Al-Maktoum College thrives in the city of Dundee, Scotland which was named the ‘Best Place to live in Scotland’ by the Sunday Times 2019. Known for its life sciences, computer gaming industry, research, arts, as well as hi-tech manufacturing, Dundee is indeed a city of education.

Funded primarily by the Al-Maktoum Foundation, the College’s vision for high-quality teaching and learning, enriched by a multicultural perspective makes for a rewarding educational experience.

Its goal to build bridges between communities through intellectual debate and the promotion of Middle Eastern and Islamic studies has resulted in a diverse, friendly and international approach to teaching and studying. This makes the College a somewhat unique establishment in Scotland and in the UK today. 

The College is pleased to announce partnerships with the University of Dundee and Abertay University and an agreement with Trinity College Dublin was signed in the summer of 2019.
