The Sunway Foundation in Arts (FIA) creates an academic pathway for students to transition smoothly into tertiary level studies at Sunway University or to selected local and overseas universities. As a Sunway University preparatory programme, FIA has been specially designed to enable students to progress into Sunway University. Subject to achieving minimum university entry required scores for their proposed degree programme, students from FIA are guaranteed a place in Sunway University
The programme was developed with academics from FIA and Sunway University having contributed their expertise and experience, incorporating key elements for students to develop intellectually, emotionally and socially. Ensuring there is a seamless pathway from the foundation year right through to the undergraduate years. Owing to the quality of its provision and the scope of its curriculum, FIA qualification is also accepted by selected local and foreign institutions.
FIA enables students to set personal and academic goals and to identify their individual talents. It develops social responsibility through community involvement and participation in extracurricular activities. It also equips students with technical and soft skills necessary to be resourceful and successful in higher studies and enterprising in their careers.
