Admissions

Al-Ahliyya Amman University welcomes enquiries and applications from everyone with an interest in the University’s courses. All disabled students considering whether to apply to AAU are encouraged to contact the relevant Learning Support Officer to find out about the Financial Discounts, Scholarships and Technical support available to them. All applicants are considered entirely on their academic merits, in accordance with the University’s diversity policies. Disability information on the application form is removed in advance of submission to admission staff. The criteria and procedures for selecting students are relevant only to the general academic requirements of the University’s Regulations and the specific additional requirements of each course of study. Guidance and training in diversity and disability awareness is available to all staff.

Once a formal offer is made to a student who has declared a disability, the student is invited to contact the relevant Learning Support Officer to discuss specific support needs and adjustments (if required). For students who omit to declare a disability on their application form or become disabled during the course of their studies, processes are in place to provide support and adjustments throughout the academic year either through the Learning Support Officers.
