International Partnerships

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Office of International Programs (OIP) develops and administers institutional partnerships with prestigious universities around the world in support of its mission to promote internationalization and diversity at AUB.  OIP manages agreements with universities for student and faculty mobility and welcomes inquiries both from potential partner universities as well as from AUB faculty regarding new partnerships.



Erasmus+ is the EU programme for Education, Training, Youth and Sport in Europe. As an integrated programme, Erasmus+ offers opportunities for AUB to develop inter-institutional agreements (IIA) for international credit mobility (ICM) with partner universities in Europe.  To develop an IIA, there must first be mutual interest to do so on the part of AUB and the prospective European partner institution (including Turkey).  A propo​sal is developed by both parties and submitted by the European institution to its national agency. If approved, funding becomes available for the of students (UG, GR and PhD), faculty and administrative staff depending on what was requested in the proposal.
