New Host Institution Partners in Amman and Buenos Aires

ISA is pleased to announce the launch of two new host institution partners at our existing sites of Amman, Jordan, and Buenos Aires, Argentina.

In Amman, ISA has partnered with Princess Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT) to offer our new Business, Engineering, and Information Technology program starting Spring 2013. As the first private, non-profit university in Jordan, PSUT is known for its emphasis on quality education, innovation, entrepreneurship, and capacity building. The program will be open to students from all majors, including those who wish to study Arabic. Participants of this program may choose from an extensive list of courses taught in English in the fields of Business, Engineering, and Information Technology, all of which will be taken with Jordanian students. Students participating in this program will also be able to take the existing Arabic language courses offered at Al-Alhiyya Amman University alongside other ISA students studying in Jordan. Outside of the academic program, students will live with other ISA students in apartments and participate in excursions to Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba, the Dead Sea, Jerash, and Ajloun, as well as many cultural activities around the city of Amman.

In Buenos Aires, ISA has partnered with the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) to offer our new Agriculture, Environmental Sciences and Spanish Language summer program starting Summer 2013. The UBA is a national university, founded in 1821, and one of the oldest and largest public institutions in Argentina. ISA is specifically partnering with the UBA’s School of Agriculture; a largely autonomous unit within the UBA, which has been in existence for over a century. The FAUBA (Facultad de Agronomía de la Universidad de Buenos Aires) strives to combine its academic experience with technology and research, bridging the gap between land, business and science. Agriculture and environmental science courses are taught by host university faculty from the FAUBA, while Spanish Language courses are taught by faculty from the Centro Universitario de Idiomas. Outside of the academic program, students will live with other ISA students in host families and participate in excursions to El Tigre and Iguazú Falls, as well as many cultural activities around the city of Buenos Aires.
