Why Egypt?

Visit the ancient city of Cairo, home to many scholars and specialist of the Arabic language and Quranic sciences…

Egypt has always been a learning hub for Arabic, Quran and Islamic sciences being where scholars in these fields and their students reside and teach.  

Areas like Madinat Nasr are buzzing with foreigners from all corners of the world in their journey of studying Arabic, Quran and Islamic studies so you'll not only meet locals, but people of other cultures who probably only share one language with you (Arabic).

Although the language of the streets is the Egyptian colloquial dialect (known as  'Aamiyyah), it is still relatively easy to pick up as it has been minimally influenced by the language of its  colonisers. Many words are derived from fusha (Modern Standard Arabic) so it is possible to understand what is being said over time.

The Islamic atmosphere, friendly people and hospitality leaves everyone with memories that  gives them a longing to return back.

What students have said...

"A strength of the Arabic programme is the group discussions and creative activities. e.g. plan a business idea and pitch it."

"The supervisor is very easy and comfortable to speak to"

The supervisor is very easy and comfortable to speak to. She made us feel welcome in Egypt and that we could come to her for help at any time which was very comforting. Upon meeting our landlord we told him all of our problems and the supervisor was very supportive of the situation and would speak on our behalf which eventually led him to agree to replace damaged stuff in the house such as mattresses and door handles.

"...strengthens my connection with the Quran"

I love the tajweed side as well as the tibyan of imam an nawawi. Reading the Tibyan with the quran course js great because it builds a sense of gratification to Allah and strengthens my connection with the Quran. The sheikh explains the Tajweed rules very easy for me to understand and remember which I appreciate a lot.
