Stepping in with n n i i
WHILE you may have plans to fund your studies yourself by using your savings or through your family, it is worth checking for institutions that offer scholarships and other financial assistance. The best time to look for financial support would be before you start your course.
Infrastructure University Kuala Lumpur ( IUKL) understands that education is a serious investment and getting the right financial support could be a struggle for some. Its mission is to provide quality, recognised and affordable education for all.
Before you pick your course, find out how any of its six types of financial assistance can help you. More than 6,000 students have benefited from the financial assistance offered by IUKL.
IUKL scholarships are made available to students who have excelled at the elementary levels, including SPM, STPM, O- Level, A- Level, UEC, Foundation Studies and Diploma.
With a minimum of 5As in the SPM or O- Level, you are entitled to a 50% scholarship. With 8As and above, you are entitled to a full scholarship. For STPM or A- Level students, you only need a minimum CGPA of 3.00 to enjoy the 50% scholarships and 3.50 for full scholarship. Diploma and foundation graduates will need a minimum CGPA of 3.50 to be eligible for the partial scholarship and 3.75 and above for the full scholarship.

IUKL- Media Education Fund Scholarship
In addition to the IUKL Scholarship, the university also collaborates with two major media education funds, including The Star Education Fund and Sin Chew Education Fund, to provide deserving students an opportunity to pursue higher education. The scholarships provided cover multiple disciplines at the diploma and degree level. The best feature of these scholarships is that they are all bond- free.
IUKL Sports Excellence Scholarships

Tuition fee waiver
It pays to study hard at IUKL. In addition to the scholarships, the IUKL Tuition Fee Waiver Scheme is offered every semester. The scheme offers up to 60% off the semester tuition fee for students who maintain a CGPA of 3.750 and above every semester. A 30% tuition fee waiver awaits you in the coming semester if you score a CGPA of 3.50 to 3.749.
This encourages students to excel in their studies, and to reduce the financial burden of students and parents.
