The Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research (Arabic: وزارة التعليم العالي والبحث العلمي) is the government body that is responsible for maintaining and implementing government policies in higher education in Jordan. The ministry provides the support, services and organization aimed at guiding higher education sector in Jordan.

History[edit]

The Council of Higher Education was established in 1982 in response to the increased demand of regulating and planning the policies of higher education. In 1985, the council was renamed to the Ministry of Higher Education.

The ministry was annulled and was merged within the Ministry of Education in 1998, but was re-established in 2001 and was renamed as the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research.[1]
