If you are reading this article, then you are already planning for a step towards a postgraduate degree. Let me guess who you are, A lawyer? An engineer? A banker? A Doctor? Or probably you are seeking for a suitable job. Whether you are a job seeker or an employee, you feel that you need more skills to fit yourself for the global industry.
Yes, you see it right; the word is "GLOBAL"
You should know that you are not alone. Most of the students pursue a postgraduate/ Master degree for the following reasons:
So, yes, you will have likeminded people around you during the program, and it will be an excellent opportunity for you to build your network globally while studying at International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM). The population of IIUM is approximately 30000 with more than 120 national backgrounds.
Now, Why IIUM? The question may come to your mind. Am I right? Well, here are some of the facts to help you decide to join us in IIUM:
The International Islamic University Malaysia was founded in 1983 in Malaysia and headquartered at a 700-acre (2.8 km²) campus at Gombak, Selangor, and has six other campuses. Our three other campuses are in Kuantan, with the Centre for Foundation Studies situated in Gambang, a medical-centric campus located at Bandar Indera Makhota and a clinical campus near Tengku Ampuan Afzan Hospital. Two city campuses are located at Persiaran Duta and Jalan Damansara, Kuala Lumpur, and another campus is located at Bandar Universiti Pagoh, Johor.
IIUM Student residence is called 'Mahallah', derived from Arabic, it refers to rooms or hostels provided on campus by the university for their students from the first half of your studies until you graduate from IIUM.
Islamization as university's mission
With its mission to integrate Islamic Revealed knowledge with the secular Western civilization, IIUM promotes the Islamisation of studies in all the course offered.
IIUM is also known as an international university. Students from abroad come to Malaysia to pursue their first degree, master's, and PhD. Enjoy the international atmosphere and friendship while you study in IIUM.
English and Arabic are the two main mediums of instruction in the university. There are many language enhancement programmes offered to help students with their proficiency and mastery of the languages.
There are various facilities that you can enjoy in the university campus that includes a computer lab with internet access, a massive and state-of-the-art library, a centrally located mosque, a Musolla (prayer room) in every faculty building, a variety of cafes serving both local and international food, and many interesting spots for students to chill after a long day of classes. Wi-Fi signal is also provided around the campus. The university also offers Student Hall bus services straight to your Faculty. Printing shops can be found everywhere in campus if you require photocopying and printing services.
Student's clubs and societies
Each faculty hosts a variety of organizations and groups for students. Societies and clubs provide activities like camping, hiking, school student support group, volunteerism for needy communities, and even programs that create a bond between campus students and the community.
When you walk through the university campus, you can find a few signage for people with disabilities, or a specific road allowing them to pass through. IIUM gains its rights and excellent assistance from a program called Disability Support Unit (DSU) to serve the needs of all disabled students. It is the university's effort to ensure equal opportunities for students with disabilities in accessing the comprehensive teaching and learning environment.
Ultimately, choosing a university for your postgraduate level of education in your life is essential as its environment and nature would affect the way you live your life after graduation.
Let me take you to the course we offer at affordable tuition fees. Yes, our tuition fees are way more affordable than European and American Postgraduate degree programs. You may be asking …what about the quality and reputation and ranking of IIUM are they at par with European and American universities?
The answer is Yes and if you take a closer look:
Okay, so what's the entry requirement? Well, it depends on the program you choose.
At IIUM, we have designed postgraduate programs based on the industrial needs. They are developed to equip the students with all the transferable skills in their personal and professional goals.

Via versatile degree frameworks, IIUM students often profit from the numbers and variety of course offerings, leading experts and educators, business connections, and various incentives for scholarships.
