Discovering Oman: Excursions & Activities

The thoughtfully and carefully organized cultural excursions around Oman are one of Noor Majan’s strengths. Each monthly course will have at least one half-day tour and one overnight excursion. These excursions are a chance to explore the country and serve as a continuation and important enhancement of a student’s language studies. Language partners and teachers are invited on excursions as supervisors with the purpose of engaging students and building friendships. Locations of other excursions are determined by factors including season, weather, safety, and availability of local hosts and guides. Below are just a few of the excursions we offer to students.


Housing and Food


Housing: Muscat

Students at Noor Majan–Muscat will stay at either Noor Majan student apartments or at hotel-apartments located within walking distance from the institute. Accommodation at either the Noor Majan student apartments or the hotel-apartments is covered by the course fee. The apartments are gender-segregated, located within walking distance from Noor Majan–Muscat campus. The accommodation is surrounded by a plethora of restaurants, shops, laundry services, and taxi and bus stations. The apartments consist of shared two, three, or four-bedroom apartments. Bedrooms are double occupancy, depending on capacities, students may upgrade their room to single occupancy at an additional fee. The fully equipped kitchen, lounge area, bathrooms, washing machines, and flat-screen TVs are for shared usage within one apartment. All apartments are equipped with Wi-Fi internet access. Bed linen is provided but you need to bring your own towels.

The package covers all accommodation (including excursions) for the duration of your stay with us.


During regular courses on class days, Noor Majan is pleased to offer students refreshments, tea, coffee, and delightful home-cooked Omani lunches at the institute. However, it’s important to note that during the holy month of Ramadan, students are kindly requested to enjoy their meals in a secluded area within the institute premises.

For those seeking additional dining options, there are numerous supermarkets in close proximity to the institute, as well as a diverse range of Arab, Indian, and fast food restaurants within walking distance from both student accommodations in Ibri and Muscat.

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.

Travel and Visa

Visa Arrangements

Noor Majan is committed to assisting students in obtaining their student visas for the duration of their stay at the institute. However, it is essential to comply with Oman’s immigration authorities’ policies, which require the cancelation of any remaining visa period after the course ends. To facilitate the visa application process, we kindly ask participants to fully cooperate by providing Noor Majan with accurate personal data and the necessary documents (please ensure that passports are valid for at least six months after the course ends).

Please note that there is a visa fee of 30 OMR, which will be the responsibility of the participant.

While Noor Majan endeavors to support every visa application, the final decision rests with the administration of the Royal Oman Police (ROP). Therefore, we cannot guarantee the success of every application. In the unfortunate event of a visa refusal by the ROP, Noor Majan will provide full reimbursement of the course fees, except for a nominal administrative fee of 50 OMR.
