Research-Based Master of Health Sciences and Doctor of Philosophy Programme


The undergraduate programmes of the Kulliyyah of Allied Health Sciences commenced in 2004 and with the increase in the number of academic staff in specific niche areas, the Kulliyyah has able to offer postgraduate degree programmes starting 2007. At present, there are lecturers with PhD or professional postgraduate qualifications on board and each has the experience and capability of supervising postgraduate students. Supervision could also be shared with other appropriate supervisors from other Kulliyyahs at the IIUM Kuantan Campus through the appointment of co-supervisors.

Being one of the youngest faculties of the University, the Kulliyyah is located in the new Kulliyyah of Allied Health Sciences building at the Bandar Indera Mahkota of Kuantan, Pahang. Adequate research facilities, teaching classes and laboratories are available for general and specific use including up-to-date equipments to accommodate postgraduate learning needs. Other than strengthening Kulliyyah research efforts, this will also cater for the students who have great passion and determination to do research work and participate in intellectual activities.  Kulliyyah targets would be personnel who are engaged in research and development in industries and research institutes as well as bachelor degree holders with good academic background.

The focus of study leading towards a Masters of Health Sciences and Doctor of Philosophy field will be research based with some input of courses such as Research Methodology and Islamic Values as indicated in the tables below.
