The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - COURSE FOCUS -

THE In­ter­na­tional Med­i­cal Univer­sity ( IMU) is hold­ing its Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence ( FiS) Info Days on March 5 at the IMU Bukit Jalil univer­sity cam­pus and March 19 at IMU’s Clin­i­cal School in Batu Pa­hat from 10am to 4pm.

FiS Info Days al­low prospec­tive stu­dents to ob­tain first­hand in­for­ma­tion on the univer­sity, meet stu­dents and staff as well as find out how the univer­sity’s FiS can lead to en­try into IMU’s un­der­grad­u­ate pro­grammes.

Prospec­tive stu­dents can also seek ad­vice and in­for­ma­tion on a va­ri­ety of is­sues such as ap­ply­ing to the univer­sity, fi­nanc­ing ( in­clud­ing fees and fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance) and ac­com­mo­da­tion.

At the FiS Info Day in Bukit Jalil, vis­i­tors will be able to at­tend a talk by the fac­ulty and a shar­ing ses­sion with a sneak pre­view into the cur­ricu­lum by IMU stu­dents.

Show­cas­ing its fa­cil­i­ties, the open day pro­vides vis­i­tors with the op­por­tu­nity to look around the univer­sity.

Through­out the day, cur­rent stu­dents will be on hand as am­bas­sadors to en­sure that vis­i­tors take ad­van­tage of the avail­able talks and tours.

Since its launch in 2014, the FiS pro­gramme in IMU has opened its doors to more than 450 stu­dents over six in­takes.

Of th­ese 450 stu­dents, 168 have grad­u­ated and 132 have suc­cess­fully en­rolled in a de­gree pro­gramme of their choice in IMU, in­clud­ing medicine, den­tistry, phar­macy and the health sci­ences.

The FiS pro­gramme aims to pre­pare stu­dents aca­dem­i­cally and holis­ti­cally for their un­der­grad­u­ate stud­ies in IMU.

IMU’s learn­ing model is grounded in its core val­ues, which en­ables stu­dents to be­come knowl­edge­able and com­pe­tent health­care pro­fes­sion­als who are crit­i­cal thinkers, re­flec­tive and proac­tive.

The aim is to cre­ate health­care grad­u­ates who are com­mit­ted to life­long learn­ing and im­bued with a sense of good cit­i­zen­ship, lead­er­ship and eth­i­cal be­hav­iour.

The FiS IMU has three in­takes ev­ery year – April, July and Septem­ber.

In­ter­ested in­di­vid­u­als can ap­ply for the FiS pro­gramme dur­ing the FiS Info Day and get a waiver of RM450.
