Welcome Note

GJU students spend a year in Germany as part of their Bachelor degree. During this year, they take “Technical Elective” classes for one semester at one of our German partner universities. After that, they train in German industry for 5 months. Upon the students' return to Jordan, they transfer their German classes for GJU credit hours and have their practical training approved. This page is intended to archive useful information for students about to start their year in Germany and those who are there now.

A list of German partner universities can be found in the "Partner Universities" page.
