Assalamualaikum and a warm welcome from the USIM ‘Alamiyyah International Centre!

It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM), or the Islamic Science University of Malaysia.  Every year the University welcomes international students from over 50 different countries around the world, all in the pursuit of the integrated knowledge of Naqli (revealed) and Aqli (acquired). We aspire for all students to gain the most from their time with us and offer a high level of support, both by staff in the International Centre and by the respective Faculties here in USIM.

USIM is a place where everyone feels welcome and everyone should utilise their potential to the fullest.  Whereas it is normal to feel the anxiety of being in an unfamiliar terrain, we humbly provide various resources on campus that can offer support should you need it, including USIM ‘Alamiyyah, or the University’s International Centre.  Whether your home is across the seas or just a few hours’ drive away, and no matter how long you will be with us at USIM, please know that we are very glad to have you here.

We are also dedicated to ensuring that USIM students themselves have the opportunities to include an international experience as part of their studies through the Outbound Student Programme.  Since we are now connected by many convenient modes of travel, global media, advanced technologies and seamless information transfer in this ‘global village’, it is important that we take advantage of the expanding multicultural environment and embrace new experiences.

We look forward to seeing you in USIM!

Director, USIM ‘Alamiyyah
