KIIS Morocco provides a first-hand and unique window into the linguistic, cultural, and ethnic diversity of Morocco for students with interest in learning Arabic language and culture as well as Moroccan history, politics and religion. Beginner, Intermediate and advanced Arabic-language courses are offered as well as thematic courses in English.
Students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a multi-linguistic Arab society, with a noticeable European influence. The program is based in the capital city of Rabat, located on the Atlantic coast south of Spain. It is a beautiful cosmopolitan city with a pleasant temperate climate. On weekdays, students take classes and participate in a variety of cultural excursions in Rabat. On certain long-weekends, the program includes overnight excursions to popular historic and cultural destinations such as Marrakesh or Fez. Additionally, students will have two free weekends during the program.
To complement KIIS Morocco course offerings, guest lecturers from local universities will be selected and efforts are made to bring together KIIS and Moroccan students in lively discussions on topics of interest.
Please note: No Arabic is required for this program. Students are encouraged to take one Arabic language course (the program offers Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced Arabic). Students have the option not to take any Arabic language courses and instead enroll in two English-language thematic courses.
