Last Updated 12th January 2021
We refer to the recent announcement by the Prime Minister on the enforcement of the Movement Control Order (MCO) in several states in Malaysia, including the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur.
IUMW is directly affected by the MCO, therefore the campus will be closed from 13th January - 26th January 2021. Until otherwise advised, we will continue with online learning and assessments, with any face to face activities at this point not possible.
Student support services will also primarily be delivered online; with stricter movement control, there will be limited staff at the office to attend to matters that require physical support. This means there may be delays over certain matters, although we will try our best to accommodate all requests promptly.Covid 19 Updates - International Students Frequently Asked Questions

Teaching and Learning
The centre/faculties have made arrangements for final assessments to accommodate the current situation. We believe that the CMCO should not have a detrimental effect on students’ studies and progression hence, we are looking at every possible way to provide ample assistance. Extension to deadlines have been granted and lecturers are available for consultation via email or video call.

Upon consultation with our UK partner university, the University of Wales Trinity Saint David, the January 2021 semester for the Mobility is open for students. The Heads and Programme Coordinators will communicate with students on mobility preparation. Students are also to be reminded of the eventualities of a second/third wave and the responsibility of travel during this time. There are risks involved and the uncertainties on travel restrictions are to be considered.
The Education Malaysia has released a new Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for international students planning to travel to Malaysia. The information is available on their website and is subject to change depending on the progress of the situation. It is important that you check with the Malaysian Embassy in your country, your government regulations, and airline requirements before making any travel plan to Malaysia. For international students, please refer to the International Student Officers (ISO), Mr Nizam and Mr Khusairi at [email protected], if you need any assistance.
Health & Safety
We encourage everyone to continue to adhere to all preventive and general hygiene measures by following the guidelines set by professional and regulatory agencies. Our priority is the health and safety of our students, staff, and the wider community. We will continue to work closely with authorities and keep our stakeholders informed of any changes as the situation continues to evolve.
Thank you, and stay safe.
