Preparatory Program

The Preparatory program at BAU aims at preparing newly admitted students who need intensive English language preparation and/or science courses for improvement before starting their undergraduate study program.

You may derive many benefits from taking part in the preparatory program. If you come from cultural backgrounds in which studying and teaching is done in different ways from what you will find at BAU, preparation study methods will lead to a better chance of academic success afterwards. The preparatory program also allows you to adapt to university life in Beirut before you start your major academic studies. The specific objectives of the program are:

  • To improve English Language proficiency and develop your skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening in English for academic purposes.
  • To review, reinforce and consolidate your knowledge of mathematics and basic sciences.
  • To familiarize you with the various undergraduate majors available and their requirements of admission, including study skills and discipline. The duration of the Preparatory Program is one year, divided into two regular semesters along with the freshman program and remedial courses.
