Jordan is a popular education destination for Arabic, Islamic and Middle East studies, especially for non-Arab students. Jordan is also a desired destination for students within the Middle East and elsewhere for degrees in medicine, engineering, IT and natural sciences.
Jordan is home to around 44,000 international students representing 107 countries, studying in public and private Jordanian universities. Currently, there are around 170 Singaporean students studying at Jordanian universities. Singaporean students interested in studying Arabic may obtain academic degrees in Arabic language and Arabic literature from Jordanian universities, they may also undertake a semester abroad in Jordan or participate in student exchange programs. This should be arranged through the students’ respective universities.
There are 32 universities in Jordan: 10 public, 20 private, and 2 regional universities.
The academic year is made up of two academic semesters of a duration of sixteen weeks each. There is an optional eight-week summer semester. The credit hour system of teaching in most educational programs is generally applicable in Jordanian universities.
