The University of Al-Karaouine or Al-Qarawiyyin was founded in Fes in 859. The madrasa has been (and still is) one of the leading spiritual and educational centers of the Muslim world. It played a leading role in the cultural and academic relations between the Islamic world and Europe in the middle ages. The Al-Karaouine institution is considered by the Guinness book the oldest continuously operating academic degree-granting university in the world. The Al-Karaouine Mosque and University is in the Medina of Fez which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    Hi, I’ve just started a new Group and this is just the type of high quality image we’re looking for!
    Please consider joining us at University and College Life

  • Hi Louise, thanks a lot for your kind words! I am sorry but I don’t have anything else to contribute to your lovely group besides this image. Thanks a lot for the invitation though.

    That’s okay Kon – I think this image is excellent, even if it is your only University or College photo. If you are out and about with your camera, you might come across a college or university in Athens or anywhere else!! You never know. Thanks for adding this one to our group. :-)

  • All right Louise, I will join the group and I will submit the image, cheers!
