International Office Team Visits Sunway JB Campus

WHICH WAY? ........SUNWAY…..... This seems to latest catch phrase of the secondary school youngsters in the state of Johor seeking tertiary education.

Johor Bahru is the economic center for the state of Johor. The economy of Johor Bahru is also influenced by Singapore because of the large number of Singaporeans visiting here.

The IO team at Sunway College JB

Sunway College Johor Bahru, which is part of the Sunway Education Group established its presence in 2004. The ultra-modern campus is set in the southern tip of Peninsular Malaysia, built on a 10-acre piece of land earmarked for the development of the education corridor at Mount Austin, Johor Bahru.
