Applications for the Academic Arabic Program Closed

The Academic Arabic Program at Usul Academy is a rigorous 1-year pure language program consisting of: three 11-week terms of virtual learning from September to July and an 8-week Summer Intensive in Istanbul during July and August. 

Students who apply directly to the Academic Arabic program using the form below will be enrolled as non-matriculated students of Usul Academy. This means that if they wish to continue into the Foundations year of the Honors Program, they will have to re-apply to the program.

Otherwise, students who apply directly to the Honors Program will be enrolled into 1 year of Academic Arabic should they need it, and then will continue into the Foundations year of Islamic Studies without having to re-apply.

Below are the documents needed to apply for the  Academic Arabic Program:

  1. Your most recent transcript (student copies are accepted).
  2. Statement of Purpose. Please answer the following questions in your Statement of Purpose: 1) What is your purpose in learning Arabic? 2) What do you hope to attain after graduating from the Academic Arabic Program at Usul Academy? 3) Why do you think this is the right program for you? 4) How do you plan to manage your time to study with Usul Academy?
  3. Optional: supporting documents such as an Arabic language certificate.

Students who are shortlisted will be invited for an interview. If they are accepted, students will sit for a short proficiency exam and will be placed at an appropriate class level. We offer a range of levels for students with different backgrounds in Arabic. If you don’t know the alphabet, or if you are at an intermediate level, you can still apply to the program.
