Assalamualaikum wrt wbt, Salam Sejahtera and warm welcome from the Centre for Postgraduate Studies (CPS), IIUM


Welcome to the Centre for Postgraduate Studies !

The quest for quality postgraduate research-oriented academic programmes was the motivation to the establishment of the CPS on July 1, 2000. We continuously strive to promote graduate academic advancement, create conducive environment for research and publication, and integration of knowledge.

CPS strives to create an environment, which stimulates and encourages both intellectual and social exchange among postgraduate students, researchers and Kulliyyah members. CPS aims to be the centre of excellence in postgraduate studies by promoting Islamization of knowledge; developing culture of research and learning; developing students’ expertise and skills in research; and stimulating life-long learning. We are also proudly upholding the traditions of making significant contributions to the Ummah.

Currently, CPS manages over 6,000 students with about 70 % of them are international students from more than 100 countries. We confer degrees in a large variety of academic programmes at the Master's and PhD levels.

I believe that your choice to take postgraduate programme at IIUM will be of great advantage for your career and to serve the Ummah (society). Our dedicated and qualified staff member will always be your ‘Murabbi’ to make leading future researchers with values and ethics.

As a graduate student, you are expected to undertake excellent research and publish in reputable journals indexed in Scopus, ERA or WOS. You are required to work consistently to graduate on time with excellent outputs. All students are advised to know the University rules and regulations.

My heartfelt wishes to all of you and have a wonderful experience in IIUM - Garden of Virtue and Knowledge.


Thank you, wassalam
