Compulsory Subjects (For Malaysian Students Only)
The Private College Act (Section 34(3) Act IPTA 1997) under the Malaysian Education policy requires students to attend a course of instruction in Bahasa Kebangsaan (National Language), Pengajian Agama/Moral (Moral and Religious Studies) and Pengajian Malaysia (Malaysian Cultural Studies). At the end of the courses, Malaysian students are required to sit for the examinations. Students must pass all the papers during their time at the IMU.
For the medicine and dentistry programmes, in addition to the academic qualifications, IMU requires all candidates to attend an oral interview, which is designed to provide us with further insight about the candidates, before a final decision of the selection is made.
Interviewers will be looking for evidence that you meet our various qualitative admission criteria. These include your interests and enthusiasm in the profession you have chosen, your motivation, communication skills and other traits related to the profession.
While knowledge of medicine or dentistry will not be assessed during the interview, the interview panel will attempt to gauge your interest in current issues, your stand on “controversial” issues as well as how do you respond in difficult situations.
You are required to bring all your original documents and certificates and dress formally to register at the Admissions Department at least an hour before the scheduled interview time.
