Flying Faculty at German Jordanian University




What is the Flying Faculty Program?

The FF program was established to enhance the exchange of expertise between GJU and its German partner universities. The program supports professors/lecturers especially from the partner universities to teach specific courses at GJU that add value and expertise to the regular curriculum offered by the faculties. The FF program also includes potential lectures form industrial partners, in order to enhance the relevance of the applied science teaching, and to further the cooperation between faculties and industry. 

For a FF application to be eligible for funding, the invited lecturer should either teach online, in person or in a hybrid model for a minimum of 20 and up to 48 hours (more detailed information in German here). A stay of seven days at GJU is funded.

Who can participate?

Professors and lecturers from German universities who would like to give a course in the associated school at GJU can participate. The professors and lecturers should preferably be part of our partner universities, although the program can also be used to establish new partnerships. Please find the application details on the respective page for Flying Faculty 2023.
