Centre for Foundation Studies established in July 1985, Since then, it has undergone a lot of developments in order to transform IIUM into a garden of knowledge. Its infrastructure has been upgraded without neglecting the advancement of academic competitiveness in the ever-challenging IT-dominated educational sector

With approximately 8000 students every semester, the Centre for Foundation Studies is becoming a highly sought after place especially for SPM holders seeking to pursue their studies at institutions of higher learning. The number of applicants is expected to increase every year. Given this scenario, promotion plays a significant role in recruiting “the cream of the crop” from among the best candidates at every enrolment and introducing IIUM as a centre of excellence in the field of education. So far, IIUM has adopted several methods in promoting the Centre such as distributing pamphlets, handing out information to the public, briefings and conducting exhibitions with central agencies such as the Ministry of Higher Education
