UniCORE (University Required Courses)


The University Required Courses (UniCORE) is a set of courses that are required to be taken by all IIUM undergraduate students.  The main objective of UniCORE is to imbue IIUM students with a solid foundation that speaks to the philosophy, vision and mission of the University.  Specifically, the objectives of the UniCORE are:


  • to deepen student's sense of purpose and meaning of life
  • to nurture students with adab
  • to develop students who are imbued with Islamic knowledge, values and ethics and able to relate with contemporary issues
  • to expand the culture of Iqra'
  • to inculcate awareness on the meanings and responsibilities as 'abid and khalifah


The UniCORE is expected to lay a well-grounded foundation through understanding the fundamentals of oneself and how the formation of noble characteristics occur from the balance of all main elements in an individual.  The result of realisation and comprehension from the essence of UniCORE produces students who know about themselves, their Creator, the Holy Qur'an as a guide in their lives, the Prophet (pbuh) who has become the source of morality and character, virtues to be implemented, and vices which should be curbed.  The foundation will nurture an Insan of adabwho realise the purpose and responsibilities of life and embrace the pursuit of knowledge.
