The Hawza has been hugely supportive in my professional efforts outside of the classroom, which I greatly appreciate. I feel the program not only supports the education of its students, but also for them to become active members of our community and society. I hold an advanced degree outside hawza and in all my education I have never felt as supported by a school as I have the Al-Mahdi Institute. I willl continue to recommend this program to others.

Al-Mahdi Institute is a place for serious attempts to learn about the most fundamental and important classical Islamic, and particularly Shi’i texts through a close and critical study, always keeping our contemporary concerns and questions in mind.
Mrs Mahdiyah Abdulhussain
The course at AMI amalgamates traditional scholarship with contemporary approach providing students with a thorough grounding in Islamic sciences as well as academic rigour required to pursue further studies. The friendly demeanour of lectures and impromptu lessons in the gardens and and AMI Chapel created a thoroughly enjoyable and unique experience.
The institute has given me the opportunity for both intellectual and spiritual development. its unique character lies in the teachers from diverse backgrounds giving the students an insight into different perspectives, and encouraging them to think outside the box.
Mr Asgar Rahmatullah
The Al-Mahdi institute gives the students a unique opportunity to partake in a rigourous study of the traditional Hawza syllabus, supplemented by critical insights from contemporary discourses in areas such as Morality, Epistemology and Hermeneutics. The small class-sizes foster detailed interactive debates, as does the Institute’s intellectually vibrant atmosphere. The quality of teaching is superb, aided by unfettered access to academic staff and excellent library resources.
