KUCHING 32 national and international partners attended the Partners Conference organised by Swinburne at its Kuching campus recently.

The participating partners were representatives from all around Malaysia including Kuching, Kota Kinabalu, Kuala Lumpur, Subang, Johor Bahru, and Penang, as well as representatives from Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, China (Chengdu, Nanjing and Shanghai), India (Mumbai-Andheri, Bangalore, Chennai and Ahmedabad), Bangladesh, South Korea, and Kuwait.

The Partners Conference served as a platform for Swinburne’s Marketing and Student Recruitment department to provide opportunity for their partner institutions to learn more about Swinburne including its course offerings, faculties, facilities and services.

The event also aimed to strengthen the ongoing working relationships between Swinburne and the partner institutions, as well as showcase Kuching as the preferred study destination for prospective students who are keen to pursue an Australian education at an affordable cost.

Throughout the three-day conference, the partners were treated to welcoming dinner upon arrival; attended a product briefing session with the Faculty of Business, Design and Arts, Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Science, and School of Foundation; and visited the laboratories, student accommodation, gym and library.
