In the early 1990s, Monash University established a partnership with Sunway University College.
Under this arrangement, Malaysian students would enroll and spend their first year in Malaysia, before transferring to one of Monash's Australian campuses to complete their degree.
In 1998, the Malaysian Government formally invited Monash to develop a comprehensive campus, making it the first foreign university in Malaysia.
By 2007, it had 3,300 students, and had established a new, purpose-built, fully independent campus.
The University has stated that it intends the campus to eventually hold around 10,000 students.
Monash University's Sunway campus offers courses through: School of Science Head: Prof Pua Eng Chong School of Arts & Social Sciences Head: Prof James Chin School of Business Head: Prof Ron Edwards School of Engineering Head: Prof Ian Prince School of Information Technology Head: Prof Lee Poh Aun School of Medicine and Health Sciences Head: Prof Datuk Dr Anuar Zaini All Schools offer honours programs, Master's, MPhil and PhD courses are also offered in the Sunway Campus.
Most courses offered by Monash University in Malaysia are accredited in Malaysia and Australia.
Recently, the university also received accreditation from the Australian Medical Council (AMC) for its MBBS programme.
MBBS is the first program fully taught outside Australia and New Zealand to be accredited by the AMC.
Monash has also gained accreditation in the Engineering Courses by the professional regulatory bodies such as Institution of Engineers Australia (IEAust) and The Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).
