Dear Visitor,
Welcome to the website of the Federation of the Universities of the Islamic World (FUIW).


Higher education plays an important role in addressing comprehensive sustainable development issues, facing the challenges lying ahead, and coming up with suitable solutions. It is also substantial to the advancement of society, meeting its spiritual and material needs, promoting its cultural, civilizational and human values, and boosting individual knowledge and creative abilities.

Being cognizant of the paramount importance higher education has in the development process, and the necessity for boosting the scientific abilities of our universities to better meet the Islamic countries' need for suitably qualified human resources, the FUIW aims to help the Member Universities meet the challenges facing the Muslim Ummah at all levels. It also seeks to entrench science and technology in the Islamic countries, build science-based societies and boost the Member Universities' competences in the fields of scientific research, knowledge integration, curricula development and quality culture dissemination.

This website provides information on the universities of the Islamic world by shedding light on their activities, abilities and aspirations. You can also, dear visitor, use this website to know more about the Federation, its organs, regulations, membership conditions, the projects that were drawn by the General Secretariat and adopted by the General Conference and the Executive Council, as well as the Action Plans, Strategies, Programmes, Activities and Publications.

Welcoming you once again and wishing you a useful tour of our website, we hope that you will visit us again in the future.

Dr. Abdulaziz Othman Altwaijri,
Director General of the ISESCO
Secretary General of the FUIW
