My Experience at PSUT

I am very thankful of having been awarded with the Phoenix Erasmus Mundus scholarship, which gave me the opportunity to conduct a staff stay at Princess Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT), Amman, Jordan, for one month. During my stay, I had the chance to share research interests and exchange ideas about teaching methods with lecturers and professors, which allowed me to realize the high level of studies in this university. I am also very satisfied with my experience offering several seminars to and interacting with students of Business. Last but not least, I appreciated the good level of English among the academic community.

I consider the stay at PSUT has meant a great value for my life, in professional and personal terms. Firstly, as a result of the stay I have enlarged my own network to collaborate in the near future and I have acquired new ideas for research and teaching skills. Secondly, the stay has been helpful for my personal autonomy, contributing to increase my self-trust, and specially to open my mind to new concepts and life perspectives.

I am also very glad with my stay at PSUT because the academic community was very helpful and kind to me. I enjoyed good meals and interesting talks with professors and students, which contributed to make me feel part of this nice family of PSUT. Moreover, the mobility within this environment was a great chance to learn a little more about the amazing Arab culture.
