Founded in 1997, AUS is acclaimed throughout the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries and the Middle East for its academic excellence and multicultural campus environment. We are an independent, non-profit, coeducational institution of higher education formed on the American model, which integrates broad-based liberal arts education with professional education studies. At AUS, all classes and administrative functions are conducted in English.
The university has proven to be an ideal setting for the promotion of cross-cultural understanding as well as an educational environment where every student can realize his/her full potential. We are proud of having an almost 50:50 ratio of male and female students, including both graduate and undergraduate students.
