Joint Degrees with Sunway University, Malaysia
Lancaster University has launched a joint degree programme with Sunway University College in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia).
The programme has been successfully running since January 2007, and Lancaster and Sunway University College now offer joint degrees in several subjects including psychology. On completion of the BSc (Hons) in Psychology at Sunway University College, students receive two academic scrolls; one from Sunway University College, and one from Lancaster University.
The relationship between the Psychology departments has been facilitated by student visits too. In March, Lancaster received several Sunway students and learnt about students and research activities
A further important part of the partnership between Lancaster University and Sunway University College's Department of Psychology are research collaborations, most notably in the area of developmental psychology. In November 2007, Professor Gavin Bremner attended the Sunway Academic Symposium as the keynote speaker.
