AMI is currently in the process of restructuring the provision of the Hawza Programme to make it more accessible to students worldwide. The restructured programme will be organised according to four levels of difficulty. Level one will provide introductory courses that are designed for students who have no background in Arabic and Islamic Studies. The programme guides a student all the way through to level four where students receive training in the critical reading and interpretation of advanced works taught in Shiʿi seminaries. Our new online platform will provide students with more independence in designing their learning journey whilst still maintaining strong feedback from and interaction with teachers.

Admissions for the programme will open in October 2022. In the meantime, if you have any queries, please email [email protected].
