The University of Jordan (UJ) on Sunday, March 19, entered into a memorandum of understanding with the University of Bradford (UoB), UK.
The MoU seeks to develop and strengthen the bonds between the two academic communities and in the process also contribute to generate understanding, cooperation and communication between the two cultures.
The MoU was signed by UJ President Prof. Azmi Mahafzah and UoB Vice-Chancellor Prof. Brian Cantor.
Under the MoU, UJ sponsored students applying to study at UoB will receive a 20% discount on tuition and bench fees.
Further, the two parts will endeavor to cooperate in the fields of student exchange, staff development and exchange and joint research programmes.
It is expected that this MoU will lead to a long term partnership between the two institutions and to expand into several other areas.
