UK’s first access course in Islamic Education launched at Warwick

The UK’s first access course in Islamic Education has been launched by the Centre for Education Studies at the University of Warwick. The short course is designed to bridge the gap between traditional Islamic seminaries and modern higher education, and is especially relevant to Muslim educators, faith leaders and graduates of traditional Islamic seminaries who want to continue their professional and academic development.

The one-term course is aimed at graduates of traditional Islamic seminaries who have an interest in studying the theory and practice of education at university level. The course was developed after listening to the needs of community-based educational practitioners. Students who successfully complete the course will be eligible to progress onto one of the Masters courses offered by the Centre for Education Studies. The course is also open to those who have an interest in exploring the Muslim faith and its diverse traditions of education.

There are more than 25 traditional Islamic Seminaries in the UK, teaching a program broadly equivalent to a full-time undergraduate degree. However, seminary graduates face significant barriers to higher education and employment because the education they have received in the seminary system is not generally recognized in the mainstream UK education system.

Successful completion enables progression onto the Islamic Education pathway in MA in Religions, Society and Education as well as other MA programmed offered at the CES. Applications are now open for the UK’s first access course in Islamic Education.
