Mu’tah University (Arabic: جامعة مؤتة, Jāmi‘atu Mu'tah) is a public university in the Jordanian town of Mu'tah which was founded on 22 March 1981 by the Royal Decree to be a national institution for military and civilian higher education.


In addition to the military college, Mu'tah University is divided into the following 15 main faculties:[1]

Faculty of Medicine

The Faculty of Medicine of Mu'tah University was founded in 2001; in accordance with the vision of King Abdullah II of the need of the kingdom to have more doctors and to have a medical school in the southern part of the country. The number of students enrolled at this medical school has increased over the last years; the number admitted in the academic year 2001/2002 was 27 students while in the academic year 2009/2010, the number was 185. The faculty awards its graduates a bachelor's degree in Medicine and Surgery M.B.B.S after completing a minimum of 262 credit hours. These include 31 credit hours of university requirements, 10 credit hours of basic scientific requirements, 86 credit hours of basic medical science requirements, and 135 credit hours of medical science requirements.[citation needed]

The faculty also offers research programmes and postgraduate medical education.

The graduation with the bachelor's degree in medicine and surgery demands the regularly attending student to complete all the requirements of the teaching plan as mentioned before; the cumulative average should not be less than 60%. This plan is applied for a minimum period of six academic years, extending to 8 years as a maximum.
