AIMST University is registered with the Ministry of Education, Malaysia, as a tertiary educational institute under Sections 38 and 39 of the Private Higher Educational Institutions Act of 1996. It formally began its operations on 30 October 2001, coinciding with its registration with the Department of Private Education.

Imbued with the vision of its founders, AIMST aims to be a premier private sector university in the country and region catering to the needs of local and international students in providing quality technical education at an affordable price.

Eman Ahmed Adam, Saudi Arabia

Bachelor in Business & Management, 3 Years

The first day I stepped into the gates of the university, I felt it was a magnificent place to spend the next few years of my life! During registration, I managed to meet some of the staff who were quite busy. I saw them smile but I thought they were a little strict as I could not get the room mate that I wanted! Nevertheless, they promised to make some adjustments after a day or two. My Foundation School lecturers were excellent. I really started enjoying my classes and I am learning! Thank God I have some nice friends whom I have discussions with daily and that helps a lot! There is an AIMST International Students Association which helps me to be in touch with the rest of the international students here.


Eman Ahmed Adam, Somalia

Finance and Management, 3 years

Coming to Malaysia is a whole new experience for me, and being at AIMST is one of the best experiences I have ever had. Life at AIMST is pleasant and conducive. The campus offers a unique and comfortable atmosphere, which encourages students and lecturers to interact freely. The great thing about AIMST is that, as a student, you are not restricted to one particular area of study. This is because AIMST offers a wide range of quality courses. It creates the opportunity for students to attain excellent education.

Being an international student at AIMST, it is fascinating to see how people from different background and culture are lined together in a peaceful and harmonious environment. Indeed, I have certainly made the SMARTEST choice!


Farisha, Singapore

MBBS, 5 Years

My first impression of AIMST when I walked in was, “ Waah! This place is really nice and new!” Registration Day was crowded, noisy and some people were disgruntled but not everyone can be satisfied! The people in charge were friendly, smiling and helpful. Well, that day I did not really feel homesick! My worries of horrifying roommates were really unnecessary. I got a room for three with roommates of different race and religions but we got along well.

It was as if we had known each other for years and not just hours! They were friendly, helpful and caring. The hostel was beyond my expectations- it were clean, spacious and comfortable. The seniors were friendly and helpful too. I am starting to love being here at AIMST with a new environment and new friends. This is a new beginning for me and I am looking forward to a great future.


Hussein Kassamjee, Kenya

Foundation, 3 years

I come from the scenic country of Kenya. My experience from the moment I landed at KLIA until I reached AIMST, which is located in Sungai Petani has been just awesome. The warm welcome I received on arrival at AIMST was enough to convince my conscience that I made the right choice. My educational experiences have been very exciting. The friendly nature of the locals here just makes the whole experience more enjoyable. So if you are looking for a multicultural and memorable experience, then AIMST is the venue.


M. Branavan, Sri Lanka

Malaysia is a peaceful and beautiful country. This country provides a good environment to study, and offers opportunity to choose my career. AIMST offered the chance for me to start my career in Biotechnology. I find that this is the right place to start my career. Pleasant people, the library and study area provides the ideal study environment. Hostels are furnished according to student’s requirement. AIMST provides all the facilities with very low fees. Unique study programme prepares me well to face the cutting edge nature of biotech today.


Rajiv Vijaykant Patel, United Kingdom

MBBS, 5 years

Malaysia is an exciting, vibrant, diverse and friendly place.
Any reservation I had about studying here immediately
vanished once I arrived and met the people here. I was helped
throughout everything until I had my feet on the ground, after
which I was allowed to be independent. I study with amazingly
bright, funny and kind Malaysian students. I can honestly say I
have no regrets about choosing AIMST.


Usman Aslam, Pakistan
