Announcements for New Incoming International Students:
- The AUB Mentor Program
is a group of carefully selected and trained AUB students that, in collaboration with OIP, helps to ensure that international students have a stress-free integration into the AUB community. Every semester, the Mentors plan several exciting events (usually including paintball or ski excursions) to help you learn about your peers and about Lebanon outside the boundaries of Ras Beirut! Near the begining of each semester you will be matched with a Mentor who will be able to answer any questions, concerns, or worries that you might have prior to your arrival to Beirut. If you have recently received your letter of acceptance from the AUB Admissions Office & have not yet heard about your mentor assignment, feel free to email oip<at>aub.edu.lb for more information.
Dear International Student,
As an international Student at AUB, you will be supported by the Office of International Programs (OIP), a team dedicated to ensuring that each student's stay at AUB is rewarding and successful.
AUB is home to somewhere between 1,500-2,000 international students (defined as holders of non-Lebanese passports) from over 60 different countries; and enjoys a similar global diversity amongst its faculty, senior administrators, and staff. AUB recognizes that international students, whether degree seeking or incoming study abroad visitors, whether graduate, post-doctoral or undergraduate, whether from Jordan or Japan, have special concerns.

- Pre-arrival advice (following admission to AUB)
- On-site orientation, mentoring and intercultural activities
- De-mystification of processes and procedures on campus
- Advice on obtaining student visas or student residency permits
- Forums (both electronic and in-person) for interaction with other AUB student populations
