Erasmus project has established a student support unit
"RSOS" at Zarqa University. The unit provides academic support
services and life skills for the labor market for refugee and local students. The
unit program includes more than 20 training courses for students in cooperation
with participating European universities. The project involves a group of
European universities with expertise in the development of specialized services
to support and integrate students from conflict countries in the academic
process and to meet the educational needs.
Zarqa University participates in the
Rescue project supported by the European Union (Erasmus) to prepare a
specialized program to train the staff of the Student Support Units (RSOS) to
provide diverse and specialized services.
The project trained more than 50
administrative staff from Arab universities by trainers from European
universities, and 8 RSOS units were established working in universities from Jordan,
Lebanon, and Iraq. More than 250 hours of training were given to employees in
student support units in various subjects to facilitate integration with Academic
process and development skills of the labor market crisis.
In light of the continuing crisis, participating Arab
universities, including Zarqa University, support the continuity of the units
to help students after the project is finished. RSOS unit at Zarqa University
has held more than twenty workshops in various topics and has provided services
to more than 150 students since the opening of the unit in March 2019. Project
Coordinator Dr. Marco Dinato said that it was clear from the third Brussels
conference about supporting the future of Syria and the region (March 12-14,
2019), and that the Syrian crisis is far
from being resolved, illustrating the
importance of these efforts to pursue a bachelor's degree for youth.
pointed out that he challenge we face is that we can't lose an entire
generation and exclude them from developing their future because this will lead
them to dangerous paths, this challenge
requires cooperation with stakeholders, the local partners and international
community, that's what the RESCUE project is trying to do. It was guidance philosophy UNIMED, so that we invite
our partners to cooperate with student support units and urge them to cooperate
with these local offices, continue to cooperate on new projects serving host
and host communities, and sign sustainable cooperation agreements.
