CIMP is preparing for our next semester. The new semester will run from July until December and we will have September Intake as well. We are committed to offering face-to-face classes for all of our subjects. Due to COVID-19 regulations, we have worked with Sunway College Facilities Department to make sure that physical distancing protocols will be followed. Rest assured that all of our students and staff will be safe as they learn in all of our classrooms, labs and common areas.

CIMP will also be offering fully-online classes for 12 of our subjects. It is very important for us that we provide the opportunity for all of our new and returning students who may be unable to travel to Malaysia to start or continue their pre-university studies with us. Students who choose our online classes will need secure and reliable internet access and reliable devices, preferably laptop or desktop computers. Our teachers have developed, and continue to develop, new and exciting skills and strategies to help our students receive the full curriculum and to prepare them for university entrance.

The Sunway College Marketing and International Office staff are able to help new and returning students with whatever they need to know as we prepare for our new semester and we are very excited to embark on this new and engaging journey.

About CIMP


The Canadian International Matriculation Programme (CIMP) is a Year 12 secondary school curriculum delivered according to the requirements of the Ontario (Canada) Ministry of Education.  CIMP graduates earn the highly regarded Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) which is globally accepted as an entry into universities.

CIMP is a rigorous programme with high academic standards.  The day-to-day classroom progression centres on the expansion, transmission and application of knowledge, skills and attitudes from the Canadian curriculum.  Emphasis on transferable skills such as critical thinking, innovation and creativity, communication, and collaboration provides students with a strong foundation for success in tertiary education and future career.  Opportunities to become involved in leadership activities, and to participate in extracurricular activities develop students in CIMP into socially responsible and globally conscious citizens in their communities.

The uniqueness of CIMP emerges in the method of assessment and evaluation in the context of an authentic student-centred learning environment.  CIMP practices continuous assessment rather than on a final examination.  Students are challenged on daily class work throughout the semester accounting for 70% of their final grade, and 30% is determined by the performance of their final examination.  This assessment and evaluation method places a much greater emphasis on student involvement in the teaching and learning process throughout the semester at CIMP.  With day-to-day preparedness, commitment and achievement; our students can and do reach their academic goals.

CIMP students are expected to become active and engaged learners.  With their daily commitment and level of involvement in class, students will become creative thinkers, developing the powers of observation, imagination, reasoning, as well as gaining confidence as effective communicators.

On behalf of all of our dedicated teachers, administration and support staff at CIMP, welcome to our website. The Canadian International Matriculation Programme (CIMP) is the largest accredited Canadian Pre-U programme outside of Canada that offers the highly respected Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD). We currently have an enrolment of 719 students, 55% from Malaysia and 45% from 49 countries around the world. We are a true international learning community.

The majority of our teaching staff have been trained in Canada and are certified by the Ontario College of Teachers.

Since beginning in 1990, more than 7500 graduates have gone on to study at over 150 private and public universities throughout the world. Post- graduation, CIMP alumni are pursuing careers in Business, Finance, Engineering, Technology Health Care and Public Relations.

Our goal is to encourage intellectual curiosity, foster creativity and inspire the pursuit of excellence. Each day we are “learning to learn” actively engaged and continuously preparing ourselves to excel at the next set of opportunities and challenges.

I encourage you to visit and experience CIMP. Talk to students in our Student Hub, audit classes, immerse yourself in the energy on campus and you will begin to appreciate a vibrant learning community preparing students to become todays leaders.

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.

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.

Eric Chiang Hinn Yuen, CIMP Alumni

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.
