Admission and registration

  1. The student should be holder of a secondary school qualification (or its equivalent in the Arab countries), if it is not the case, then the University organises courses related to such qualification which ends up with a general exam in language, culture, media, tv box reviews and the like.
  2. Meeting the pre-requisites of the preliminary admission.
  3. Selecting the courses he is entitled to follow and the qualification he would like to have (it is compulsory to complete the secondary school program so as to take part in the University education courses, and to have a BA  to register in a MA degree program, and to have an MA  to register in a PhD program).
  4. The students might be transferred from one Arabic University to another provided they select the same course or a course similar to it.
  5. In some cases it is possible to hold examinations in Arabic language, in Tamazight or in any other foreign language before the final admission (of certain students) is announced.Highly qualified teachers will monitor such examinations.
  6. The student should send his application form to the University to which his current degree is attached and in which he selects the course he would like to follow. Then the University will send him a primary admission, specifying the period of time in which he is supposed to pay the first part of his tuition fees. The University will then send him a final admission, whereby it specifies the suitable course for the student. The latter will equally receive the literature (bibliography) he needs for his studies. And later on, a teacher will be appointed in order to supervise his studies.

Tuition Fees

The University charges fees to cover the courses and the programs it offers. These will secure its existence since it does receive no external financial support from any institution. The University relies indeed on the voluntary work of some teachers, and on the tuition fees that the students are supposed to pay in order to cover the costs related to the rent and the salaries of the staff.

Nevertheless, the University has taken into account the financial situation of Muslim and Arab students. Thus, it has fixed the tuition fees in conformity with their abilities. In the meantime, it has chosen to reduce the cost of sending the literature by opting for the electronic option (compact discs: CDs) and other modern technique.

Likewise, the students will be exempted this year from the fees related to the administration work. In what follows, we present some formalities related to the tuition fees:

  1. The tuition fees might be paid in one or two terms: the first part will be paid immediately after his admission, while the second will be paid in April of the coming academic year.
  2. The fees are refundable only in two weeks time after the registration.  . However, the fees  related to the academic program books   will not be refunded.
  3. The fees are not refunded after the final admission.
  4. Exceptions can be made for those students who have strong wish to join the university;

but are either in urgent financial need or are well famous journalists. The administration of the University will decide who comes under in this category.

Supervising the students1 As soon as the student is admitted, a teacher will be appointed to supervise his studies.

2 During the period of his studies, the student will send his enquiries and questions to his supervisor. The latter will appropriately address them.

3 The student will either get an appropriate answer to his question if the latter proves to be relevant, or a mere confirmation that his question has been received.

4 Once the academic year is over, the supervisor will write a report on the conduct of the student. This report will be taken into account in the final result.

Exams

1 By the end of the academic year, the student will be examined in all the courses he has so far studied. The exams take part in two sessions:

  1. The first session takes part in June of every academic year in Den Haag for the students who reside in the Netherlands or in a neighbouring country, or in the offices of the universities worldwide under the supervision of the appointed directors. In case, the university has no bureau in the student’s country, then the former will be examined via internet.

In order to pass his exams, the student is required to get 70 % of the maximum score.  The student will be offered a second chance if he fails to secure that mark in the first session.

  1. The second session is quite similar to the first one. It concerns rather the students who couldn’t, for one reason or another, turn up to the exam or failed to pass it.  It takes place one month later than the first session.
