Arabic Language Scheme

The Anglo-Omani Society, with generous support from the Omani Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is pleased to announce 10 full scholarships for a period of intensive language study in Oman.

The scheme takes place at Sultan Qaboos College for Teaching Arabic to Non-Native Speakers, located in Manah, about 20 minutes from the city of Nizwa. The programme includes full board at the student hostel attached to the college in Manah. There are 5 hours of tuition per day, focused mainly on Modern Standard Arabic, but also including classes and practical language exchange in Omani dialect. The course this year will run from 16th August for 6 weeks.

Aims of the Course:

  • To provide British nationals with the opportunity to improve upon their current level of Arabic proficiency; whether an enthusiastic beginner or a confident intermediate.
  • To provide British leaders of the future with an understanding of the history, environment, and culture of the Sultanate and its people.
  • To develop strong links between a variety of British universities and the Sultan Qaboos Language College for Teaching Arabic to Non-Native Speakers.
