The Foundation in Science programme has really prepped me well to take on different sets of challenges not just academically, but also physically, mentally, and emotionally. The major thing that I have learned from FIS is perseverance. Although it’s a pre-University programme, it felt very much like university. The programme is designed for us to inculcate continuous learning and development not just for exams, but for life. . Over time I learned to appreciate the programme even more and enjoy every moment of it, keeping my goal in mind I have to persevere through everything. 

FiS prepared me not only to become a medical student but as a holistic individual. Although self-directed learning was implemented slowly, we had good guidance from the lecturers who were really helpful. I personally feel that it was not all work because we did have fun especially during the Cross Boundary Studies. Furthermore the module promoted critical thinking skills. These projects served as a platform for us to learn all the qualities that a team player and a physician should have; such as punctuality, responsibility, trustworthiness and commitment.

I believe that FiS programme has moulded me into a self-directed learner which is very important for undergraduate studies. I feel that the curriculum in IMU FiS differs from other Pre-University programme in the way it is structured; it allows better comprehension of the first year of undergraduate study. I think that the biggest driving factor is the mentor-mentee programme because my mentor knows my strength and weakness. From there, mentor was able to provide advice and harvest my inner potentials.
