Under the slogan “education never stops,” AUB invited potential applicants interested in its graduate studies programs to visit its campus, and attend the Graduate Council
’s Open House held for the eighth year in a row.
Around 400 attendees visiting from local, regional, and international universities and companies, learned about masters and PhD programs offered across the university’s faculties, scholarships and funding opportunities, preparatory English classes, how to submit admission applications, and the graduate student experience at AUB.
The day kicked off with presentations by the Graduate Council and the university's seven faculties, followed by an application setup demo. Attendees then headed for a reception where they visited various booths and learned more about programs they are interested in and how the university can facilitate their individual application process, funding, as well as experience as a student.
“You are encouraged to pursue graduate studies at AUB because AUB is a resilient university with daring professors and research that is relevant to our country and the region”, said AUB Professor Najat Saliba in her speech during the event.
Founded over a century and a half ago, AUB ranks number one in graduate employability in the region, and number 45 globally, according to the QS World University Rankings 2019. It is committed to making higher education accessible to qualified and motivated students. The university offers rigorous academic curricula and established research facilities, in addition to a uniquely rewarding and all-encompassing graduate student experience, thanks to its framework for graduate professional development (GradEx
) and its wide-ranging on-campus support units and student-centered initiatives.
Currently, AUB offers over 90 master's and PhD degrees that span the fields of humanities and social sciences, natural and computational sciences, health, nursing and medical sciences, agricultural and food sciences, business and economics, and engineering and architecture.
Around 50% of the master's student population at AUB benefit from graduate assistantships and scholarships consisting of partial or full tuition waiver, and the majority of PhD students receive fellowships with full tuition waiver and attractive monthly stipends.
