About IsDB

As a development bank, the role of the IsDB has not been limited to providing resources and financing operations, but also striving to help develop human resources, ensuring technology transfer to its member countries and Muslim communities in non-member countries, in order to build their technical capacities.  Its scholarship programmes with leading universities are designed to empower students and communities with a particular focus on sustainability, in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.

The Islamic Development Bank works with the Cambridge Trust to offer the IsDB Cambridge International Scholarship, which is available to PhD and Master’s applicants in the fields of Science and Technology.  This award forms part of the IsDB Scholarship Programmes.

In 2014 the IsDB was invited to join the University of Cambridge’s Vice-Chancellor’s Circle, in recognition of its generous support of postgraduate students in Cambridge.


With more than 18,000 students from all walks of life and all corners of the world, over 11,000 staff, 31 Colleges and 150 Departments, Faculties, Schools and other institutions, no two days are ever the same at the University of Cambridge.

At the heart of this confederation of Departments, Schools, Faculties and Colleges is a central administration team. It is small because the Colleges are self-governing and teaching staff carry out much of the daily administration at Cambridge.


The University is a confederation of Schools, Faculties, Departments and Colleges. The Colleges are governed by their own statutes and regulations, but are integral to the make-up of the University of Cambridge.


Students live, eat and socialise in one of the University’s 31 autonomous Colleges. Undergraduates receive College supervisions – small group teaching sessions – regarded as one of the best teaching models in the world.

Each College has its own internal procedures. They select their own students, subject to University regulations, and most admit both undergraduate and postgraduate students. College representatives sit on the University Council and Finance Committee.


There are six Schools, which each form an administrative grouping of Faculties and other institutions. They are: Arts and Humanities, Biological Sciences, Clinical Medicine, Humanities and Social Sciences, Physical Sciences, and Technology.

There is a Council of each School – including representatives of its Faculties and Departments. The Schools are represented on the General Board.

Faculties and Departments

University Faculties organise teaching and research into individual subjects or groups of subjects. Their work is normally organised into sub-divisions called Departments.

Centres of studies are controlled by committees of management, bringing together representatives from several disciplines.
