The Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Program admissions process consists of multiple stages with a filtering of candidates at each stage. The process begins with submission of an application through the Al-Quds Admissions website. All applications are first reviewed to check that the minimal program admission criteria (see below) are met in order for consideration as a candidate. In the next phase all acceptable applications are reviewed and evaluated by an admissions committee. Top ranking candidates are considered for an individual interview. All interviewees are also required to complete an English reading and writing assessment. A final decision is made by the admissions committee after all phases have been completed by the candidate.
After acceptance to the program, candidates are considered for financial aid to assist in partial payment of tuition. Requests are submitted to USAID; funding is awarded to individuals approved by USAID.
