Centre for the Study of Islam in the Contemporary World

Study Days

"There's more to Islam than the Five Pillars..."


A unique opportunity for senior pupils across Scotland

Through this unique programme of study days, the Alwaleed Centre is offering senior pupils across Scotland the chance to explore the rich history of Islam and Islamic culture.

A typical study day will involve workshops, lectures and Q&A panel sessions helping to bring Islam to life, encouraging pupils to dig beyond the sterotypes and approach Islam with a greater respect and understanding.

Sessions are delivered by experts based at the University of Edinburgh as well as local community representatives who provide a unique insight into the lives of Scotland's Muslim communities.


You can download the programmes of two recent study days delivered by the Alwaleed Centre in Edinburgh and in Stewarton (East Ayrshire).
