The IMU Foundation in Science (FiS) is the preferred foundation for entry into any of the IMU’s local undergraduate degree programmes. It provides the academic preparation required for admission into a science-related degree and equips students with strong fundamental knowledge and skills to pursue their studies in the areas of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and health sciences.
Studying the Foundation in Science in IMU exposes students to IMU’s learning methodologies in a stimulating and conducive learning environment.

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.
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.
