Welcome to The American University in Dubai.

Like all web-sites, this one contains plenty of information: facts regarding AUD's accreditation, the degree programs we offer, student services beyond classroom instruction, facilities and people – students, administrators, faculty and staff – who make up the university community.

The thread that links them all is AUD’s genuine American ethos, expressed nonetheless with consummate respect for its local habitat.

The maintenance of high academic standards; an emphasis on innovative and critical thinking; the cultivation of curiosity and a spirit of inquiry; and the identification of the "whole person" as the target for human and cultural development are those factors which truly distinguish American education. It is significant that these are precisely the values which underpin the university's identity. Furthermore, they account for the success of its graduates at home and abroad, a success that figures prominently in the university's contribution to society.

AUD is truly a place that brings out the best in its constituents by reminding them of their potential, calling for a demonstration of capability and rewarding achievement. I trust you find this journey through the world of AUD both informative and stimulating. At the very least, I hope it gives you something to think about…
