The UK’s first access course in Islamic education has been launched by the Centre for Education Studies at the University of Warwick.
The short course is designed to bridge the gap between traditional Islamic seminaries and modern higher education, and is especially relevant to Muslim educators, faith leaders and graduates of traditional Islamic seminaries who want to continue their professional and academic development.
The one-term course is aimed at graduates of traditional Islamic seminaries who have an interest in studying the theory and practice of education at university level.
The course was developed after listening to the needs of community-based educational practitioners. Students who successfully complete the course will be eligible to progress onto one of the Masters courses offered by the Centre for Education Studies. The course is also open to those who have an interest in exploring the Muslim faith and its diverse traditions of education.
