International Relations Office

About  

PSUT’s International Relations Office (IRO) was established in response to a new strategy which places international relations high on the University’s list of priorities. This strategy recognizes that internationalization stretches across all the different university portfolios with the objective of developing an internationalization culture and institutional capacity through the transfer of know-how and good practice.

Strong international relations greatly assist the innovative reach of PSUT and enable it to formulate meaningful research and exchange partnerships that provide access to resources and knowledge from the best institutions the world over.

The IRO currently oversees and manages agreements and Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) and constantly seeks new international connections and partnerships.

About

CIEE is a non-profit, non-governmental international exchange organization. For over 60 years, our mission has been "to help people gain understanding, acquire knowledge, and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world."  We develop and administer programs, advocate for the advancement of international education, and build knowledge through CIEE research, publications, and conferences.

For U.S. students, faculty, and administrators, CIEE offers programs including study abroad, teach abroad, and faculty development seminars. For those interested in coming to the U.S. on an exchange program, options range from high school programs to J-1 work and internship opportunities. Click on the links above to learn more.

CIEE Amman

Through intensive Arabic language training, a challenging, comprehensive academic program, and a variety of cultural activities and excursions, study abroad in Amman gives students greater insight into life in the Middle East, and a truly unique Jordanian experience.

Study abroad in Jordan will:

  • Improve the student’s Arabic in intensive language courses in modern standard and colloquial Jordanian Arabic.
  • Allow the student to choose from a variety of regional studies courses in English and learn about political and cultural issues from guest lecturers.
  • Give the student the opportunity to interact with local university students and improve their Arabic skills through a peer tutor program and target language clubs.
  • Give the student the opportunity to visit important archaeological and natural sites in Jordan including Petra, the Dead Sea, and biblical sites.
  • Allow students to get involved with the local community through a range of volunteer activities.

Agreements

PSUT has signed a student exchange agreement with the Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE). CIEE is a non-profit, non-governmental organization for international exchange, with over 325 member institutions, headquartered in Portland, Maine, USA. Its main mandate is to develop and administer programs, advocate for the advancement of international education, and build knowledge through research, publications, and conferences.

In its effort to offer the best possible educational experience, PSUT welcomes the excellent opportunity this agreement provides for intercultural exchange and interaction between its students and those from diverse American universities enrolling in programs at PSUT, which will be jointly taught by CIEE and PSUT faculty.

At the signing ceremony, the President of PSUT at that time, Prof. Issa Batarseh, remarked that “the globalization phenomenon has made it imperative that universities like PSUT encourage student exchange and interaction as absolutely essential elements for a truly universal and diverse academic experience. Such exchanges potentially lead to win-win partnerships in collaborative research, improvement of program quality and understanding cross-cultural trends and mindsets.  We are very optimistic that our partnership with CIEE will have exactly these beneficial results. Our aim is to promote synergetic integration among students on both sides to ensure a rich academic and cultural experience.”

Success Stories

Learning a new language is always a challenge. From grammatical rules, to pronouncing words, to simply memorizing vocabulary, everything seems daunting and difficult. But making the decision to immerse myself in an exchange program at PSUT in Jordan has brought me to appreciate and love the Arabic language.
