Study Environment

With more than 60 years’ experience in the Middle East and North Africa, AMIDEAST students benefit from the organization’s long-term experience, strong regional connections, and deep understanding of local culture. AMIDEAST Education Abroad Programs provide students with wide-ranging opportunities to interact with local university students and to gain the most from intercultural encounters on semester, academic-year, short-term, and summer study abroad experiences in Arab countries.

Guided by an Academic Consortium that represents a cross-section of U.S. higher education, AMIDEAST programs are designed to provide academic excellence. Courses are taught in a U.S. format by local faculty and are held in AMIDEAST’s local facilities with other students on the program.

 

Jordan

All classes are held in AMIDEAST’s center in Amman. The center is located in the Wadi Abdoun area of Amman and is a ½-kilometer walk from the Abdoun circle where there are many cafes and restaurants. It is also located approximately ten minutes or less by taxi from other popular parts of Abdoun, Sweifieh, Shmeishani, and the 3rd Circle.

While the AMIDEAST center in Amman is not located on a university campus, there are many Jordanians who use this center for educational activities. The AMIDEAST/Jordan center offers a number of different services to individuals and local organizations such as English language courses, professional training, entrepreneurship workshops and mentoring, scholarship opportunities in the U.S. and elsewhere, management consulting and coaching, internationally recognized test administration, and educational advising and placement services. In other words, the AMIDEAST center is a hub for many different educational and training activities, in addition to our Education Abroad Programs.

The AMIDEAST center is a large facility in a stand-alone building with a number of large and small modern classrooms, Wi-Fi access, two small lounge spaces dedicated specifically to Education Abroad students, staff offices, and a small, but growing, library of books specifically purchased for Education Abroad student use. The AMIDEAST center in Amman also has computers reserved for student use. Although computers are available, AMIDEAST recommends that students bring a laptop if possible in order to complete Arabic listening activities (using DVDs) and to be able to complete homework outside of the AMIDEAST center.
