Formerly known as the Centre for Languages (CFL), CELPAD now offers various courses such as English Language, Quranic Language, Bahasa Melayu, Tilawah Al-Quran, Mandarin Language and Japanese Language. We provide our services to the IIUM community by offering university required language courses (UNICORE) and elective language courses for IIUM undergraduate and postgraduate students. CELPAD consists of four main divisions, which are the English Language Division, Quranic Language Division, Bahasa Melayu Division and Tilawah Division. In addition, CELPAD also has IfLA that offers an array of tailor-made courses, programs and services for the public.
