The University of Jordan

UNEVOC Centre (Uni/Research) since 1995

The University of Jordan is both a modern as well as old institution of Higher Education in Jordan. Established in 1962, the University has, since then, applied itself to the advancement of knowledge no less than to its dissemination .In its capacity as a comprehensive teaching, research and community-service institution, the University of Jordan enables its students to choose from a wide range of programs- more than 3500 different courses are offered by some 18 faculties.

The University works mainly through 3 main pillars:

  • provision of sound professional education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels (Most academic departments run Master´s programmes in addition to the regular undergraduate programmes associated with these departments. Very few, however, run the doctoral programme);
  • support of goal-oriented research, particularly research activities which are in line with the national developmental plans;
  • community service to the country and region through training and research centres such as Centre for Consultation and Technical Studies which provides training programmes in many areas of specialisation.


  • Manage society in order to make UJ one of globally ranked universities by 2018;
  • become a pioneer university amongst globally ranked ones by providing students with outstanding teaching and learning experience

  • Excel in the academic and institutional side at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels;
  • Promoting the spirit of loyalty and pride amongst faculty members, administrative staff, students and alumni;
  • Readiness for accountability by higher education officials for the provision of quality in its programs, services and procedures as well as its commitment to the laws and regulations;
  • Providing safe, healthy and stable environment that encourages UJ's administrative, faculty members and students to learn, create and excel;
  • Excelling in research production and postgraduate programs in a way that serves local, regional and global communities in addition to developing the educational process;
  • Perfectly invest available human and material resources in order to serve the educational process and achieve its vision and mission;
