During the meeting, Kyai Yusri hoped that his pesantren could realize academic collaborations with universities such as UIN Jakarta. According to Yusri, this collaboration is needed to bridge potential students in pursuing a better academic education.

“Many of our graduates have the potential to continue their higher education to tertiary institutions such as UIN Jakarta,” said Yusri.

Kyai Yusri explained that the curriculum of the pesantren, which is located in the Saipar Dolok Hole sub-district, allows them to get a complete general education. The total number of santri in this pesantren, which was founded by Haji Mursyid-Hajjah Riana Siregar, is more than 1000 students.

Based on the level of education, Pesantren Darul Mursyid has two levels of education, namely Madrasah Tsanawiyah (Accedited by an “A” status) and Madrasah Aliyah (Accedited by an “A” status).  In addition to the modern pesantren and madrasah curriculum, the students are also trained in foreign language skills, leadership, student interest and talent.
