The International Medical University (IMU) has recognised that there are many Malaysian students who aspire to be a health sciences professional. For various reasons, some of these students are not able to achieve their life-long ambition, including those students whose families do not have the financial resources to support them for entry into an international institution like the IMU.
The following scholarships are now open for application Entry 2009/2010.
