Higher Education


UNESCO is the only United Nations agency with a mandate in higher education.

In Jordan, UNESCO provides technical support and policy advice to the higher education sector on quality assurance and accreditation, strengthens institutional capacity in research and promotes Jordanian universities in global networks through the UNESCO Chairs.

There is ongoing collaboration between UNESCO, the Ministry of Higher Education and Jordanian universities to conduct activities in higher education, stimulate greater research, assure research quality and facilitate awareness-raising on issues such as the link between education and the labour market, ethics education and the promotion of peace and tolerance, professional education, science education, environment education and sustainable development.
