Swinburne Sarawak is ranked as the no.1 international university in Borneo according to the inaugural Times Higher Education Asia Pacific Ranking 2017. Globally, Swinburne is recognised for producing graduates that are in high demand by employers as confirmed by the first ever QS Graduate Employability Rankings with Swinburne attaining a Top 200 rank.
