Students who elect to study abroad with API at the American University of Sharjah (AUS) choose from a range of undergraduate classes open to Emirati and international students.
AUS awards credit in a similar fashion to most U.S. universities. Students generally take 4-5 classes in order to receive up to 16 credit hours per semester. Additional courses may be taken for an additional fee. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that they are enrolled in the required amount of semester credits to meet requirements of the home university. In all departments, entrance to specific courses is subject to the approval of AUS and the completion of certain prerequisites.
API students receive a transcript from the American University of Sharjah upon completion of their program.
