Full-time Hawza Programme

The Full-time Hawza Programme is taught over four years and is an intensive and modified version of the hawza programme taught in the traditional Islamic seminaries of Qom and Najaf. Students have the option to study the programme in-house at Al-Mahdi Institute, virtually on-line via Skype or virtually off-line by watching class recordings at any time and location around the world. The full-time programme is taught over two semesters per year, each 17 weeks long and classes are held on Mondays to Thursdays between 9:00am - 4:30pm (UK time). 

The tuition fees for the Full-time Hawza Programme are currently £5000.00 per year. However, the Al-Mahdi Institute strives to provide the best educational facilities to as many students as possible, thus, the tuition fees can be waived by 100% and students would only be required to pay a £150 Registration fee per semester, totaling to £300 per year. Students on the full-time hawza programme must complete a tuition-fee waiver form to apply for a tuition-fee waiver. Students will receive a Tuition-fee waiver form after via email after completing their Hawza Application form. 

Applications for the Tuition Fee waiver can be made by submitting a Tuition Fee Waiver Form to our Educational Programmes Manager on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
