Virtual Mobility Programme

The global Covid 19 pandemic has radically reshaped our lives and provides unprecedented disruption to various industries including education. It is evident that we can no longer operate in the same way as it was before, that the pandemic necessitates changes in our approach to education. And today, virtual learning as opposed to face-to-face teaching and learning has never been more important and more widely used around the world.

Given this opening of opportunities for online remote learning, IIUM Academy opens the door for students in any university to join IIUM's Virtual Mobility Programme (VMP) which will commence in October 2021. Through this programme, interested students may enrol in selected courses (subjects) at IIUM. This initiative demonstrates an innovation in mobility programme aimed at giving students learning experience at IIUM and a taste of cultural diversity without being physically present. The programme will also encourage students to share knowledge and relate their cultural experiences into the relevant fields as they virtually make the leap towards engaging with other students, thus improve their learning outcomes.
