IPOH, Perak state, Malaysia March 13 (NNN-Bernama) -- Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI) is the first public university in this country to implement the Ulul Albab programme for new students enrolled in bachelor’s degree programmes at the university.

UPSI, in a statement, said the university’s board of directors at its meeting, had approved the setting up of the UPSI Ulul Albab Centre last December.

"Entrusted to lead the centre as its first director is Wan Ahmad Zakry Wan Kamaruddin who has 20 years of experience in managing the Ulul Albab module.

"The three main components or thrusts of the programme are Quranic teachings, encyclopaedic knowledge, and power of reasoning. Prior to this, the Ulul Albab module had only been implemented in a number of schools across the country and overseen by the Education Ministry,” it said.

Through the three main components, UPSI had made some minor modifications to the module to suit tertiary studies.

"Through the programme, the centre acts as a supporting body to the university in providing training, courses, modules, research and activities for undergraduates based on the Ulul Albab module.

"UPSI aspires to produce students with added value, and who are holistic, wholesome and balanced based on the Ulul Albab concept, so as to pursue positive personal goals, and be resilient and able to compete at the global level,” the university added in the statement.
