Hear from our students

Find out from our students who are our best ambassadors to share about their experience studying at this University.

I managed to attend weekend classes and complete the coursework module before the Covid-19 pandemic began. To me, attending physical classes allows for better interaction, not only between the students and the lecturer, but also between the students as well. One of the advantage of the programme is that students can perform their research activities at the convenience of their workplace. As a working adult, I find this very convenient and thoughtful.

In this Chinese Medicine (CM) programme, IMU emphasises evidence-based practice and provides a great foundation in both western medical sciences and Chinese medicine. Problem-based learning approach and interactive lectures play a role in honing my skills and improving my confidence. My clinical skills were greatly developed during the clinical attachment provided by IMU in the final year of the course. Clinical internship at IMU’s CM clinic played a significant role as I was able to consult real patients and prescribe them with the correct treatment.

After working in a fast-paced environment for 6 months, I noticed that the pharmacy programme structure at IMU was designed in a way to allow us students to gain the essential knowledge and skills needed to be a future pharmacist. In Semesters 4 and 8 of the pharmacy programme, Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) sessions has definitely trained me to think on my feet and come up with a structured and composed answer in a short period of time. With the ongoing pandemic, there has been a surge of patients at the hospital, and this requires me to work effectively and efficiently, in which IMU has trained me for.

It’s been a wonderful learning journey for me. The curriculum emphasises on the essentials of implant dentistry, evidence-based dentistry, precise treatment planning as well as communication skills to explain implant treatment’s risks in order to create healthy expectations amongst patients. This course has certainly instilled confidence in me as I develop my implant practice and apply the knowledge – I have truly gained from the supportive learning environment at IMU.

Dr Lim Zi Wei

IMU Implant Dentistry Alumna

IMU provided clinical training from my third year onwards which exposed me to real-life clinical situations. Cases encountered in the ward challenged us to apply structured, textbook theories differently. This made the profession intellectually challenging, requiring us to not only keep up with evidence-based medicine, but also the latest and greatest treatment and development in this field. I spent my last posting in Hospital Enche Besar Hajjah Khalsom (HEBHK), Kluang, Johor. It has helpedme develop my confidence caringfor patients and acquire the skills that are needed as a houseman.

Having completed my FIS, I realised that my command of English has improved tremendously. Modules such as English for Healthcare Professional (EHP) and Critical Thinking Skills prepared us with the level of English that is needed to complete assessments. Cross-Boundary Studies also helped me to improve social skills, teamworking skills as well as communication skills. Apart from academics, IMU offers many clubs and activities that helps me connect with other students from various courses. This makes my university experience more interesting as I get to hear from other students what their course is like and see if a particular course is suitable for me.
