The IMU Foundation in Science gives students a proper grounding for a science-related degree, especially in the areas of medicine and health sciences.

The curriculum is designed to stimulate critical thinking and build a life-long love for science via interactive workshops, seminars, experiments or lectures by visiting professors from IMU’s renowned partner universities.

Students will not only learn the fundamental scientific principles and skillsets, they will also be motivated to explore their interests in a particular field of science to help them choose the pathway leading to their career choice.

Subject to specific entry requirement, students who successfully complete the Foundation in Science programme will be able to gain entry into IMU or other Malaysian universities as it is a MQA accredited programme.
