About Ebrahim College

Ebrahim College (EC) is an institute of higher Islamic learning that aspires to operate as a fully-fledged university complete with a reputable research portfolio. It began in 2003 as an Islamic Seminary and an Islamic 6th Form, which, at the core of its academic offering, combined A levels with a programme called the Islamic Sciences Programme (ISP). Now the College runs an Arabic language programme called ‘The Arabic Intensive’ that fulfils the prerequisites of its undergraduate level programme called the ‘Alimiyyah Programme’.

The aim of EC’s core academic curriculum is to produce Ulama and leaders who are competent in the Islamic sciences such as Tafsir and Hadith, and who also possess the professional skills necessary to serve, guide and lead the Muslim community. EC’s overall curriculum is designed to produce specialism and academic excellence on the one hand as well as widely promote and facilitate the study of the Islamic Sciences and elevate the standard of Islamic learning in Muslims of all ages and backgrounds.

In addition to its core function, the College fulfils its commitment to the propagation of Islamic education by the offering of part time and short courses on various Islamic topics.
