International Association of Universities
BSL became a member of the International Association of Universities (IAU) – the UNESCO-based global association of higher education institutions and organizations – in July 2016. The membership opens access to state-sponsored grants and scholarships for students from various countries who now have the option to apply for financial support for their studies at BSL.
IAU brings together its Members from more than 130 countries for reflection and action on common priorities. IAU is an independent, bilingual (English and French), non-governmental organization. It acts as the voice of higher education to UNESCO and other international higher education organizations, and provides a global forum for leaders of institutions and associations.
As a member if IAU, BSL is listed on the World Higher Education Database (WHED) Portal, the most comprehensive reference tool on higher education systems, degrees and institutions worldwide. Students applying for a state scholarship for their BSL studies can refer to the WHED listing.
