Enrolment & Admission
The academic year at JRU runs according to the Islamic Calendar: Shawwāl – Sha‘bān.
Students wishing enrolment in the ‘Ālimiyyah or Qirā‘ah course are admitted in the month of Shawwāl. Late applicants for these courses may be considered until the end of Dhul-Qa‘dāh (approximately one and a half months from commencement date). This flexibility is subject to candidate potential and capability.
Enrolment for the Tahfīz-al-Qur’ān Course takes place throughout the year, although the majority of candidates are admitted in Shawwāl and in September after the end of the school Summer break.
The Preparatory Course runs during the latter part of the academic year and admission dates vary according to demand for the course. Please contact us for further details.
After meeting the Entry Requirements and submitting an application, suitable applicants are requested to attend an assessment test and interview. They are asked various relevant questions relating to background, ambitions and commitment.
Successful applicants are sent a formal letter of acceptance within ten working days.
All new students are admitted on a two month trial basis. After successfully completing the probationary period they are given a permanent place.
Overseas applicants who cannot attend this interview must provide a letter of reference from a reputable referee. All prospective overseas students must nominate a guardian or family friend as a contact in Britain who will take responsibility should any difficulty arise during their term of study.
