In UNIMAS, students are responsible for their own learning under the careful guidance of their instructors. On top of their core subjects, students are given the opportunity to select complementary courses from a menu offered by different faculties of the university. Student's learning is optimised through a careful evaluation of individual course units and self-managed study for the development of the total individual.
