    Why does your centre exist within MUCM?

    The Centre for Foundation and General Studies at MUCM is a specially created facility that houses and prepares students for admission to degree programmes at MUCM, as well as a few other general studies courses. The early integration programme at Foundation in Science program of CFGS is designed to ensure smooth sailing of students during their MBBS, BDS, and allied health years.

    What Do You Do?

    CFGS conducts the Foundation in Science (FIS) program which fulfills the entry requirements for the degree programs at MUCM and other tertiary institutions.

    Apart from providing the pre-university programme, it also acts as a centre for acquiring lifelong skills in various fields. It conducts short courses to upskill working adults and improve their careers and lives. CFGS also tries to give school leavers exposure to university life, thus helping them make decisions about what suits them best.

    CFGS coordinates the MPU unit, which caters to MPU subjects across all the degree programmes at MUCM.
