The German-Jordanian University (GJU) is a public university located in Mushaqar. It was modelled on the German applied-sciences model, characterized by their focus on putting knowledge into practice and on promoting knowledge transfer. We aim to play a significant role in promoting links between Jordan and Europe, particularly Germany. By taking advantage of the best educational practices in both Jordan and Germany, the University has positioned itself as a leader in its field.
The University's focus is on providing undergraduate and graduate programs of the highest quality. It offers over 20 programs, with a student body of around 5,000, drawn predominantly from Jordan, but also including international students. GJU takes pride in the student-centered environment for learning and believes that quality education is founded upon close associations between faculty and students.
GJU recognizes research and research-led teaching as primary responsibilities of its academic staff and places value on fostering, publishing, and disseminating research of the highest quality internationally. The University's mission, goal, and strategy statements reflect this strong emphasis on the importance of quality research. It provides lifelong learning opportunities for a diverse spectrum of people, capitalizing extensively on partnerships with private companies and public agencies in the region.
