The German-Jordanian University is an international university that in general encourages its students to study abroad during their course of study and specifically demands of the one year stay in Germany.
The GJU is the result of a strong commitment for close academic cooperation between Jordan and Germany. Therefore the internationalization of the university will always remain one of the key targets for the foreseeable future.
Hence the first mission of the International Office is to accelerate the internationalization of the University by developing strong partnerships with universities mainly within Germany.
The second mission of the IO is to engage GJU’s teachers and students in educational and practical experiences internationally. The IO consults, prepares and manages this particular phase within the study career of every student in close cooperation with the Exchange Officers and the IOs of our partner universities.
The third task of the International Office is to facilitate the integration of international students and scholars into GJU’s world of knowledge.
The targets of the international office to fulfill its mission are:
1. To be an efficient and positive client focused force within and outside the GJU;
2. To maintain close working relationships with her partner universities;
3. To administratively manage the exchange year of all students;
4. To administratively manage the attendance of summer school programs in Germany attended by GJU students;
5. To have the GJU staff gather personal experiences with Germany;
6. To develop new partnerships;
7. To develop new initiatives.
The GJU community relies on the unique international expertise of the International Office to provide it with information and access to the network of German universities.
The creation and transmission of new knowledge is a global enterprise taking place under internationally diverse conditions. GJU’s global presence makes this institution’s accomplishments in the creation of new knowledge available to communities reaching beyond national, linguistic, and cultural boundaries. GJU becomes globalized by excelling in the production and transmission of new knowledge and giving it a strong German impact.
Success in internationalizing requires the deep and diverse expertise provided by the International Office as the institutional anchor for enhancing and disseminating knowledge about the regions, cultures, languages, and significant issues of Germany. The International Office adds crucial value to GJU’s aspirations as a Jordanian-German academic institution committed to responsible international engagement. The International Office web portal will provide a unified information platform through which students, faculty, and staff of GJU and its partners can know about and take advantage of international opportunities in learning, training and research in Amman, in Germany and around the globe.
The International Office will be glad to assist you and provide information to make your stay at the GJU or abroad as pleasant as possible
