Abstract: Participation in research conducted by Polish scientific projects in Jordan offers many opportunities for development to students of various disciplines. Most of them are students of archaeology, but there is also much work to be done and experience to be acquired for students of Arabic philology, linguistics, ethnology, cultural studies, law, political studies, sociology, and more. As a part of Kraków research activities in Jordan, some student projects concerning popularization of science, Arabic language and culture have begun. All of them take place in cooperation with the Polish Embassy in Amman and thanks to the great support of its personnel.
