A strong foun­da­tion in Sci­ence

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

IF YOU are in­ter­ested in a health care pro­fes­sion then con­sider the foun­da­tion in sci­ence (FiS) pro­gramme of­fered by the In­ter­na­tional Med­i­cal Univer­sity (IMU), Malaysia’s first and most es­tab­lished pri­vate med­i­cal and health care univer­sity with over 22 years of ded­i­cated fo­cus in health care ed­u­ca­tion.

The IMU FiS is the pre­ferred foun­da­tion for en­try into any of the univer­sity’s lo­cal de­gree pro­grammes. FiS stu­dents of­fered a place in this pro­gramme will also be given a con­di­tional of­fer into one of IMU’s lo­cal un­der­grad­u­ate pro­grammes. The pro­grammes they are of­fered will de­pend on their SPM/O-Level grades. Suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of FiS would en­able pro­gres­sion to an un­der­grad­u­ate pro­gramme in IMU, sub­ject to achiev­ing the en­try re­quire­ments and meet­ing all pre­req­ui­sites.

A one-year pro­gramme con­ducted in three semesters, the Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence has three in­takes: Jan­uary, May and Septem­ber. It will be of­fered at IMU’s main cam­pus in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur. This Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence is awarded by IMU, a univer­sity spe­cial­is­ing in medicine and health sciences pro­grammes. In line with its un­der­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate pro­grammes, the univer­sity has in­cor­po­rated the con­cept of qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion into its Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence.

This qual­ity is sys­tem­at­i­cally as­sured by means of in­ter­nal eval­u­a­tions and ex­ter­nal, in­de­pen­dent qual­ity con­trol.

One of the unique fea­tures of the Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence in IMU is the early in­te­gra­tion into the univer­sity com­mu­nity and ex­po­sure to IMU’s learn­ing method­olo­gies in a stim­u­lat­ing and con­ducive learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment. Out­side of the class­room, the foun­da­tion pro­gramme stu­dents at IMU will be in­te­grated into the univer­sity’s ev­ery­day life.

You will be in the same cam­pus as the un­der­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate stu­dents and con­trib­ute equally to the univer­sity com­mu­nity. Learn­ing is thus fully in­ter­con­nected – aca­dem­i­cally, so­cially and cul­tur­ally.

The in­ter­ac­tion with staff and stu­dents of other pro­grammes would en­able th­ese stu­dents to fully ex­plore the var­i­ous ar­eas in health care pro­fes­sions.

Another unique fea­ture of the IMU Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence is its Cross Bound­ary Stud­ies where stu­dents have the op­por­tu­nity to work in col­lab­o­ra­tive groups to ex­plore is­sues in an in­ter-dis­ci­plinary ap­proach, strate­gise and im­ple­ment changes that make a pos­i­tive im­pact. Stu­dents will be able to com­mu­ni­cate how they ap­ply their knowl­edge to solve this is­sue.

The univer­sity is of­fer­ing schol­ar­ships for Malaysian and in­ter­na­tional school leavers who in­tend to study their Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence in IMU. Th­ese stu­dents must have good re­sults in their SPM / O-Lev­els and have proven lead­er­ship qual­i­ties.

El­i­gi­ble stu­dents will be in­vited to ap­ply for th­ese schol­ar­ships through their Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence let­ter of of­fer. The value of the schol­ar­ships ranges from RM2,000 to RM6,000. The Schol­ar­ship Com­mit­tee will de­cide on the award of th­ese schol­ar­ships.
