From December 5 to 7, staff and students of the Bolgar Islamic Academy took part in an online internship at Al-Bayt University (Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan). The internship was organized within the framework of the previously signed agreement on cooperation in the scientific and educational sphere. First and second year magistrates and Academy professors took part in it.

Masters’ students listened to a course of lectures on methodology of scientific and theological research and got acquainted with modern research of Jordanian colleagues in the field of Hadith and Quran studies. Of special interest to the students were lectures devoted to current trends in           Quran interpretation and Muslim hermeneutics, as well as the correlation of civil and religious identity from the perspective of Muslim theologians in Jordan.

It should be noted that this format of international cooperation between Bolgar Islamic Academy and the leading universities of the Muslim world not only broadens the outlook and increases the level of competence of the students, but also introduces the foreign colleagues to the activities of the Academy, helps to establish humanitarian relations and creates a positive image of the dynamically developing Russian system of Islamic education.

At the end of the internship trainees received certificates.
