This page will be updated regularly until the beginning of the Fall Term 2020 on September 21. We invite you to keep checking it.

Welcome to the Antonine University (UA)

This year unlike others, UA will hold its Integration Day for New Students virtually. While we love to see you on campus, the given health situation taking over the country, the region, and the globe has dominated over our physical presence hopefully for not so long. While we are apart, your health remains our top priority and we will always be ready to escort and guide you through this transitional period. For this, our Virtual Integration Day will introduce you to your faculty and some other essentials at the University.

During the same session, one of your academic advisers—who are always ready to guide you and advise you through your academic journey—will introduce to you the academic program you are enrolled in. Feel free to ask them anything you need to know.
