Based on ZU’s straightforward goals of opening education chances for those who wish,
and to empower those whose financial and employment conditions have not let them
start their first university certificate, ZU launched the Evening Studies program
at the outset of the academic year 2000 / 2001. It offers the following specialties:
English Language and Literature, Computer Science, Computer Information Systems,
Law, Business Management, Management Information Systems, Accounting, and Financial
and Banking Sciences.
Upon His Majesty King Abdullah II’s directives of easing the citizens’ economic
burdens as well as the noble manners of ZU’s Board of Directors, led by its president
Dr Mahmoud Abu-Sha’ira, discounts have been given to the Evening Studies students
since the beginning of the 1st semester of the academic year 2013 / 2014, amounting
to 60% in most specialties. Those who registered in the program in the 2nd semester
of the same year were 650 students.
