Sweden to launch its first state-funded imam course
Sweden is to launch its first state-funded Islamic theology programme this autumn, which the course organizers hope will provide more locally-educated imams.
The one year course in Islamic theology and leadership will be provided by adult education centre Kista Folk High School (Kista Folkhögskola), situated in the north-west of the country's capital.
The institution was awarded money from this year's 'folkbildningsanslaget', a central government grant that is distributed annually to Sweden's folk high schools.
