The Hashemite University (HU) is the fifth state university in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. It is located on the outskirts of the city of Zarqa to the east (about 45 minutes drive) of the capital Amman. Zarqa Governorate is the second most populated Governorate in the country. The Hashemite University believes in Internationalization as a process, which integrates an international or intercultural dimension or perspective into the major functions of the university, namely teaching, research, and service. Internationalization means cooperation and exchange over national borders.
Today, international cooperation is rightfully seen as an indicator of quality and mark of excellence. It has become more important because we live in a globalised world in which universities play an increasingly important role as nodes in a knowledge network which links together many different actors. The Hashemite University is involved in many projects that are funded from International Organizations or Agencies.
