The envoy met Governor Hassan Al-Jbour and Mayor Emad Al-Momani and spoke with students and academics at the Hashemite University.

The university is benefiting from the British Council’s Going Global Partnerships, which support students and academics to build international connections and become more globally competitive, according to an embassy statement.

It has also secured funding through the British Council’s Gender Equality Partnership to support women working in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and run several programs in partnership with British academic institutions through the Newton-Khalidi scientific cooperation scheme.

In a discussion with students, Brind emphasized the UK’s commitment to championing the value of education for all, and its work in Jordan to improve access to and quality of education for vulnerable boys and girls.

She highlighted the UK’s support for international education partnerships and the opportunities for Jordanian students to study at outstanding British universities, as well as the UK’s Chevening Scholarship Scheme, which offers a number of awards to Jordanians each year to study in the UK for a fully funded master’s degree course.

The ambassador also joined a roundtable at the '’Nusharek’’ center, a community-based organization specializing in youth empowerment and social cohesion.
