International Students Welcomed to Campus

Birzeit University's Palestine and Arab Studies Program (PAS) welcomed on January 25, 2016 a new class of international students. The program teaches the Arabic language and Palestinian culture to non-native speakers.

The Director of the program Tina Rafidi introduced the new students to the program, pointing out that this program is designed to help them adjust to the academic and social life at Birzeit University, and Palestine in general. Rafidi also expressed her excitement about the diversity in nationalities that the program has each semester.

The Administrative and Financial Coordinator at the Program Rasha Kassis said that more than 30 students from Japan, Korea, Germany, the United States, Britain and Norway are enrolled this semester.
