FiS in IMU has been a life changing experience. It helped me in my transition from high school to university, and it gave me an opportunity to adapt, with the help of close friends from FiS. IMU has given me a platform to succeed in the future.

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.
