A Hungarian delegation consisting of representatives of the Hungarian Ministry of Human Resources, the Tempus Public Foundation, the Hungarian Rectors’ Conference and eight Hungarian universities visited Jordan between 10-12 October in order to promote the Stipendium Hungaricum Scholarship Program and Hungarian HEIs in Jordan.

Jordan's large youth population and emphasis on education gives European universities a unique opportunity to recruit Jordanian students. Hungary, with its high-level education and attractive scholarship program can become one of the most popular destinations. The 3 days long program series offered the participating institutions the possibility to present themselves both to prospective partner institutions and to students.



The delegation participated in the Study in Europe Jordan 2017 education fair organised in Amman on 11 October, where our representative had the chance to meet prospective Jordanian students wishing to pursue their university studies in Hungary.

Beside recruitment activities, the university representatives took part in the Study in Europe Networking Event, where Hungarian and other European HEIs had the chance to meet and discuss cooperation possibilities with representatives from Jordanian universities. The event reached its goal: several Jordanian universities showed interest in cooperating with our university in the framework of Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility program.



In the last couple of years the University of Dunaújváros has made every endeavour to to attract Jordanian students to UOD. We hope that this participation in Study in Europe Fair Jordan and the Networking Event will contribute to achieve our goals, and we will soon be able to welcome more colleagues, full time and part-time students from Jordan in Dunaújváros.
