 LEBANON

THE CROSSROADS BETWEEN EAST AND WEST

Thanks to its strategic geographical position, its rich history marked by a succession of several ancient civilizations and its modern and bubbly way of life, Lebanon has always been considered the meeting point of the eastern and the western worlds. Once known as the Switzerland of the Middle-East, with regard to its high quality of life and its beautiful nature where mountains and beaches peek on each other, Lebanon took a hard blow during the 15-year civil war.
Today, Lebanon is back on its feet again, where extensive reconstruction and wide ranging development programs are undertaken to make it regain its position as the economical and the cultural leader of the whole region.
Lebanon packs a lot into its small borders : Phoenician ancient cities, Roman remnants, Islamic architecture. It also has fabulous outdoor activity opportunities : ski resorts, trekking, water-skiing, windsurfing, sailing.
The Lebanese educational system is open and free and reputed for its superior quality. Students coming from abroad have the choice between several educational systems : Anglo-Saxon, French or Lebanese and between three languages of instruction: English, French or Arabic. The old prestigious universities (American University of Beirut ; Université Saint-Joseph) as well as the long welcome tradition of Beirut makes it the intellectual and academic capital of the Middle-East.
