Jamiya Project: Reconnecting Syrian Refugees to Higher Educations

O Abu-Amsha, P. O'Keeffe & Laure Kloetzer

Résumé The Jamiya Project is a Syrian led project which delivers higher
education opportunities to Syrian refugees in the Middle
East. The Jamiya Project brings European universities, NGOs,
Syrian academics, technology and donors together to develop
and deliver accredited undergraduate courses in Arabic, via
blended online and face-to-face delivery. In August 2016 we
launch our first pilot course in Jordan, which is an Applied IT
course developed and delivered by the University of Gothenburg
and Syrian academics. It will be faclitated with the assistance
of the Norwegian Refugee Council at Za'atari Refugee
Camp and the Jesuit Refugee Services in Amman. It is a 12
week course and accreditied under the ECTS system. Our second
pilot course is scheduled to start in November and is a
7.5 ECTS accredited Global Studies courses, with the same institutional
partners, to be delivered in Jordan. Following our
pilot courses we aim to develop and deliver a variety of courses,
with various European university partners at various locations
in the Middle East.
