Cambridge IGCSE Islamiyat (Islamic Studies)

IGCSE-ISLAMIC-STUDIES-Small1

Overview

Cambridge IGCSE Islamiyat syllabus enables learners to develop an understanding of the importance of the major beliefs of Islam, and of the early history of the Islamic community. As a result, learners develop their knowledge and understanding of the main elements of Islamic faith and history, evaluating the meaning and importance of these elements in the lives and thoughts of Muslims. Although the syllabus is studied in English, some familiarity with passages from the Qur’an and Hadith in Arabic is assumed.  [reference : www.cie.org.uk]

Students not already registered with their schools and colleges but planning to sit for the IGCSE examinations should independently register with Cambridge International Examinations. It’s not Cambridge Islamic College’s responsibility to register students for the Cambridge International Examinations. Cambridge Islamic College is merely offering a comprehensive set of lectures to support and prepare students planning to sit for the Cambridge IGCSE Islamiyat (0493) examinations.

Why study Islam?

According to a research published recently by the US-based Pew Research Centre and reported in The Telegraph, Islam is the only religion growing faster than the world’s population. It is the world’s second largest religion after Christianity. About 1.6 billion people, or 23 percent of the world’s population, are Muslims. Thus, Islamic Studies has become a subject of strategic importance in the world today. For students wishing to study for any degree at Britain’s top universities, Religious Studies, including the study of Islam, is classified as one of the most important List A subjects that students should do and pass at school in order to be admitted into a top British university. Similarly, Muslim students who wish to do some of the College’s courses in the field of Islamic sciences, classical Arabic texts, balāgha, among others, this IGCSE programme is an important route and preparation.

What career opportunities are there for students of Islam?

It is an important preparation for employment in state and local government, foreign office, journalism, media and broadcasting, teaching, academia, religious organisations, NGOs and other social agencies, security and intelligence services.
