Weather Conditions

Georgia has a warm, temperate climate with pleasant weather that will definitely improve students’ mood, memory and broadening cognitive style like openness to new information and creative thoughts. Thanks to its geographical location, it enjoys a varied climate, which is mostly sub-tropical. The summers are hot and humid, and winters are mildly cold. While the northern mountain peaks are permanently snowbound, the west coastal areas by the Black Sea enjoy a year-round balmy weather. The average temperature in the east in summer ranges between 60°F to 75°F (20°C – 24°C) and in winter ranges between 36°F to 39°F (2°C – 4°C). The western Georgia experiences a sub-tropical, maritime climate and in summer the average temperature is 72°F (22°C), dropping to 41°F (5°C) in winter.

The Likhi mountain range divides the country into western and eastern halves, shielding the eastern part of the country from the influence of the Black Sea, and creating a continental climate. The western part of the country can get humid and experiences rainfall throughout the year, although it is at its heaviest in the autumn and winter months. In the east rainfall peaks in spring and winter is the driest season; although the mountainous areas receive a lot of rain, generally the amount of rainfall decreases with distance from the coast.

Georgia is a very safe country for travellers with one of the lowest crime levels in Europe. The local government strives to protect and ensure the safety and security of its citizens and institutions within the borders of the country, recognized by the global community. Georgia is guided by international laws and principles and therefore, recognizes that safety is inseparable in terms of citizens’ interdependence as well as in the international system, because the safety of one state cannot be achieved at the expense of the security of the other state.

Universities create a safe environment for health, life and property within the campus as well as in the campus surrounding areas.
