  1. Assalaamu alaykum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh. BaarakAllaahu feek. With regards to the requirements, are you aware of what the university means by ‘must be a full time student?’

      • Assalamu alaikum, please I need admission for masters degree programs in Arabic language at any Saudi Arabia universities together with scholarship. what are the procedure . Help in Allah subhanahu wa Ta’ala’s sake.

  2. Do you know of any distant learning courses (i.e. over internet international) for Arabic from such an institute and if you have contact with the heads etc, please could you make such a suggestion? It isn’t viable for most of us to travel to KSA full time to study as much as we would love to live in Darul Islam.

    • With respect to Brother Musa, it is unlikely that your questions will be answered here. You could call the uni, email them or write a letter or at least go on their forum. Brother Musa has much to do so please, I doubt it will get answered.
      If British citizens can study at the uni anyway, then I don’t see why not. If they cannot study, then I would doubnt it,
