Centre for Pre-University
A message from the Head of Centre
The IMU Foundation in Science programme is designed to equip both Malaysian and international students with the knowledge and skills required for undergraduate studies at the IMU and our international partner universities. This programme incorporates a holistic approach to learning and in addition to providing core university science foundation knowledge, it incorporates significant English language and professional development elements. It also provides students with an early integration into the university community that includes opportunities to interact with faculty academics and students and which incorporates full access to the IMU learning resources. Students will also gain exposure to the IMU’s learning methodologies that promote independent lifelong learning, to better prepare them for degree progression after successful completion of Foundation in Science. The IMU Foundation in Science programme is the ideal pathway for entry into IMU’s local and international partner degree programmes and is the key to a promising career pathway.
