The University adopts the semester system. The academic year is divided into two (2) normal semesters, namely Semester I and Semester II, and a short semester at the end of Semester II. Thus, intake for new undergraduate students is normally made during the semester I of an academic year. The minimum duration of the programs is 4 years (8 semesters). The programs are conducted based on lectures, tutorials and practical sessions.

Students are obliged to take compulsory University General Subjects that are Ethnic Relation, Islamic and Asian Civilization, Management, English Language and Co-curriculum.
