CIMP student

Canadian International Matriculation Programme (CIMP) is a programme that taught me how to balance my academic and extra-curricular activities to be a more accomplished individual. The programme has given me countless opportunities to realise my full potential and pursue my passions. I will certainly carry the experiences and vast knowledge I have gained through my time at CIMP with me in the future.

CIMP Alumni

It all started back in 2009 where Canadian International Matriculation Programme (CIMP) had nurtured my passion in photography. I’m eternally grateful that all of my lecturers were supportive of my dreams. The exceptional academic and extra-curricular activities experience that I have learnt from CIMP have provided me with a strong foundation to pursue my ambition. If it was not for CIMP, I believe my dream will be just a dream.

Karen Lum

Parent of Jasmine Koh, CIMP Alumna.
Awarded with Diether H. Haenicke Full Scholarship to pursue BSc in Applied Mathematics at Western Michigan University, United States.

Choosing the Canadian International Matriculation Programme (CIMP) at Sunway College was one of the best decisions made as a family. Jasmine has always done well in school but being in CIMP allowed her to excel and live out her potential beyond just the classrooms. With the extra-curricular activities as well as the holistic learning structure imbedded in the CIMP programme, she was able to truly facilitate every facet that we believe makes for wholesome learning.
