    Amazing campus. A vast green spot right in the heart of Beirut

    Amazing place with amazing diversity and refreshing scholarly people. I liked the overall experience a lot and would definitely recommend this university to anyone in Lebanon or the nearby countries (so long as you can afford the high fees of course)

    BS in Chemistry at AUB

    AUB, simply put, was home away from home. The campus in Beirut is located in Hamra, an area loaded with accommodation, nightlife, and food – lots of food. Unlike the cement jungle surrounding it, AUB has lush greenery and a very big campus. The campus motivated you to get involved in varsity programs, as there are facilities available for numerous sports and extracurricular activities. I chose to not do varsity sports but regularly booked facilities for leisure time with friends. AUB hosts students from all over the world, with societies and clubs to suit everyone. The cultural diversity made the campus very vibrant – it felt like its own little city. The campus staff are very welcoming, and professors (most of them at least) tend to be eager to teach students. I did however have a poor experience with a professor in my first year – but I guess the picky annoying professor is a must in every facility. Most of the students are welcoming, some are stuck up as you would expect, and premed students tend to be untrustworthy – the competition is toxic to say the least. I was lucky enough to have the chance to get involved in organic chemistry research as an undergraduate student, and the state of the art equipment available made the experience worthwhile. Some facilities need improvement – one of which was the chemistry department. The building is well over 20 years old and there is lots of room for renovation. However, given that AUB was established in 1866 and has been growing ever since, you would expect some facilities to be worn out. The engineering and business department blocs have recently been renovated, and work remains to go on despite the deteriorating economic status – which is a good sign. This brings me to my last and arguably the most important point. Lebanon’s economic status has been going to bits lately, and the overall safety in the country itself has decreased as you would expect. The campus dorms and facilities do remain very very well secured though.

    The campus is beautiful

    The university campus is beautiful and international with many different people. But the administration makes student life very difficult. The situation in the country has caused university life to be more difficult and not enjoyable. The teachers aren’t all fully qualified. The admin must work on making things flow easier for students.

    Program of the future

    Really recommended. Very interesting topics and courses. Always keeping up with upcoming technologies. The professors are very friendly and treat you with care instead of being just a number in the system.

    Beautiful campus

    I am a civil and environmental engineering graduate. The program consists of different subjects (traffic, water, soil,..). I find it much more convenient to decrease the number of credits required for the last year. The professors and advisors are really friendly and helpful, and working with them was a great experience.

    Very high quality education

    I found the computer science programme at AUB very beneficial. The university offers top-quality education while promoting critical thinking and encouraging students to work in groups while applying what they studied in class to real-world problems.

    A tough program

    The pandemic played a role in the overall experience as the last year and a half was all online. The computer and communications engineering program was very tough, the professors put more importance on grades rather than the actual understanding and explanation of the material to the students.

    Ed. Department

    I think my program is missing important courses that would really benefit teachers and prepare them for teaching. I also think that the practicum course should start earlier and should not be left till the 3rd year.

    CEC needs lot of work

    I don’t know about the regular AUB courses, but I’m a student at the CEC for many years, and I think this center needs a lot of work and attention, whether on the administrative level which is way below average or on the educational level where not all teachers are up to the level and professional standards as if this center is undervalued and is not really taken seriously and it’s disappointing by the fact that it’s not really offering an AUB kind of educational level.

    The step to a successful life

    I am a student at the American University of Beirut (AUB) in the program of Public Policy and International Affairs. Our professors are all experts in their fields, they help us in acquiring knowledge in the domain by the experience they share with us.
    The content of study is very well organized and the materials are very rich. I appreciate the student life at AUB and all the facilities it offers.
    In addition to attending classes and lectures, students can mostly spend all day there while being productive; whether from studying at the library, joining the various university clubs, working out at the gym, swimming in the indoor pool, accessing the university beach during summer, or many other sports activities.
    The tuition fees are pretty remarkable: but distinguished students can still benefit from scholarships, as well as graduate assistantships for the graduate studies (Master’s programs), and others can have financial aids if needed.
    I highly recommend it, since studying at AUB is more than just getting a degree, it’s also about the experience and the skills that the students gain during their time spent here!
