The Muslim College aims to offer a programme of study that is of an academic standard comparable to that of other institutions of higher education in the west, and to ensure that the programme of study is coherent and provides a stage-related learning experience for all. The Muslim College is different from most other institutions offering Islamic studies because it employs both Western and traditional scholarship in the medium of English. We do not favour or subscribe to any particular denomination of Islam. We allow for equality of the sexes, where men and woman are taught together and are allowed to fully participate in lectures. We also allow people of all (or no) faiths to come and study at our establishment. Our student’s submission are sent to external examiners and moderated by lecturers at a number of British universities.
The Muslim College envisages to provide continued excellence in Islamic academia and thus regularly reviews and develops its programmes. It presently offers the M.A. in Islamic Studies, PhDs, Imamship courses, specifically designed short-courses for authorities across the globe, conferences and seminars. In addition to the taught courses on the programme, the Muslim College also houses key services to the Muslim community not only in the United Kingdom, but also across the globe. The Mosques and Imams National Advisory Board and the Muslim Law Shariah Council are two such bodies through which we reach the wider community.
Our underlying ethos at the college is to imbibe a progressive approach to religion in our students. This is borne out by graduates who have gone on to positions of influence and leadership. Our graduates have positively engaged with and provided services for various communities across the globe.
