Sunway Education Group Jeffrey Cheah Foundation

Since its establishment in 1987, Sunway Education Group has always striven to provide quality education for all regardless of race, creed or financial standing.

As one of the pioneers of private education in Malaysia, Sunway Education Group has helped transform the landscape of education in Malaysia and create benchmarks many others in the local industry have emulated.

Sunway Education Group comprises two SETARA* Tier 5 Excellent Rating institutions of higher learning, Sunway University and Monash University Malaysia; global and research-intensive medical school, Jeffrey Cheah School of Medicine and Health Sciences; world award-winning colleges including Sunway College, Sunway College Johor Bahru, Sunway College Kuching and Sunway College Ipoh; a Centre for Accountancy Excellence, Sunway TES; worldwide leader in gastronomy, hospitality and management, Sunway Le Cordon Bleu Institute of Culinary Arts; and the only international school in Malaysia to offer the Ontario (Canada) Secondary School curriculum, Sunway International School.

Sunway Education Group aspires to be the international education hub in Malaysia, one that the nation and Sunway students and staff can be proud of.

The Group is owned and governed by the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation (JCF), a first-of-its-kind and unique structure within the field of private higher education in Malaysia. The entire equity of the Sunway Education Group’s institutions valued at more than RM720 million (now in excess of RM1 billion) was transferred to the not-for-profit JCF to ensure perpetual funding to provide sustainable quality education for all deserving making JCF the largest social enterprise in the country.

Through the JCF, we have cemented closer ties with Brasenose College, University of Oxford, following a landmark agreement in December 2015. We have also forged strategic links with Gonville and Caius, University of Cambridge and Harvard University in the preceding year, making us the only education group in the country to have built close academic ties with a collection of the world’s most preeminent universities. This will significantly elevate the teaching and research standards in our universities and in Malaysia, and is in line with our aim to continuously transform Sunway and its educational institutions into a world-class brand providing quality education that is accessible and equitably available to all.
