"The lecturers have been so dedicated, always giving me the support I needed in and out of class. We have the chance to observe the practical sessions for the degree programmes which was indeed a great initiative taken by IMU. I have met many new people, and build friendships which I know will last a lifetime. To sum it up, my experience here was priceless."

“The 1-year programme provides exposure and hands-on experience which enable me to discover my potentials and prepared me well for my undergraduate studies.”
