Course content

The two-year language pathway is directed at students who want to engage with the Arab Middle East in a professional as well as academic way, as the intensive pathways will enable them to develop a serious competency in Arabic, and achieve an advanced professional level depending on their starting knowledge of the language.

In this two-year pathway (FT), students can combine intensive Arabic language with several disciplines (see 'Combinations' Tab), including MA Islamic Societies and Cultures, MA Near and Middle Eastern Studies, or MA Palestine Studies, making these programmes unique in Europe.

Access to the Intensive Arabic language pathway is currently available for students with

a) beginner,

b) intermediate,

c) advanced level of proficiency.

Students’ proficiency levels will be assessed through a placement test during registration week (specific dates will be provided to the applicants).

Students taking MA NME Studies as their discipline cannot choose additional Arabic language modules from the Languages list, though they are encouraged to take another Middle Eastern language like Persian, Turkish or Hebrew.

Students bear the costs of travel to and from Jordan, as well as all living expenses (including accommodation) during the period of their stay.
