National Institute for Islamic and Contemporary Studies (NIICS) enrolls only bright and
talented students below 12 years in the year of application who have primary knowledge
on Islamic basics. Admission to this Urdu medium program is based only on merit and
intellectual potential of students that are evaluated through standard oral and written
entrance tests. This is because, DHIU believes that only bright and superbly intelligent
students will be capable to pursue the extensive curricula adopted by the University.
The calls for applications are made in the Arabic month of Sha’ban every year, while the
entrance tests are held in the first week of Shawwal. The University offers a continuous
stream of twelve-year studies, starting from Secondary until Post Graduation. Therefore,
it does not allow fresh admissions to higher levels.
