Sunway University is one of Malaysia’s premier private universities. It is owned and governed by the not for profit Jeffrey Cheah Foundation, established by the founder and chairman of the Sunway Group of companies, Tan Sri Dr. Jeffrey Cheah. Based in the exciting Sunway resort city, in the suburbs of Kuala Lumpur, it is fully approved as a higher education provider by the Ministry of Education of Malaysia. In the last national quality assurance exercise “SETARA 13” the university received a score of 5 (“excellent”) - the highest score awarded to any university in the country and is rated 5* by the QS for its teaching, employability and facilities. The University’s vision is to become a world class institution. 

The University awards its own degrees but also awards degrees of Lancaster University in the UK (ranked in the top 1% of institutions globally) under a validation arrangement. The university has three faculties (Sunway University Business School, the Faculty of Arts, and the Faculty of Science and Technology). The University currently has around 6000 students but has an ambitious growth plan. The University hosts the Jeffrey Cheah Institute on Southeast Asia, one of the leading think tanks in its field. Through a benefaction from Tan Sri Dr. Jeffrey Cheah, the University has also established strong relationships with Harvard University, with a two-way exchange of research scholars, and with Oxford and Cambridge universities in the UK. 

To further enhance its teaching, learning and research mission, and to accelerate its academic development, Sunway University is now recruiting academic staff of the highest calibre for its Department of Nursing.
