About Lebanese American University

The Lebanese American University, based in Beirut and Byblos, is the 15th best university in the Arab region and was ranked among the best 700 universities in the world in 2016.

The Lebanese American University offers bachelors, masters, MBAs and executive MBAs all taught in English, covering a broad range of subjects within:

  • Arts
  • Architecture and design
  • Business
  • Engineering
  • Medicine
  • Nursing
  • Pharmacy
  • Sciences  

What’s it actually like to study abroad in Beirut and Byblos?

With a fair proportion of international students on campus (about 18%), and as many as 77 different nationalities represented, the Lebanese American University benefits from a diverse student body.

Nonetheless, to help you acclimatize to your new life in Lebanon, you’d be matched with a group of local “buddies” as part of your orientation to visit the campus, locate nearby banks and shops, find a great place to stay and get to know your new country.

Beirut, home to one of the university campuses, was named Conde Nast Traveller’s Top City in the Middle East in 2013. It’s a stunning coastal capital, steeped in antiquity, over 5,000 years old, and known for its cultural highlights and incredible nightlife.

Whether you’re into beautiful sandy beaches, trendy high-rises and restaurants or ancient Roman baths, there should be something in Beirut to keep you busy.

Elsewhere, Byblos, where the Lebanese American University has a second campus, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is located a mere 40 kilometers from the capital, on a gorgeous sandstone cliff by the sea.

Funding

Tuition fees vary depending on your course and number of credits, although there are scholarships available to students, including:

  • Academic merit scholarships, which cover 100% of fees
  • Athletic scholarships
  • CNRS scholarships, in collaboration with the National Council for Scientific Research

In addition to scholarships, the Lebanese American University also offers graduate assistantships to deserving students. These grant students tuition fee waivers in exchange for a specific number of hours each week spent teaching and researching. Read more about it here.
