What’s good is a great culture and a lot of international students. What didn’t work was the situation in Lebanon (closing roads), and the University is in Beirut so it was a bit difficult to arrive to classes.

Even though from the start classes were held online it didn't disturb to serve qualified knowledge. Professors are well educated professionals and the material that we cover is useful. Even though I haven't fully felt the culture of that university still everything looks satisfying.
