The American University in Dubai welcomes you to join them as an international student in the United Arab Emirates. This institute was founded in 1995 and currently enrolls almost 3,000 students. The majority of our international students choose to focus their studies in Middle Eastern culture and language. AUD is a great program to consider if you're looking for a unique study abroad experience, but still want a familiar education system. Dubai is also an amazing city to live and study in as it has increasingly become a melting pot of culture in the region.
