Malaysian students now have access to a global network and high-quality international university undergraduate and postgraduate study options. Graduates from Australian universities are employed around the globe, due to the impeccable international reputation of the Australian education system.
Swinburne Online CEO, Denice Pitt said the university is excited to be extending its Australian offering into Malaysia, where there is a gap in the market when it comes to quality university degree offerings that are accessible to adult learners that may want to work and study at the same time.
“We know that studying a high-quality university degree is a priority for most people considering higher education, but not everyone can afford the time to attend an on-campus University, let alone an international one”, said Ms Pitt.
“Swinburne’s launch into Malaysia recognises the need for, international university degrees, and is making it easy for students to study an international degree online in their home country.
“The majority of our students are people who are looking for a career change or a step up in their career, and need to manage their study around existing work and life commitments.
“Our students are part of an established global network of students, alumni and academics and graduates with a degree from a top 400 university in the world.”
Enrollments are now open for new students to begin studying online Monday 2 November. Students have access to 15 degrees across the discipline areas of business, social science, design and communications. Swinburne Online students receive support seven days a week throughout their degree.
On graduating, students receive a degree from Swinburne University of Technology and join the 4,000 existing Malaysian alumni with strong links to the Malaysian Australian Alumni Council.
Swinburne University of Technology already have a strong presence in Malaysia with its only international campus in Sarawak. The Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus opened in Kuching in 2000 and caters to students who prefer to study on campus.
