Make sure you check on the university, college or conservatoire website for any updates about course changes as a result of COVID-19.

Course summary

In this unique course, students gain a deep understanding of Islam within a modern framework of study leading to the award of a recognised degree. The course is consistent with the subjects taught in traditional centres of Hawza studies, such as Qum and Najaf, and incorporates some additional modules that suit the needs of Muslims living in the West. Since the successful study of Islamic sciences requires knowledge of the Arabic language, students are required to know Arabic before starting their BA course. For this purpose, students would be required to take the one year Cert HE in Qur’anic Arabic unless they can pass the Arabic Language test. This intensive course will equip students with the necessary skills required to access primary Arabic sources in order to perform their independent reading and research.
