Amman- Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Middle East University, Dr. Yacoub Nasereddin, met with a student delegation from the Australian National University, in order to discuss future plans and stages experienced by the students through their academic and professional journeys.
During the meeting, Dr. Yacoub Nasereddin expressed his delight whenever meeting with youth from different age groups. He added that the youth are the hope, future, and bedrock of any community’s advancement and prominence. It is worth noting that the meeting was organized by Student Exchange and Studying Abroad Programmes Division at the Deanship of International Programmes.
Chairman of the Board of Trustees confirmed to the students that one cannot prosper in life without continuous hard-work and learning. Dr. Nasereddin called on the importance of learning, self-confidence, and the ability of making a change. He also stated that life, with all of its struggles, allows us to be more determined and successful.
Dr. Nasereddin stressed that students must possess knowledge, objectives, and a message in order to achieve success and uplift society; for knowledge is power. Australian students presented a review of Jordan’s history and successive civilizations, in addition to different Jordanian traditions. The students expressed their pleasure and state of serenity for being in Jordan, applauding their Jordanian colleagues’ hospitality.
It is worth mentioning that Middle East University hosted Australian students over two months, in order to promote cultural and academic exchange. That also leads to the exchange of experiences with MEU’s students, networking, and opening up to international cultures. Not to mention that such experiences provide the University’s students with international knowledge and skills. The academic exchange consists of interactive workshops and field trips to get to know various cultures.
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.
