American University in Dubai

The American University in Dubai (AUD) is a private, non-sectarian institution of higher learning in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, founded in 1995. AUD is accredited regionally as a separate unit by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. AUD serves UAE nationals and international students from all over the world and offers them an American-style education.

The University has both US and UAE accreditation for all of its programs. AUD is the only university outside the United States and Latin America to be directly accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, although it is not the only US-accredited university in the Persian Gulf region (others are accredited by the U.S. Middle States Commission on Higher Education).

The evolution of the American University in Dubai began as a fact-finding mission in 1991 and signified the beginning of what was to grow to become one of the region’s most respected institutions for higher education.

AUD is renowned for its vibrant atmosphere and buzzing campus life.  Whether it’s sports, extracurricular activities, societies or student leadership initiatives, emerging yourself in student life on and off campus is vital for all-round development and can be rewarding and enriching experience. It is our aim to entertain, challenge and feed you with new, exciting experiences, while you explore the depth of Dubai and the wider U.A.E

Located in the heart of Dubai’s creative hub, the AUD campus is a prominent feature in the sprawling business neighborhood of Dubai Media City.
