Students will not only learn the fundamental scientific principles and skillsets, they will also be motivated to explore their interests in a particular field of science to help them choose the pathway leading to their career choice.
Subject to specific entry requirement, students who successfully complete the Foundation in Science programme will be able to gain entry into IMU or other Malaysian universities as it is a MQA accredited programme.
The IMU Foundation in Science programme has 3 start dates across the year so you can choose the time frame that is most suitable for you.
The Foundation in Science is a 1-year programme and conducted in 3 semesters. Assessment will be in-course as well as summative. Students are taught the core academic subjects together with English language.
The Cross Boundary Studies offered will enable students to work in collaborative groups to explore an issue in a multidisciplinary approach, strategise and implement changes to have a positive impact on the issue. Students will be able to communicate how they apply their knowledge and apply it to solve the issue of concern.
Selected modules will be linked to the IMU degree programme to enable lecturers in these programmes to build linkages and introduce health science specialisations to the students.
Students will be assessed through class tests, end of semester examinations, practical work, reports, assignments, problem-based learning sessions, projects and presentations of their work.
