Sunway College rated 6 Stars for MyQUEST

The Malaysian Quality Evaluation System for Private Colleges (MyQUEST) is one of many prestigious and not-to-be-missed ratings for Malaysian private colleges. Sunway College is awarded 6 stars in the college-based rating and general programmes cluster in MyQUEST 2014/2015, further proving itself as a leading learning institution in Malaysia. MyQUEST 2014/2015 is a rating system developed by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) which evaluates the performances of private colleges in Malaysia with non-university or non-university college status based on evaluations carried out in 2013/2014 in terms of students, programmes, graduates, resources and governance.

MyQUEST defines 6-Star colleges as Outstanding (Terbilang) and 5 stars as Excellent (Cemerlang). In addition to the 6-star rating in performance and achievement, Sunway College also achieved 5 stars in two areas, namely Social Sciences, Business and Law cluster as well as International Student Management System.

This MyQUEST achievement is a small segment of many celebrations and accolades enjoyed by Sunway College. Founded by Tan Sri Dr Jeffrey Cheah AO, Sunway College is one of the leading institutions of the Sunway Education Group which is owned and governed by Malaysia’s largest not-for-profit social enterprise, the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation.

Dedicated to quality education, Sunway College offers pre-university programmes, undergraduate and postgraduate level twinning programmes with Victoria University, and professional accounting courses through the Sunway TES Centre for Accountancy Excellence such as the Association of Chartered Certified Accountant (ACCA), Certified Accounting Technician (CAT), Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (CFAB), Malaysian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA), Certified Internal Auditors (CIA), Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) and Certified Practising Accountants (CPA).

Teo Ee Sing, Executive Director of Sunway College was pleased with the consistent and excellent performance of the College. “I’m happy to see Sunway College grow and being regarded as an outstanding college by MyQUEST. The successes so far should be attributed to our inspirational and dedicated faculties and teams,” said Teo.

Dr Khatijah Khalid, Chief Executive of Sunway College and her team have been instrumental in achieving this. “The MyQUEST achievement certainly serves as a positive motivation for us all to reach greater heights. While we thrive to maintain the current standards, we will also work on improving ourselves in other areas of the MyQUEST. Just like the way we nurture our students holistically, we are also constantly improving Sunway College to be a well-rounded quality education provider in Malaysia,” said Dr Khatijah.

Doubling the joy, Sunway College Johor Bahru also achieved 6 stars in the cluster-based (general programmes) rating. The Sunway College JB and Sunway College KL's MyQUEST awards were received by Hor Poh Choo, Principal of Sunway College JB and Dr Khatijah respectively, in the presence of Dr Elizabeth Lee, Senior Executive Director of Sunway Education Group and Sunway University at the official ceremony.

“My heartiest congratulations to my fellow colleagues who have dedicated much of their passion in ensuring the perpetual success of Sunway College,” Dr Lee lauded. “I am pleased all institutions under the umbrella of Sunway Education Group continuously exceeding expectations. I hope to see more great achievements like MyQUEST as we not only hope to be the leading education group in Malaysia, but also to be on par with world class education providers.”

Besides MyQUEST, Sunway College was also ranked as Asia’s No. 1 in Graduate Employability together with Sunway University by the Student Barometer Survey Entry Wave 2014.
