In the 2012/2013 academic year, due to the successful performances of both its business and law schools and considering state priorities and market demand, GAU opened the natural sciences and engineering school. In the 2013-14 academic years, GAU added the liberal education and humanitarian sciences school. On a regular basis, GAU students are given unique opportunities through internships to work with local organizations. GAU students are also able to participate in foreign university exchange programs. For the 2012/2013 academic year, GAU moved to a new campus location (8 Merab Aleksidze st.). Which was more in line with its high university standards. The 6,000 Sq m building contains large classrooms, a modern library/computer center, café, gym, auditoriums and a theater. This, together with expansive grounds creates a pleasant and productive academic environment.
GAU has distinguished for its highest academic standards as well as an individual approach to each student.
