By preparing women to be skilled professionals, innovators, and service-oriented leaders, AUW is the standard bearer in the region’s effort to modernize and help women achieve their full potential. The United States is proud to serve as a partner with AUW on programs that advance these objectives.

The academic program at AUW is based on the firm belief that responsible citizens of the world must be equipped with strong skills in critical thinking, analysis, and communication. The University offers the following programs:

The Access Academy, a year-long pre-collegiate bridge program that provides intensive study of English language studies, mathematics, world history and geography, computers and karate.  The Academy is designed to enable students to acquire the requisite academic preparation to pursue a rigorous University liberal arts education.

The undergraduate program consists of a core curriculum that introduces students to the important modes of thought and reasoning, a major and electives.  Those who complete the undergraduate program earn a B.A. or B.S. degree.  During their undergraduate summers, students will also have the opportunity to engage in summer research projects, international study, and internships with public and private organizations in countries across the region and around the world.

English is the medium of instruction in all AUW programs.
