Programme Overview

(R/010/3/0160);(MQA/FA3101)

The Foundation in Arts programme at IUMW acts as a prerequisite for students who intend to pursue their degree within the fields of arts, humanities, business, law, social sciences, and information technology. Students gain the knowledge to be able to think independently and creatively, communicate their knowledge effectively with others, operate in a constructive, ethical and professional manner, and boost their proficiency in the English language.

A solid foundation programme can give students an advantage over others who are entering higher education directly after high school. Using tertiary-style teaching with plenty of lectures, tutorials, and seminar-type classes, students are able to kick-start their undergraduate endeavours on a firm platform. With IUMW, you will find yourself academically ready and personally confident enough to succeed at your chosen undergraduate course.
