The American University of Bahrain (AUBH), enrolled transfer students from North America, the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia for its Inaugural spring term, welcoming them to the University’s state-of-the-art campus in Riffa, on February 9th, 2020.
AUBH launched a holistic solution for students to transfer the maximum number of credits to AUBH degree programs. The process facilitated credit transfer for applicants from universities on an international level, including American-style universities, as a response to high demand. The process was announced on January 11th, during the university’s first Open House of 2020. AUBH continues admitting students for the spring and fall 2020 semesters.
AUBH Provost, Dr. Mark. D. Shermis, commented “Our objective is for students to earn locally recognized degrees, with global mobility. This will be accomplished with the AUBH quality mark which is becoming our brand. We also want to make it easy for students to transfer to AUBH so that they can get access to our high-quality programs even if they started at another institution. I am grateful for the Kingdom’s visionary support on education and Bahrain’s key position as the “Best Place for Expatriates” in the 2019 InterNations Expat Survey; and due to this international Students are also starting to seek us out.”
AUBH offers programs in Colleges of Business and Management, Engineering, and Architecture and Design. AUBH’s purpose-built campus in Riffa is a second home to a new caliber of students, nurtured and mentored by hand-picked faculty with the best international and local expertise. As the first American-style University in Bahrain, AUBH takes a unique approach to learning, going beyond imparting knowledge to giving students access to real world scenarios and practical case-based learning. Complete with the latest in learning technology, Library, labs, and a Sports Center, the Campus is alive with the buzz of academic and extra-curricular life, amongst a multi-cultural student body.
