The Markfield Institute of Higher Education (MIHE), situated near the city of Leicester in the UK, is a pioneering institution in the field of Islamic education and research, offering a wide range of Postgraduate Certificates, Postgraduate Diplomas, Masters and PhD programmes validated and awarded by the University of Gloucestershire, according to a press release. The courses currently offered by MIHE include Islamic Banking and Finance, Islamic Education, Islamic Studies and Muslim Community Studies.
In 2009, MIHE signed two Memorandums of Understanding in Brunei – one with Bank Islam Brunei Darussalam (BIBD) for the provision of training in Islamic Banking and Finance for BIBD’s staff, as well as another with Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA) for cooperation in the area of higher education.
MIHE is accredited by the British Accreditation Council and approved by the United Kingdom Border Agency as a Tier 4 student sponsor. Representatives from MIHE have been visiting Brunei very regularly since 2008 for the purpose of establishing cooperation with educational institutions in Brunei and for promoting the Postgraduate Courses available from them.
