Islamic Virtual University Sharjah (IVU) fees, programs, courses, and general information
  • Course and fees information not supplied. Please send fee structure to education@dubaifaqs.com.
18 April 2013
  • A new Sharjah Islamic University was announced. Unknown if related to the Islamic Virtual University or online university in Sharjah. Seems unlikely given that the IVU plot area (1,000 sq m) is about 0.1% of the size of the new SIU plot (1 million sq meters or 1 sq km).
18 September 2012
  • The IVU is a new university planned in Sharjah. Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Ruler of Sharjah, offered a 1,000 square meter plot of land in Sharjah University City for the construction of the new campus (WAM news). Not clear if "Virtual" means it is an Islamic Online University or something else.
  • According to the news release, "The Islamic Virtual University project seeks to expand cooperation on education, science and culture between the universities of the Islamic world ..."
  • Construction schedule and opening date not supplied.
Last update 28 September 2012
