Here are the details for Umm al Quraa.:)

In the Name of Allaah, the All-Merciful, the Ever-Merciful...


OVERVIEW UPDATED 1425-8-11

Located in the most virtuous of cities, Umm al-Qura University in Makkah offers a chance for non-Arabic speakers, male or female, to learn Arabic within a two-year intensive program. Upon completing the initial studies in the Arabic Language Institute with excellent grades (80% average or higher), the student earns the opportunity to take an entrance exam apply to study in one of the colleges of Umm Al-Qura University. If students do not qualify, the 'Arabic Institute provides a chance for them to broaden their studies in 'Arabic, specializing in teaching 'Arabic with a two-year and four-year program.



REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION UPDATED 1425-8-11

To be considered for admission at Umm al-Qura University, applicants should be 25 years old or younger with a high school diploma and generally good grades (80% or higher). Their application must include photographs, copies of passport, birth and health certificates, high school transcripts and a copy of the diploma, all verified by the Saudi Embassy of their country. Also - letters of recommendation from known Islamic organizations or personalities, a 75-word essay about their goals for studying Arabic, and female applicants must present proof of a male family member currently living in Makkah, if they are not applying along with their spouse or brother.

New Condition: All applicants to Umm al-Qura University's Arabic Program must first be approved by their own country's "Ministry of Education". Enquiries about this should be directed to the Saudi Embassy of the applicant's country. Applications are no longer being accepted at the university itself in Makkah. All applicants must apply through the Saudi Embassy in their country. Additionally, further conditions may apply as stipulated by the Saudi Embassy in the applicant's country. So for the most accurate and up-to-date information about what is required for one's application, applicants should contact the nearest Saudi Embassy in their country.

UPDATE: It seems most applicants from many countries are being exempted from this, at least for the submission of the application. Applications are being submitted once again at the university for all countries. [1427-01-02]



ESTIMATED COSTS AND LIVING EXPENSES

Tuition is free. The school provides the students with a monthly salary of SR 840 (about $225), a round-trip plane ticket yearly, discounted meals, and free housing (for single students only). A single student should bring at least $500 initially to cover expenses until the salary starts to come (it takes a few months usually). After that, the monthly salary is sufficient for single students living in the dormitory. Married students who have children should bring much more money initially and expect their living expenses to be $6,000 to $12,000 yearly, depending on their standard of living, number of children, etc.



TIPS FROM FORMER OR CURRENT STUDENTS

"The school reviews applications in the winter between semesters. Usually the selected students would begin their studies in the Spring semester of the following year. They usually can only accept two or three new American and British students each year, so don't depend greatly on being accepted. What I mean is - Submit your application and continue on with your life."



APPLICATION UPDATED 1425-8-11

We now have an application to Umm Al-Qura right here on bakkah.net! You may print it, fill it out, and get in touch with the Saudi Embassy of your country to make sure you have all the requirements needed.

According to what a person who knows these universities well has said, Imaam Muhammad Uni and Umm al Qura are more highly recommended as compared to Madeenah Uni. Their teaching methods differ, and they are more higher educational and comprehensive. Madeenah Uni is a wonderful uni too mashaAllah and dedicated only to Islamic studies and more aimed at foreign students, but the others are more highly recommended when it comes to the level of education. And their Saudi students outnumber the foreign if I remember correctly, and that applies to their Islamic departments as well. And those two also accept female students, while Madeenah only accepts males. There are other colleges in Madeenah for females to learn the deen, but I'm unsure of whether foreigners are accepted, but quite possibly they are. It's also not so so so hard for foreigners to get acceptance at Madeenah Uni, provided the paperwork is complete and you meet their requirements. But if your intent is to study hard and strive the right path, then wherever you go, your efforts will pay off inshaAllah.

Allahu 'alam.

You can apply to learn Arabic within a two-year intensive program. If you pass the exams at the end of that course, you can take an entrance exam for one of the colleges of Umm-ul-Quraa. If you dont pass the exam for the college, you can broaden your studies in Arabic, specializing in teaching Arabic with a two-year and four-year program. Tuition is free.
