The University Preparatory Program (UPP) is a unit within the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. Its main objective is to address the specific English language needs of students who have completed high school with strong academic records but are unprepared to function in all-English curricula at the university level.
The UPP also offers two intensive English summer courses for newly admitted graduate students coming from outside AUB who have not fulfilled the English Language requirement. These courses aim at enabling such students to function effectively in all English curricula.
