This increase led to many student-led protests against the institutions and left students with a feeling of hopelessness and uncertainty about the future of their education.
As many students can no longer afford to enroll in AUB or LAU, UOB may expect to welcome a large number of new and eager youth adamant to continue their education, despite the fact that its main campus is all the way in El-Koura, North Lebanon.
If UOB sticks to the decision, it can have the potential to become the largest hub for education in North Lebanon.
