About Universitas Islam International Indonesia (UII)

UIII was founded under the mandate of Presidential Regulation Number 57 of 2016 on the Establishment of the Indonesian International Islamic University as a higher education institution with international standards, to be a leading Islamic higher education model in Islamic studies, social sciences, humanities, and technological sciences.

The Indonesian government wants a world-class Islamic university in Indonesia that not only explores Islamic studies but also introduces to the world that Islamic civilization in Indonesia can also make a positive contribution to the discovery of knowledge and the preservation of world civilization.

Indonesia cannot ignore expectations for further contributions to the global political and cultural orders. With the success it has achieved, it is time for Indonesia to step up and offer solutions on an international stage. The international community increasingly needs it, and such a role is a historical mandate as well. From the beginning, the founders of the republic have always been determined to stand up for world peace, as stated in the preamble of the 1945 Constitution. Unfortunately, Indonesia was unable to contribute to the early years of independence as it was still struggling to develop the newborn country and nation. Indonesia today is a much different country, far more prepared and much more needed, therefore the historical mandate should be carried out.

The founding of the Indonesian International Islamic University aims to increase international academic community recognition of Islam’s role in Indonesia and to turn the country into one of the world’s Islamic civilization centers through higher education that meets international civilization centers through higher standards and its various levels.

UIII has designed the curriculum in each department by referring to academic benchmarks, which have become the norms in leading general higher education institutions.

MA Programs

MA programs at UIII are intended to produce scientists on par with research associates. Students of such programs are directed to conduct an in-depth study of the grand theory in their respective fields of study. They must also delve deeper into more specific theories related to their sub-specialization interests. Furthermore, they will be provided with knowledge of the methodology underlying the scientific construct of the study program.

It should be noted that an MA student is not expected to pick a specialization, but the student is encouraged to pick an area of interest, which can later be developed into a specialization at the doctoral level. To that end, they can choose from a considerable number of elective courses on which to later develop a theme of their interest.

PhD Programs

Doctoral programs at the UIII are designed to produce expert thinkers and researchers. Doctoral students are required to fully master the main theories of the study program they have selected. They must also correctly understand all of the more specific theories relating to their field or specialization. At this level, students must already understand and be able to fully apply methodologies developed in their respective disciplines.

Compared to the graduate programs, the UIII doctoral programs require complete mastery at the level of theory and methodology, as well as in-depth knowledge regarding the subfield or specialization of the student’s primary interest. Graduates of doctoral programs are being prepared to become expert researchers who can innovate and generate new thoughts and findings.

Funding and Scholarship

UIII offers several generous scholarships for students who wish to study for Masters’s and Doctors. For the 2021-2022 academic year, UIII offers scholarships for those who are eligible to pursue a master’s degree. The UIII Scholarships are awarded to high-caliber individuals who demonstrate academic excellence, present excellent co-curricular activity records and exhibit outstanding leadership qualities. UIII graduates are expected to contribute significantly to their society and emerge as dynamic global leaders who are capable of bringing about positive change in society and inspiring others. These UIII scholarships are bond-free to give passionate individuals the opportunity to pursue a graduate education of their choice at UIII.
