Education is an important part of our live. It is more than just about reading, writing or mathematics. It is one of the most important investments a person can make as it can help to open doors of opportunity for sustainable and viable economic growth. However getting a higher education after leaving high school is not a simple process as there are many colleges and universities out there. Even in Melaka, there’s a handful to choose from.
Kolej Universiti Islam Melaka is an institution of higher learning owned by the Melaka State Government. KUIM philosophy combines elements of faith, academic and vocational education. It follows the goals of the Melaka State Government that wants a generation of knowledge and skills in various fields of Islamic studies, technology, social science and the latest knowledge in addition to a high resilience to address current challenges.
KUIM offers program across a variety of disciplines including Islamic studies, business studies, Islamic banking, Islamic law, nursing, biotechnology and information technology that meets the certification of Malaysian Qualification Agency.
It is making psychology as its niche. It is the first college in Malaysia that is developing the course at the masters degree level. Partly as an intervention to reduce psychology related problems in our community lately. Are the people of Melaka really getting crazy 🙂
