Education Malaysia experts will:
Although AIU is founded by a Malaysian and is located in Malaysia, up to 80% of its students will be international, with a focus on students from Muslim minority countries. The balance will be Malaysian students irrespective of religious or ethnic backgrounds.
- AIU's requirements for entry are not targeted at academic high achievers. Instead students with reasonable academic standing, but who come from poor, disadvantaged, underprivileged or marginalized backgrounds are the ones who will be offered entry. These are students who are qualified for tertiary education, but are denied places either because of stringent academic requirements, or because they cannot afford the costs involved.
- All students of AIU are required to undertake planned Welfare and Service activities throughout their period of study. The objective is to inculcate in them the passion to Serve and Contribute.
- AIU staff, both academic and administrative will also be international in composition. They will be not only qualified and experienced, but equally if not more important, they must subscribe and practice the Philosophy, Aims and Objectives of the University.
- The curriculum will not be parochial but will be based on universal principles and practices which will be relevant for the different societies from where the students come from.
