The wide range of universities recognized by and from Sunway University through ADTP has really benefited me in choosing the institution to transfer to.

Ucchishta Sharmen Sivaguru

I not only studied subjects related to my major but was also exposed to leadership and student committee life. Many university representatives were invited to answer questions on their universities and this was extremely helpful.

The program helped me adapt with the US studying system, and through courses like American Culture, History etc., I got better knowledge of the US environment before going there.

The resources and teaching assistance given provoked me to study and apply knowledge to daily life. The program has been of utmost help in my transition to the USA.

I learnt how to be more confident, how to approach other individuals, how to do things in a group; all of which helped me prepare to face the future.

Tan Pei Song

Sunway ADTP was an invaluable experience; I was given the chance to learn, to explore, to experiment, to try new things, to think outside-the-box, to defy expectations and to make something more of myself.

My ADTP lecturers enlightened the whole experience. In class, they are your lecturers but outside of the classroom, they are your friends.

My lecturers were always friendly and helpful, and did not restrict themselves to only classroom issues.

The main purpose is to ensure that students develop a well-rounded education. General Education subjects are normally taken during the first two years of studies, together with proficiencies and some core subjects in their respective degrees. The remaining of their major core and elective subjects will be taught in the U.S. Student performance is continuously assessed through class participation, field trips, quizzes, tests, assignments, projects, presentations and final written examinations. The weightage given to continuous assessment is 60 percent, while the final examination component accounts for 40 percent. The performance indicator is expressed as the Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA), which signifies the average grade of courses attempted and academic standing. One credit hour in the U.S. education system is equal to one clock hour of class per week for a duration of 14 weeks.

Academic Faculty and Research

About 30 percent of the ADTP faculty members are doctoral degree holders (PhD obtained from American, British and Malaysian universities, respectively) and another 30 percent are currently in the process of completing their doctoral degrees. Most faculty members are engaged in research in their respective fields of mathematics/ statistics, economics, engineering, history, physics, chemistry, computer science, finance, management, psychology, and communication. With their research and teaching experiences, they are able to enhance the teaching and learning process within the ADTP.
