Amman- The Vice President of Middle East University, Dr. Mahmoud Al-Wadi met with Ambassador of the Republic of Turkey in Jordan Mr. Marat Karaguz to discuss ways of cooperation in academic and cultural fields between the two sides.
The meeting was attended by the Director of Media and Public Relations Department at Middle East University Mr. Adel Al Titi, where the two sides discussed ways to activate academic and cultural exchange between Jordan and Turkey and the openness to Turkish academic institutions.
Moreover, Dr. Al Wadi presented about the University, its establishment and development and its academic programmes. The Vice President talked as well about the British Academic Programme of the University of Bedfordshire, which is hosted by MEU to enable Jordanian and Arab students to get Bachelor, Master and PhD degrees in various specializations.
In his turn, the Turkish Ambassador praised the distinguished academic level and reputation of the University. In addition to that, Mr. Karaguz expressed his interest in discussing the fields of joint academic cooperation between the two sides.
It is worth mentioning that Middle East University signed memorandums of understanding with a number of Turkish universities, including: Istanbul University, Sakarya University, Istanbul Aydın University and Fatih Sultan Mehmet Foundation University, in addition to Elite International Educational Services. Signing these memorandums was on the sideline of the University’s participation in the “Conference of the Presidents of Arab, Turkish, European and Asian Universities”, with the participation of universities and academic and educational institutions from around the world.
The Middle East University was founded in 2005 as a Graduate Studies University with twelve specializations. Towards the beginning of the academic year 2008-2009 the university opened twenty specializations for both Graduate and Undergraduate students with the ongoing growth in staff and students.
