The Centre for International Languages (CIL) or Pusat Bahasa Antarabangsa, was formerly known as the Department of International Languages (DIL). Established on March 1, 2013, the Centre focuses on providing students and staff of Universiti Malaysia Perlis, and the community within its vicinity, with great opportunities to learn languages.
CIL currently provides language courses which are a requirement for students enrolled in all UniMAP programmes, at both diploma and undergraduate degree levels. It caters to the needs of the ever-growing number of students who seek to be proficient not only in Bahasa Melayu and English, but also in a third language of their choice. Apart from Bahasa Melayu and English, other languages offered at CIL are Arabic, German, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, and Thai.
