This report on the higher education for young Syrian refugees in Jordan is part of a broader regional study commissioned by UNESCO. The project aims to assess the impact of the conflict in Syria and the results of the crisis on higher education policies, provisions for Syrian refugees in the host countries, including Lebanon, Iraq, Jordan, and Turkey. This report presents the findings of an investigation that aims to identify major lines of action in higher education in emergencies, namely, legal frameworks and policies implemented by key actors within the sector, whilst offering insights into the current status of Syrian refugees enrolled in higher education institutions in Jordan. The report employs a qualitative approach that intends to explore and understand the challenges and opportunities of Syrian refugee students to access higher education. Research shows that due to Jordan’s financial difficulties, the government’s attempts to revise clear and effective policies to accommodate for the influx of Syrian refugee students to the higher education sector are limited. Similarly, the lack of communication and coordination between key stakeholders including tertiary sector institutions, international organizations, and policy-makers, result in a significant gap in the understanding and implementing of these potential policies. Moreover, scholarship providers and international and local policy-makers are focusing more on the primary and secondary education sectors in Jordan. The findings of this study shed light on the vital role that higher education plays in improving living standards and the importance of Jordan as a host country to accustom to the increasing populations of Syrian refugee students in the tertiary education sector. This large influx of refugees presents a challenge for both the state and the local communities in satisfying both parties’ needs and goals. Several of these challenges are directly linked to the education sector: (1) legal issues including lack of accreditation and citizenship alongside restrictive host country policies, (2) inexperience in university application procedures or lack of academic and career guidance, which are potential pathways to the labor market or further education, and (3) financial shortcomings. The demand for higher education continues to far outstrip the opportunities available in Jordan, thus creating a large pool of Syrian students whose socioeconomic returns of tertiary education are limited. This case study of Jordan offers policy and program recommendations to decision- and policy-makers for the national and international communities and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), donors, education stakeholders and other institutions with the overall goal to improve and guide further practice and research in supporting displaced persons in protracted situations to access higher education and reap its future rewards.
