The university is moving over to a complete new applications process and it will be completely electronic, in shaa Allah, with application tracking, progress updates, and electronic notification of acceptance. This is expected to go live before the start of the new academic year.

The application form that is posted here is accepted by the university, and is recommended to use until the electronic application form goes live.

Here is the basic application form that I downloaded a couple of years ago (I have now unlocked the form so that you can type directly into the document):

The FAQ should now contain most things that you need in terms of filling out the application form. However, it is important to emphasise that you SHOULD NOT fill in your grandfather’s/father’s name if it is not on your official documents. Fill in your name exactly as it is on your official documents. I made this mistake myself, and now my residency permit has one name (matching my passport) and my university documents all contain my father’s name, which is not mentioned anywhere on my passport.
