All praise is due to Allah Lord of the worlds, and may the Salaat and the Salaam be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and companions.
Please download the official application form for the Islamic University of Madinah here:
May Allah reward our brother Abu Abdullaah Mohammed Akhtar Chaudhry (graduate British student from the Islamic University of Madinah) for making the application form available online.
For those who are unable to come to the University personally for an interview, then you may send all of the required documents, along with the completed application form above, by post (mail) directly to the Islamic University of Madinah at the address below:
Deanship of Admissions and Registration
The Islamic University, P.O. Box 170
Madinah Munawwarah, Saudi Arabia

You may contact the University by phone if you wish:
00-966-4-847-1884 (011 instead of 00 from US and Canada)
For those who would like to come personally for an interview to the University along with submitting your documents, then the University mentions on the official application form that:
Applicants may apply for admission for all stages in the period between October 23 and January 20 each year.
However, the University usually allows people to apply and grants them interviews as soon as school starts at the beginning of the adademic year. A good time to visit and apply is during Ramadhan, but make sure you get it done before Hajj. Students can still send in their applications by mail after Hajj, or visit to apply and get interviewed after Hajj, but those applications will be processed for the year after the following and not the following year of which the application was given in. However, due to the differences between the Hijri and Gregorian calendar, Hajj season is always being pulled back a few days every year, so dates do change, meaning, there are always exceptions to the rules as to when the exact final cutoff date is for applications to be considered for the following year.
It is highly advisable to visit the University administrative offices with a current student when you go personally for the interview. The current student in most cases will be present with you translating for you the questions of the interviewer if he does not speak English.
Allah is the granter of Success and may the Salaat and the Salaam be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and companions.
