Global Education - Study Abroad Programs

The University partners with a number of international universities in running joint programs. The focus is on programs of study for both undergraduate and post-graduate degrees, with students undertaking cultural exchange programs for either one semester or a full academic year. These programs are in line with the University’s goals to raise academic and technological competency levels.

By enrolling in any of these programs, BSc students are able to undertake a course of study and graduate with degrees from both of the participating universities, while potentially receiving study grants of about 42% (in-state-fees) from the institutions involved. 

PSUT has signed collaboration agreements with Indiana University-Bloomington (IU), Oakland University (OU), and the University of Michigan - Dearborn (UMD) in the USA to provide joint teaching programs for common courses in Engineering, Computing Sciences, and Business.

Useful Links for course mapping:

Check out the Major Requirements on the pages below. There is also a sample schedule provided at the end. If you click on a course, you will get the course description (one paragraph):
 
 
 
"Q: Can I work while I am studying at OU?

A: As an F-1 non-degree seeking student (at least for the first year--the student completes credits at OU that transfer back to PSUT) the student would not be eligible for what is called Curricular Practical Training (CPT) or the authorization to work off-campus in your field of study. You could do something non-paid that is more informal like a job shadow at a company or something like that. Once you transition to the master's program you would need to be in F-1 status for two semesters to be eligible to be authorized for (CPT). So this would be possible as part of a master's program at OU.

With respect to full-time status, 12 credits is full-time at the undergraduate level and 8 is full-time at the master's level:

In a degree-seeking program you can be less than full time in only a few circumstances, issues with English in your first semester, health/medical, and in your last semester if you are getting the balance of credits for your degree program.

In a non-degree situation, it would be a stretch for OU to authorize less than full time in that case. However,  it would be no problem once you have transitioned to the masters, you could for example only have a few credits in your last semester and be authorized for a part-time or a full-time CPT.

In other words, If you have be in F1 status for 8 months by the time you have started the master's program you would be eligible for part-time CPT (off campus) as long as you are registered full time.   If you come to OU for your last undergraduate year in f1 status it will count toward that 8 months "

Ok, I'm interested, what's next? (Information per Academic School)

We recommend you visit the websites of the universities you are eligible for (see options per Faculty/School below), use their online "fees calculator", and study your options for the master degree at each university, or just study the courses offered by the final year at their bachelor degrees which you might be interested to take.  

Once you discuss the matter with your family and have a final decision to travel, we suggest the following steps:

  1. Start preparing for the TOEFL/IELTS/Duo-lingo English test.
  2. Write down the final-year classes that you wish to take in the States, and send us an email with those class names at int.rel.off@psut.edu.jo and president.coord@psut.edu.jo
  3. After you email us your classes, you should start an online applying via the website of your chosen university, and make sure you check the deadline date for their application acceptance; noting that in the United States, semesters start earlier and deadlines are much earlier than ours in Jordan.  You may start uploading requested documents, including your unofficial transcripts so far, which you can download from the regnew system.  Once you have most of the requested documents uploaded, please email us your application number and/or correct name spelling and/or the email address you used for the application, please always use these email addresses when you contact us: int.rel.off@psut.edu.jo and president.coord@psut.edu.jo

To start mapping your courses, you can download the "Learning Agreement" here.

 

Q: I have an expired IELTS/TOEFL; is that acceptable?

A: No, unfortunately, you will have to re-take the exam to have a current certificate at the time of application.

 

Q: I spoke with my family and I want to go to USA, so what's next?

Please follow these steps:

1. Start by visiting the websites of our American partner universities and looking at what programs they offer.

3. When your list is ready, contact us at the International Relations Office by emailing your Learning Agreement to int.rel.off@psut.edu.jo for the next steps.

 

Q: I am already done, or almost done with my undergraduate program, can I go for a master's degree directly?

Yes, you can, the process is the same.  But you might need a little more than one year for the master's degree.

 

Q: I hold a US citizenship/passport, how does that affect my application?

1. You will not be required to go through the F1 visa steps with the American Embassy.

2. You may not need to submit financial documentation (this rule differs among universities).

3. You will still need to meet the English proficiency requirement if your pre-university degree is from outside the United States.

4. With regard to the tuition scholarship, most universities will still offer you in-state tuition since the agreement covers PSUT students regardless of their nationality.  But this rule differs among some of our partners.

 

Q: What about the course "Military Sciences" (علوم عسكرية)? Do I still have to take it?

The Ministry of Higher Education mandates that any student with Jordanian nationality must take this class to qualify for a Bachelor's Degree.
