SUNWAY College Kuching has a student population of 1,500 and is the largest tuition provider of professional accounting courses in Easy Malaysia.
The College conducts three prestigious accountancy programmes from the United Kingdom that are accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA): ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants), CAT (Certified Accounting Technician) and LCCI (London Chamber of Commerce and Industry) International Qualifications Diploma in Accounting. Sunway Kuching is a subsidiary of Sunway TES, the financial courses division of Sunway University.
1. Platinum status
We are the first and only tuition provider in East Malaysia, and one of only four tuition providers in the whole of Malaysia, to be awarded the Platinum Approved Learning Partner Status by the ACCA. Worldwide, only 96 tuition providers have been granted this prestigious ranking, which is achieved upon meeting stringent performance indicators such as pass rates which surpass those of the world, effective management and relevant support services. Since achieving Platinum Status in 2011, we have successfully sustained it for the last six consecutive examination sittings.
2. Proven track record
As a Platinum Approved Learning Partner, our pass rates have consistently matched or surpassed that of the world pass rate. In the last examination sitting (December 2012), our pass rates superseded the Malaysian and World Pass Rates for all 12 ACCA papers that we offered. Our college has produced the most number of ACCA and CAT graduates in East Malaysia. To date, we have nurtured a total of 250 ACCA affiliates and 520 CAT finalists. We have also produced more World and Malaysian prize-winners than any other institution in East Malaysia. To date, we have garnered three CAT World Prize Winners and 19 ACCA and CAT Malaysian Prize Winners.
3. Fastest route to becoming a professional accountant, without having to leave home
We offer you the opportunity to read for, and complete, the entire ACCA programme locally at under RM40,000. Furthermore, an SPM school leaver can complete his or her studies at our college in three years and become an ACCA affiliate at the age of 21.
4. Support from Sunway-TES
We are fully supported by our parent company, Sunway-TES. Located in Bandar Sunway, Selangor, Sunway-TES has more than 5000 students and is touted as the single largest CAT/ACCA tuition provider in the World. They are the only tuition provider in Malaysia to have sustained their Platinum Status 10 years in a row since 2003. Our partnership with Sunway-TES allowed us to introduce the “Sunway Success Strategy”, an academic system which emphasizes the close monitoring of performance, attendance and retention. This quality assurance programme is one of the prime reasons why our college has been able to maintain such high pass rates and produce so many prize winning students.
5. Structured learning
Our programmes are structured to fully prepare students for their examinations and consist of lectures, tutorials and effective revision classes. Students are also required to sit for internal progress tests and mock examinations which are set distinctly like the actual examinations.
6. Academic and professional leadership
It is an advantage that our CEO and the majority of our academic staff have had working experience in the accountancy and finance profession, and the corporate sector. This background enriches the content of lectures and discussions, and ensures that students gain valuable learning experience from highly qualified lecturers.
7. Employment placement programme
We have successfully established internship and job placement programmes with a number of international audit and accounting services firms, including the ‘Big Four’ (Deloitte, Ernst and Young, KPMG and PricewaterhouseCoopers) and medium-sized firms. This means that most of our students are provided with opportunities to kick-start their career at these reputable organizations when or even before they graduate.
8. Holistic development and enriching experience
A student’s life at Sunway College Kuching is not confined to just classrooms and the library. We make sure that our students receive an education that extends beyond books. Our curriculum incorporates applied learning, through activities like site visits, case study competitions, seminars, and workshops. This makes our students more in tune with the real world and allows them to quickly find their feet in employment.
