Foundation courses

Swinburne Sarawak offers foundation / pre-university courses for SPM / GCE / IGCSE O Level or equivalent qualification, school leavers. We offer Foundation Studies in business, design, information technology/multimedia and engineering/science. Upon completion, this course provides a direct entry into any degree courses of your choice.

Undergraduate courses

Swinburne Sarawak offers university courses, also known as degrees or undergraduate programs. These courses provide you with the opportunity to deepen your knowledge across a range of study areas, or specialise in one particular area. We also offer pathway opportunities through our Foundation programs, which act as a pathway to a degree.


Degree courses, also known as bachelor degrees or undergraduate courses require a minimum of three years and 24 units of study. They provide students with a professional qualification.

Entry usually requires the completion of the Sijil Tinggi Pelajaran Malaysia or GCE A Levels, or their equivalent. In some cases, certain prerequisites studies are required.     

Engineering degrees at Swinburne Sarawak offer an optional Industry-Based Learning (IBL) year. A number of double degree courses are also available.

Double degrees

Double degrees combine two areas of study. On completion, graduates are awarded two degrees.

In terms of study duration, a double degree can save lots of time. Instead of taking the same time as two (separate) degrees, a double degree usually takes a year longer to complete compared to a single degree.

Postgraduate courses

Postgraduate studies are courses and research that are available to students who have completed a first degree in university. At Swinburne Sarawak, the postgraduate studies are undertaken in two ways: by coursework and by research.
