The American University of Sharjah offers an accredited American-style education with English as the language of instruction. Our business programs are AACSB-accredited, our engineering programs are all ABET-accredited, and our Architecture program was the first outside the USA to receive the NAAB-accreditation.
AUS is very centrally located within the UAE and within the world map. Twenty minutes out of our front gate in one direction brings you to downtown Sharjah, celebrated by UNESCO and ISESCO as the Cultural Capital of the Arab and Islamic World; 20 minutes out our front gate in another direction brings you to the cosmopolitan and futuristic city of Dubai.
Embrace the strong intellectual tradition of the Middle East through education at AUS. Take accredited courses in your major, while enhancing your Arabic language skills through formal classroom instruction and daily conversational practice with native speakers.
Students coming from a university that does not currently have an exchange agreement with AUS are welcome to study abroad at AUS as a Visiting Student.
