    I chose this university because this campus is one of the international campuses with an Islamic environment where there are still very strong Islamic values ??in it. In addition, because students here come from various countries, we can expand their friendship and social networks, especially in job opportunities. Making friends with many people from abroad is clear evidence that it will increase enthusiasm for learning and competing well. In addition, the lecturers at this university are very helpful for their children in understanding lessons easily and well.

    Course Curriculum :

    My opinion on my subject curriculum is that it is very well presented knowledge and very deep content. The meaning of this word is when students learn and teachers provide knowledge, the container in it makes children's learning become increasingly open minded and have a broad view of that subject. When the teacher asks students to make research from the subject, it is show that the lessons learned from the course for students are satisfied with what they researched and believed the students do it well and understand what the teacher's concept asks for.

    International Islamic University in Malaysia (IIUM) is well known around many countries especially in Muslim countries such as Gulf countries and whole around African continent. The Islamic Banking and Finance in this university is among the world's best. I chose this university to get a high quality education on Islamic Banking and Finance in a diverse culture. IIUM is a virtue of Garden and Knowledge. IIUM won an award in 2020 for UN Sustainability Institution of the Year.

    Course Curriculum :

    Course curriculum in this university much different than other university since IIUM is trying to collaborate Islamic Teachings with conventional education System. All courses are relevant to the field of study and the university curriculum focusing on providing Islamic views on that field of study as well.
