The methods used by the University to determine the overall grade of several pre-university qualifications are as follows:

A-Level

The A-Level is a secondary school leaving qualification in the United Kingdom (UK) and commonly offered as an international qualification outside the UK. Students’ best three grades achieved in their A-Level qualification would be assigned specific points and summated to arrive at a score that would be considered for admission.

International Baccalaureate

If students’ total points on the International Baccalaureate, excluding bonus points, exceed the stated requirements, they would then qualify for admission. Students also need to present proof of successful completion of a diploma.

Graduate Study

For admission to a graduate study programme at Sunway, international students should have completed a relevant bachelor’s or honours degree, as appropriate, with the required grade point average. Students whose first language is not English must also provide proof of proficiency in the English language, with an IELTS score of at least 6.0 or an equivalent score on the TOEFL. In some cases, a portfolio or any other proof of further work done may also be required.
