Where You Will Study

Qasid Arabic Institute provides comprehensive instruction for students from beginning to advanced Arabic. Many scholars of Arabic have noted that the Jordanian dialect is among the closest to Classical Arabic (fusha), making Amman an ideal setting for studying Arabic.


The academic program is divided into two tracks, Classical and Modern Standard Arabic. Students have the option to apply to either, both of which provide training at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. Each class meets four hours per day, five days per week, over the course of nine weeks (summer session), and three hours per day, five days per week over the course of twelve weeks (fall, winter, and spring sessions).


Qasid staff will help to find suitable housing based on the preferences indicated on the housing application. The main options to choose from are dorm & suite-style units and private apartments. A comparison matrix and website showing photos of these options help each student select the option most suitable for him or her. Most housing coordinated through Qasid is located on a main street, accessible to inexpensive public transport. Transport times to Qasid are usually no more than 5-7 minutes.


Program Expenses, Financial Aid & Scholarships

In most cases, if you are attending an affiliated program you will be billed by, and pay all fees directly to, the program provider or institution operating the program. The UW Study Abroad Administrative Fee will be billed to your UW student account according to the regular UW tuition billing schedule.
