About Ebrahim College

Ebrahim College was established in 2003 as a Darul Uloom style seminary appropriate for the modern world. The aim was to benefit from the rigour and credibility of the traditional Darul Uloom and, where it was deemed beneficial, merge it with the best in modern curriculum development, pedagogy, technology and research.

The work of the College in higher education and research includes:

The ‘Alimiyyah Programme - a four-year, contextualised, multi-disciplinary, undergraduate level programme in Arabic, Shari’ah, Theology, and various aspects of the humanities

The Dawrah al-Hadith Programme - a one-year masters level programme with an intense focus on Hadith according to the seminary tradition, starting from September 2016

A postgraduate development programme for seminary graduates and imams

A research centre - the Centre for Islamic Research and Education.

The College also runs between 60 and 70 courses a term for adults of all ages covering all aspects of Islam and Muslim life. These courses run on-campus, online, and in the form of outreach based weekend intensives.
