Dr. Mohd Zamro Muda as Vice Dean of Prasiswazah Faculty of Islamic Studies UKM said that his party is ready to accept exchange students from FH UB. IUP FH UB students are invited to choose the courses offered each semester.

Based on the results of the discussion, it was agreed that IUP FH curriculum would contain courses that could be taken by IUP students who studied for at least one semester at a Malaysian university. IUP students are required to choose a university abroad that has collaborated with FH UB, to take part in learning for at least one semester.

UKM, UiTM and USIM are among the partner universities that students can choose. Other foreign universities have also prepared collaborations to accept IUP students, including universities in Australia, Hong Kong, Korea and Europe.

IUP is a superior program to increase the number of foreign students studying at FH UB, as well as increasing the competency of all IUP students so that they have the skills needed by the international job market.

In the future, IUP is expected to collaborate with QS 100 universities not only sending students but also in the form of job supervisors, external examiners and adjunct professors as a form of FHUB’s goal of getting QS 100 by subject.
