Food (Muscat and Ibri)
On class days during regular courses Noor Majan provides refreshments, tea, coffee and home-cooked Omani lunches at the institute, except during the holy month of Ramadan during which students are welcome to consume their own meals in a secluded area of the institute. There are several supermarkets nearby and variety of Arab, Indian and fast food restaurants in walking distance from both student accommodations in Ibri and Muscat. Students studying in Ibri will be taken once a week by bus to Lulu Hypermarket for their grocery shopping .
Host Families (Only for Ibri)
Female students have the opportunity to live with Omani host families for the duration of their course. For this arrangement Noor Majan has to charge an additional 150 OMR per month. The family provides a bed, wardrobe and bed linen but we ask that you bring your own towels. Students will share the regular family meals. Our host families are carefully selected and understand the importance of Arabic language practice in the homes. They are eager to make students feel at home and as part of the family and to facilitate their glimpse into Omani culture. Our host families typically live in detached villas or on farms; some of them live in extended families and/or polygamous marriages and most families have children of different ages.
