Safety in Jordan






FIE is an appointed representative of Endsleigh Insurance Services Limited, which is authorized and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. Students are covered by the Endsleigh group policy, unless this coverage has been waived by their home institution.                                                      

Full information on the Endsleigh policy, including how to make an claim, can be found on our Insurance page.

Endsleigh coverage is in effect only for the dates of the program so you should not cancel any existing insurance coverage. Students are covered by the Endsleigh group policy, unless this coverage has been waived by their home institution

As part of the program fee, AMIDEAST provides medical and accident insurance for all students through CISI. In addition to medical insurance, CISI provides high-quality medical, political, and natural disaster evacuation coverage. 

Once in the country, AMIDEAST program staff will help students deal with medical issues should they arise. They have a list of recommended providers and hospitals both in the host city and in areas visited on excursions as well.

FIE is committed to a comprehensive policy of Equal Opportunity.

FIE supports the social model of disability and recognize that environments, services, and facilities may be either “enabling” or “disabling” and therefore accommodations may be necessary in order to allow for full access to FIE programs.

Applications from students with disabilities are welcomed and any necessary accommodations will be handled on an individual case by case basis.

Please visit our Diversity & Inclusivity page, with links to our Accessibility and Student Resources information.
