USIM / Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia
Nilai Malaysia

Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) is an emerging Islamic university which is fully owned and funded by the Malaysian Government. Being the 12th Public Institution of Higher learning, it aims to spearhead knowledge and be the global reference centre for Islamic Science.

USIM adopts a balanced approach between the physical and spiritual aspects, not only in the academic programmes offered, but is also widely practised throughout the university including administration and management levels. Against this backdrop, USIM embraces a holistic approach towards the delivery of knowledge, which unites revelational sciences (Naqli knowledge) and the rational sciences (Aqli knowledge).

USIM thus offers a unique model to Islamic Higher Education setting it apart from other Islamic universities worldwide. The integration of religious sciences together with the social and physical sciences in all its programmes provides a comprehensive understanding of current global problems and offers a fresh alternative in solving them.

The education paradigm at USIM is based on the basic principle that integrating religious sciences with social and physical sciences will not only provide a more comprehensive understanding of current global challenges, but also offer a fresh alternative in approaching and solving them. This is because of the universal nature of Islamic values, and history has proven that these values can be shared by all humankind; living together harmoniously with mutual respect and tolerance. It is also an effort towards reviving the scientific and technological feats of Muslim scholars in the past and moving it forward. USIM graduates are moulded within this ethos, so that they are not only able to function as professionals in their respective disciplines effectively, but at the same time are ready to contribute and make a difference to the society.
