Higher Education Accreditation Commission (HEAC) President Bashir Zu’bi on Thursday said that results of classification of the Jordanian universities would be announced by the end of the year.
During a meeting with presidents of private universities, Zu’bi said that HEAC is working on developing the university proficiency exam, considering the test as a tool of quality assurance of academic programmes.
He noted that private universities should have syllabi that accord with the requirements outlined in the reform plan of education and vocational and technical training, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported on Friday.
He added that HEAC also seeks to attract more Arab and foreign students, aiming to raise their number from 39,769 to 70,000 by 2020.
