World-ranked Swinburne University of Technology visits Vietnam
For the third consecutive year, Swinburne University of Technology has been named as one of the world's top 400 universities by the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU).
Swinburne has ranked in the ARWU’s top 400 since 2012, having been in the top 500 since 2009.
Swinburne has improved its standing in the field of physics, joining the Australian National University in the world’s top 75 universities in the world for this discipline.
Swinburne’s recent international ranking achievements are complemented by impressive ratings in the Good Universities Guide 2014, Australia's only comprehensive degree and university ratings guide. Swinburne rated highly in the categories of educational experience, generic skills, teaching quality, graduate satisfaction and staff qualifications.
These accolades highlight Swinburne’s progress towards fulfilling its aim of becoming Australia’s leading university in science, technology, innovation, business and design. For students, Swinburne’s strategic goals have tangible benefits, including access to high-quality teaching, exposure to high-impact global research, and active engagement with both industry and the community. The aim is for students to graduate with valuable and sought-after skills, knowledge and experiences, so they are in demand by employers, and closer to starting a successful career.
Swinburne also invests in major refurbishments and new infrastructure for teaching and research. Cutting-edge new buildings include the $140 million Advanced Technologies Centre and the $100 million Advanced Manufacturing and Design Centre at the main campus in Hawthorn. Located just 15 minutes by express train from Melbourne’s city centre, students enjoy state-of-the-art multimedia lecture theatres, well-stocked libraries, up-to-date computer labs and wi-fi connectivity, as well as on-campus accommodation.
In 2015, Swinburne will launch its new pathways programs designed for students who may not met the Australian academic or English language entry requirements to enter university directly. The new programs cater to students coming from various study levels including Year 11 completion or High School Diploma Program, College Degree.
The programs provide greater flexibility and opportunities for students to learn in a friendly and supportive environment. Pathways program class sizes are smaller than university classes to ensure students get individual academic and English language support. On successful completion of a pathway program, students have guaranteed access to more than 60 bachelor degrees at Swinburne. Best of all, pathways students are part of Swinburne's dynamic university environment. All classes are taught at the main campus and students have full access to the university's services and facilities.
Numerous Swinburne scholarships valued at up to 394,000,000 VND are available to Vietnamese students for pathways and university undergraduate programs. These are in addition to the prestigious scholarships offered annually to the winner and runners-up of the Way to Olympia Peak competition.
In celebration of Swinburne’s rankings achievements, new pathways programs and scholarships, staff from Melbourne will be joining the Swinburne Vietnam staff and IDP Education in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi to host two information sessions. Prospective students and parents are welcome to attend.
