Study abroad in Sharjah


Sharjah, UNESCO's designated 'Cultural Capital of the Arab World', is located just north of the city of Dubai. Sharjah is known for its efforts to preserve the Arab culture, with its many cultural museums, heritage areas, traditional souks, lagoons, and active dhow ports. Sharjah is also home to the beautiful, park-like University City, located just across the street from the Sharjah International Airport, and approximately twenty minutes from the world-famous Dubai International Airport. Within University City, visitors have an exciting opportunity to study abroad at the American University of Sharjah (AUS). AUS offers an American-style of education in a co-educational, English language environment with an extremely diverse population of approximately 5,500 students and 350 faculties consisting of 85 different nationalities. AUS has four colleges and schools: College of Engineering (bachelor degree programs are ABET-accredited); College of Architecture, Art and Design (Bachelor of Architecture is NAAB-accredited); School of Business and Administration (AACSB-accredited); and a College of Arts and Sciences.

UAE does not issue specific student visas, instead students will apply for a one-year residency visa. Student residency visas are 'sponsored' and organized by the university. In order to issue a visa, students must undergo a range of medical screening tests within an authorized UAE medical center, including chest x-ray and blood test screening for HIV, Hepatitis B and C, Tuberculosis, Leprosy, and Syphilis. If results came back positive for any of the above-mentioned conditions, the person will be deported. In addition, students must apply for an Emirates ID upon arrival.
