Diverse Thinking for Today's World


Welcome to Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education. Established in 2001, our aim is to bridge cultures and understanding between the Muslim and western world.

We do this by focusing on education, research, debate and scientific understanding of Islam and the role of Muslims in the 21st century.

Based in Dundee, a dynamic and growing Scottish city, we are proud to have students and staff from all around the globe. Graduates from over 30 countries have successfully completed our postgraduate degree programmes, and a great majority of them are PhDs.

We are always pleased to receive applications for our courses and programmes and will be happy to advise you whatever your requirements, so please do get in touch. Our friendly staff will be happy to help.
