Islamic studies remain the main area of concern for foreign nationals in Saudi Arabia. Successful applicants will be housed at no charge at the luxurious student dorms located in the city surrounding the university, which is women-only. Students will be provided with free food and health care, gyms, as well as given a monthly allowance of 800 Saudi Riyals and a round trip ticket home to visit every year for the summer holidays.
