The Diploma in Counseling program at KIAS was first offered in the June 2015/2016 session and offered
for 2 and a half years. Offering this course is as a platform to the students
interested in venturing into the field of counseling and psychology. To be a professional counselor
and have a valid registered license from the Malaysian Board of Counselors (LKM), a student is required
have at least a bachelor’s degree in Counseling or Psychology. Maka,
KIAS has created a platform to help students by offering this course at
diploma level for those who are not qualified to continue their studies at the Degree level.
It is hoped that this initiative will be able to encourage them to further their studies to the degree level to qualify
they are registered counselors recognized by the Malaysian Board of Counselors.
