The American University of Bahrain (AUBH) is the first comprehensive, purpose-built, American-style university in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

The American University of Bahrain opened in September 2019, welcoming its inaugural class of students for the fall term, under the Founding President's leadership, Dr. Susan E. Saxton.

AUBH is proud to be licensed by the Higher Education Council of the Ministry of Education of Bahrain, and is seeking accreditation with one of the six U.S. regional accreditors recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), holding the highest level of quality assurance at the institutional level.
