Abroad Experience at the American University of Sharjah, UAE

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

American University of Sharjah welcomes students from around the world to study abroad for one semester or an entire calendar/academic year. AUS offers a coeducational, US-style curriculum with English language of instruction. The university is accredited by the Middle States Commission of Higher Education in the US, and the various academic programs are accredited within the US-system (e.g. AACSB, ABET, NAAB, etc.). Studying abroad at AUS enables students to continue in their major/minor programs of study at a very high-quality institution, learn Arabic, and experience the full diversity of our student body representing 90 nationalities across the Arab/Islamic world and beyond. Consciously based upon American institutions of higher education, AUS is thoroughly grounded in Arab culture and is part of a larger process of the revitalization of intellectual life in the Middle East. AUS is located at the intersection of four very different worlds: the traditional Arab city of Sharjah, celebrated by UNESCO and ISESCO as the Cultural Capital of the Arab World; the cosmopolitan and futuristic city of Dubai; the wide open desert where students can experience life as a Bedouin; and finally the Indian Ocean resort shoreline where snorkeling and traditional water sports abound. The UAE is popular among tourists and expats from across the world. You will always feel right at home in the UAE especially with its very low levels of property crime, and very low levels of violent crime.
