Community Service Learning is a teaching method which provides opportunities for students to learn valuable academic, social, personal skills and values while fulfilling the needs of the local community. At SIDMA College Sabah, Community Service (Khidmat Masyarakat) is offered as a one-time visit to a very deprived and needy community; and is integrated with the academic curriculum. This Service Learning involves students either analysing or cleaning up a polluted river, beach, as part of their science curriculum; or cleaning up flooded houses, building or compound, repairing houses, and provides the necessary support to the community, as part of the social studies content.

SIDMA College Sabah through the dynamic leadership of its leaders; Adjunct Prof Dr Morni Hj Kambrie (Founder and Chairman) and Madam Azizah Khalid Merican (CEO) have been very consistent and determined in their effort to produce graduates who are not only proficient in Bahasa Malaysia, but also graduates who are confident and comfortable while engaging themselves in conversation using English. This is due to the simple fact that English has been widely spoken and used in Malaysia for many years, so much so that it has automatically become the second language of the country.

Although the medium of instruction at public institutions of higher learning is the national language (Bahasa Malaysia), SIDMA College uses dual languages (Bahasa Malaysia and English) as its medium of instruction, owing to the importance of English in the new knowledge economy and the Industrial Revolution 4.0. Furthermore English has been spoken widely by many Malaysians in and outside of their homes.

English Enhancement Programme (EEP), a special English Proficiency programme developed by SIDMA College Sabah, aims to help SIDMA College students who lack confidence and proficiency in using English as the language of communication, to upgrade their English basic proficiency skills in order to achieve their personal potentials and professional goals.
