

Swinburne Sarawak is the only full-fledged international branch campus of Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia. Swinburne Sarawak’s programs are undifferentiated from the Melbourne campus in terms of curriculum and learning outcomes, earning students the same testamurs and qualifications as their Australian peers.

Swinburne Sarawak offers programs in diverse areas of study, including business, computing, design, engineering, quantity surveying, science, arts, media and education. The university’s programs equip students with the knowledge and skills required for prospective employment opportunities. Programs are recognised by professional bodies and with industrial certification.

Last year, the university also introduced four new programs, namely the Diploma of Digital Media Design, Diploma of Information Technology, Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Diploma of Quantity Surveying.

A range of scholarships, bursaries and financial aid options are also available to students seeking support on financial needs. These include internal merit scholarships and bursaries offered by the university from foundation to postgraduate levels of study, in addition to those offered by external providers such as Yayasan Sarawak.

Among these options is the Yayasan Sarawak BP40 Bursary Scheme, a special bursary scheme for eligible Sarawakian Bumiputera students that allows them to enrol into their preferred programmes at foundation, diploma or degree levels with subsidised tuition fees. For students under the BP40 scheme, the total tuition fees at Swinburne Sarawak throughout the duration of their studies are as affordable as tuition fees at any public universities (IPTA) in Malaysia.

Swinburne Sarawak has strong industry partnerships and collaboration, and its undergraduate programs are designed to ensure that students have the opportunity to experience valuable hands-on industry practice through the university’s Work Integrated Learning (WIL). This WIL approach in the form of placements, internships or industry-linked projects empowers students with the confidence, skills, real industry experience and other attributes that are crucial for their entry into the workplace.

Furthermore, students who are interested in gaining exposure abroad can explore transfer or exchange options during any semester. These experiences are not only enriching for students personally and academically but can also bolster their employment prospects even before they graduate.

Swinburne Sarawak aims to nurture well-rounded graduates who are fully prepared to navigate real-world challenges. Apart from studies, students are encouraged to join clubs, societies and events on campus to fully benefit from the robust student experience at the university.

The university has also put in great effort towards its RM60 million comprehensive campus upgrade project since 2019, in line with its long-term commitment to enhancing the campus experience for students. The campus upgrades support Swinburne’s mission of fostering student success, creating a positive and vibrant campus environment and supporting the university’s growing student population.

The construction, reconstruction and extension of various infrastructures including the teaching and learning spaces, library, food hall, Student Village, Student Hub and the Borneo Atrium at the heart of the campus will benefit students and the community as a whole.
