About Cambridge Muslim College

The Cambridge Muslim College works to enhance training and Islamic scholarship to help meet the many challenges facing the community in modern Britain. The College is committed to promoting the highest standards of academic excellence in Islamic studies in the contemporary context while maintaining respect for the religion’s authentic traditions and sources. Drawing on resources and expertise in Cambridge and beyond, the College’s mission is to help mobilise the many existing strengths of British Muslims to produce stronger, more dynamic institutions and communities.  
The College welcomes Muslims of all backgrounds who wish to deepen their pastoral skills and their awareness of contemporary developments in Britain and the world. It is independent of governments and is not affiliated to any Islamic movement. CMC provides a prayerful context for strengthening da’wa skills and scholarly resources to support all who care about the continuing health and dynamism of Britain’s Muslim community.
