International & National Educational Relations


Since its foundation in 1988, the University of Balamand (UOB) has worked diligently to establish a network of national and international relations.


All actions undertaken in the area of these relations have been marked by the need to link the University with internationally recognized centers of excellence and to set up projects of medium and long term duration.

 
 
The internationalization aspect is also reflected in research, quality assurance, internationally oriented activities, institutional affiliations, and in the diversity of full-time students and full-time faculty members.


 
Based on the history of cooperation between Europe and Lebanon, and since countries on both sides of the Mediterranean share common interests, it has always been of great importance to UOB to forge strong collaboration at all levels with Europe.

In this context, the University highly encourages mobility of students and staff in both directions. Thus, UOB international partnerships are certain to expand and deepen.
