KIU hopes to soon be accredited, by the Ministry of Higher Education, as a  Saudi based Islamic eLearning University, insha Allah.

One of the conditions for accreditation is to serve the large international Muslim community and not take students residing in Saudi as there are many local Islamic universities in Saudi Arabia.

Hence KIU will not be granting admission for students residing in Saudi Arabia.


For the online Bachelor Degree in Islamic Studies, students:

– Must have a general high school or College certificate

– Must be a minimum of 18 years of age

– Should pass certain admission tests if required.

– Reliable Internet connection.

Acceptance of applicants depends on their fulfilling the required conditions and will be according to their scores in their general high school certificate as well as special admission tests if required.
