Assessment & Examinations
The Curriculum Council conducts yearly moderation exercise to validate that the assessment standards applied at Sunway are consistent with that of Western Australian high schools.

The coursework component removes the pressure associated with the single end-of year examination, and provides opportunities to use multiple assessment techniques to help students progress – continuous assessments may include topic tests, quizzes, assignments, investigations, research and examinations. This also prepares students for the learning and assessment methods practised in many universities today. Officers appointed by the Curriculum Council directly supervise and conduct examinations, and all external examination scripts are sent to Western Australia for marking.

Calculation of Numerical Score
AUSMAT provides the flexibility of calculating a student’s score based on ‘Best-4’ subjects, and English as Additional Language (EALD) can be included as a scoring subject. AUSMAT score-counting system: Scores from the ‘Best-4’ subjects provide the Tertiary Entrance Aggregate (TEA) which is then ranked for the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) for University application. (Students must have a scaled mark of at least 50 in EALD or ENGLISH to qualify for WACE.)

It is a home away from home where students get to meet new friends, learn new cultures and experience living independently. Everything is within walking distance from our campus - hospital, shopping mall, theme park, restaurants and banks. Choose between the communal living of the Sun-U Apartment or the condominium lifestyle of Sun-U Residence. A caring hostel master is on hand to oversee the welfare of every occupant.

Safety & Security
Here, the committed security team is made up of Auxiliary Police and trained professionals who work around the clock to ensure that every day is a smooth and peaceful one. Whenever a student feels under the weather, they can make their way to the sick bay. Endearingly known as Nightingale Bay, it is situated near the cafeteria where a matronly Registered Nurse is on duty and well-equipped to handle minor ailments.

Campus Facilities
For your studying pleasure, the Sunway Main Campus building is fitted with 24-hour wireless internet (Wi-Fi) access, so you can study anywhere from the foyer to the Roof Top Garden. This is complemented by top-notch learning facilities like air-conditioned classrooms and lecture halls, modern science laboratories and the expansive Tun Hussein Onn Library. Student life here is simply convenient with amenities that meet all your needs: a bookshop, computer labs to print, scan or photocopy assignments, a cafeteria, recreational and sports facilities, and a Student Centre - a cosy place with a sick bay, counselling services and more. A campus bus service of several different routes within the Klang Valley is also available. • 24 hour Wi-Fi throughout campus • Bookshop • Multi Purpose Hall • Tun Hussein Onn Library • Science Labs • Student Centre • Classrooms • Roof Top Garden

If you thought our pre-university students are complete squares, think again! Our pre-university programmes nurture students through traditional means complemented with learning outside the classroom. Participation in student activities, clubs and societies, field trips and educational workshops, moulds them into effective leaders and communicators.

A Tradition of Success
I learned to become more independent and able to manage my time well. The programme has done a wonderful job serving as a transition from high school to university studies. Sunway MUFY is also not all about studies as there are events that I truly enjoyed getting involved in. Being a part of the Sunway CIMP community endowed me for university in an unforgettable way. The programme made me realise that learning and fun come together as the perfect recipe towards success.

AUSMAT engaged me at a very different educational depth; the challenge to constantly observe, appreciate and critique text and other media introduced me to a whole new experience in quality education.

Unlike other institutions which seem more like factories, my A-Level Programme emphasised quality over quantity. Small-class sizes with brilliant & dedicated lecturers give us ample opportunity to develop our full potential.

Sunway MUFY is the programme that fits well into the undergraduate programme at Monash University and the foundation I needed for my undergraduate degree there. The curriculum was very well-organised and the institution offers great facilities.
