Key Benefits

AUSMAT @ Sunway: A Balanced Learning Experience

Established Australian qualification with global recognition

Our students have gained admission into universities in Australia including the prestigious Group-of-Eight (Go8), universities in New Zealand and many other countries around the world. The broad learning pedagogies prepare you well for university level studies and research, and allow you to branch out to many disciplines and specialisations.

AUSMAT score-counting advantages

Students can optimise their ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) University Entrance through the score calculation of Best-4 subjects.

Assurance of quality from School Curriculum and Standards Authority of Western Australia

Highly rigorous quality assurance practices and external examinations are conducted, supervised and assessed by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA). Our programme and academic staff development are moderated yearly to ensure quality teaching.

Good track record

Today, we are the largest and longest running provider of the AUSMAT (Australian Year 12) in Malaysia. Our lecturers rate top in ‘excellent teaching and assessment’ by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority of Western Australia’s Annual Examiners’ Reports. Sunway students have been ranked amongst the best in Western Australia and in the Western Australia programme worldwide.

Pastoral care

Noted for its strong pastoral component, Sunway’s AUSMAT develops a wholesome individual through personalised learning and growth, preparing students for university life and studies. Students are challenged to take multiple approaches to problem solving and critical thinking, nurturing their overall cognitive development. Parents, guardians and sponsors are kept informed on students’ academic performance and progress through regular meetings with our lecturers.

Flexible combination of diverse subjects

AUSMAT does not restrict students to any specialisation or subject combination. Depending on their personal interests, students choose and combine a variety of subjects for their studies allowing them to develop their best potentials.


The AUSMAT programme is delivered over two semesters or three semesters (September intake).

Assessment & Examinations

The School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) conducts yearly moderation exercise to validate that the assessment standards applied at Sunway are consistent with that of Western Australian high schools.

It has a balanced assessment approach of 50% school assessment and 50% external examination. The school assessment component removes the pressure associated with the single end-of-year examination, and provides opportunities to use multiple assessment techniques to help student’s progress – continuous assessments may include topic tests, quizzes, assignments, investigations, research and examinations.

Officers appointed by the SCSA directly supervise and conduct examinations, and all external examination scripts are sent to Western Australia for marking.

Calculation of Numerical Score

AUSMAT provides the benefit of calculating a student’s score based on ‘Best-4’ subjects. These scores are then ranked for the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) for university applications.

Student life


“With so many Pre-University programs on offer, the decision on which to pursue after high-school can be a difficult one. My choice in picking the Australian Matriculation program is among the best decisions I have ever made so far; without which the scholarship I am currently on would not have been possible. Not only did it effectively prepare me for an Australian degree, the program itself was thoroughly enjoyable with great lecturers and students activities all year round!”

“I personally believe that AUSMAT is a perfect blend of both academic rigour and personal development. When I was in AUSMAT, I learned how to be consistent, responsible, and independent as the program strongly encouraged self- learning, which was a great stepping stone before entering university. The lecturers were extremely passionate about their respective subjects, and they were more than willing to help students who were in need of assistance. I found the “50% Examination, 50% Coursework” format extremely flexible, and constant assessments throughout the year meant that I had to discard the infamous “last-minute studying” habit. The constant revision and practice kept my mind sharp, and now, I am happy to say that the skills I have developed in AUSMAT are benefiting me greatly in the university. In short, I have no regrets choosing AUSMAT as my Pre- University program.”

"AUSMAT put me ahead of the competition when the time came to begin my undergraduate studies. In addition, the challenging, welcoming and supportive environment provided the ideal experience that prepared me for my time studying in Australia.”

"I enjoyed the spectrum of AUSMAT study that taught me to approach my studies from different aspects through critical and analytical thinking. I came across some of the most passionate and dedicated lecturers that made lessons enjoyable and made some wonderful friends. My dream of obtaining a scholarship and pursuing my tertiary studies in the UK would not have been possible, without the help and support from AUSMAT’s amazing team of lecturers. I cherished each and every moment during my study at Sunway AUSMAT."

"The flexibility of being able to choose my own subjects allowed me to personalise my pre-university learning experience according to my needs & interests. Although AUSMAT is challenging, many fun activities were organised throughout the academic year. My advice? Work hard, play hard & it’ll all be worth it! As it was for me!”
