"The supportive teachers truly helped me not only in building up my German language skills, but also in getting useful insights into their culture. Sunway College andCDC took care of all other affairs (visa application, accommodation, etc.) whichallowed me to focus completely on developing my linguistic abilities. Meanwhile in Germany, the staff of CDC became our little family here, ever ready to lend a listening ear and a helping hand.”

“The teachers at Sunway College and CDC are dedicated and always put students first. Though it gets quite intensive in the earlier levels, my teachers always ensure students are never slacking. They understand how challenging it is to learn a new language but they also understand when fun is introduced to learning a new language, it’s the best way for students to learn a new foreign language. The most helpful learning method for me is to use the language daily in verbal conversation with others and being in Germany was really helpful.”

“The 50/50% - coursework/exam structure of the course aims to aid students in adapting into the workload structure in university. It has really helped me in terms of managing my time and coping with workloads from course works, classes, as well as other commitments that I undertake during my undergraduate studies. It was a really holistic experience in AUSMAT at Sunway College KL, which definitely facilitated my growth and transition from a school student to a competent undergraduate.”

“AUSMAT is hands down the best phase of my life, a big stepping stone into adulthood, and a key aid to my maturity as a student and as a person. In AUSMAT, I learned skills to manage myself and my schedules efficiently which is very helpful in enduring the hectic schedule of med school."

“Being an AUSMAT student was a memorable period of my life. Though it was short, I gained friends whom have contributed a lot in my effort to improve my social skills. They are my lifelong friends whom I still keep in touch with though we completed AUSMAT. Moreover, AUSMAT helped me tremendously in preparing me for my undergraduate years here in Germany. As a large part of what I’m learning now was what I have already learnt in AUSMAT, it reduces the stress and pressure to assimilate in a new land with a new education system. I don’t feel rushed or stressed in learning as AUSMAT has prepared me well for my degree.”

My time at AUSMAT was an enjoyable, eye-opening experience. Although the duration of the programme was short, it has successfully instilled lifelong learning skills necessary for me to take on university life with confidence and independence. The school-based assessment may prove challenging for some, but with an exceptional team of friendly lecturers and wonderful friends to support you - you’ll never find yourself lost while approaching the transition to early adulthood.

AUSMAT has given me important insights into the university learning style. My first year at university would not have been smooth sailing if it weren’t for the experience and skills I had developed during my AUSMAT year. The depth of learning as well as the great support from lecturers have truly made AUSMAT a one-of-a-kind learning experience that I will always cherish.

Choosing AUSMAT will always be the best decision I’ve ever made for my education. Not only does it provide the knowledge students need for undergraduate studies, the lecturers are also very dedicated to guiding their students to achieve their fullest potential. I’ve learnt a lot from AUSMAT academically and socially and it has put me ahead of others. I am proud that I was an AUSMAT student

I have truly gained so much since joining the AUSMAT programme. I left AUSMAT graced with the Shield of Excellence award that I attribute to how AUSMAT prepares its students for university and life. The AUSMAT curriculum is designed with so much care, instilling in students important skills needed to easily adapt to university life. Some skills include consistent study pattern, presentation skills as well as independent and collaborative learning skills. Apart from studies, AUSMAT also provides students with many platforms to explore talents and improve leadership skills. AUSMAT made me a better and more well-rounded student equipped with many skills and qualities essential for future success.

I have found it comfortable adapting to life at university due to the skills gained in my time at AUSMAT. The consistency of the course standards, as well as the pace at which it was delivered is similar to that of a higher education level. Class projects, group assignments and presentations combine to make AUSMAT a holistic experience which has really instilled confidence in me wherever I go
