Arabic and Business

The University of Edinburgh has a long and well-established reputation for teaching about Islam and the history, culture and literature of the Middle East. In the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, our Arabic & Persian research was part of the Area Studies submission. This was ranked first in Scotland and 74 per cent of our publications were rated either world-leading or internationally excellent. We are the only university in Scotland to offer courses in three main languages of the Muslim world – Arabic, Persian and Turkish. Our Arabic and Persian programmes provide a unique opportunity to learn the region's languages and develop a better understanding of the region's politics, culture, religion, history, literature and law. You will have the opportunity to study a full range of material from pre-Islamic poetry and Islamic philosophy to modern literature and cinema.
