IMU’s FiS Info Day opens
THE International Medical University (IMU) invites prospective students and their parents to its Foundation in Science (FiS) Info Day on Saturday, June 17 at the university’s campus in Bukit Jalil from 10am to 4pm.
FiS Info Days are the perfect opportunity for prospective students to obtain first-hand information on the university.
They can meet current students and staff to chat about how the university’s FiS can provide them an entry to IMU’s undergraduate programmes, and exciting and promising career opportunities.
Parents and students can also chat with faculty members about life in IMU and seek advice and information on a variety of issues, such as applying to the university, financing (including fees and financial assistance) and accommodation.
They can also discover about available scholarships for those with 8As or more in their SPM.
Others may even be eligible for partial scholarships; or a special bursary of 50% in total tuition fee to those who continue IMU undergraduate studies upon completion of the FiS programme.
There will also be a talk on the “FiS – The IMU Pathway to Success in Your Chosen Degree” by FiS principal lecturer and acting head Dr James Edward Walsh, plus a sharing session with FiS students and alumni.
The Info Day will also be showcasing its facilities to visitors who can look around the university. Current students will be acting “ambassadors” throughout the day, ensuring visitors take advantage of talks and tours. FiS aims to prepare students academically and holistically for their undergraduate studies in IMU.
The teaching methodology and assessment methods employed in FiS are aligned to the methodologies used in the undergraduate programmes.
Students benefit from these as it gives them early exposure and a head start to the undergraduate learning environment.
FiS is an important foundation year that aims to prepare students to be independent learners. It is the preferred foundation for entry into any of the IMU’s undergraduate degree programmes (local degrees and credit transfer options). The programme has three intakes a year, in April, July and September. These convenient start dates will enable smooth transition into the preferred degree courses that students are interested in, upon successful completion of the programme.
Visitors who apply to the programme during FiS Info Day will receive a RM450 waiver.
