Program Description:
Al Akhawayn University (AUI) is located in the beautiful resort community of Ifrane in the wooded Middle Atlas Mountains about 37 miles from Fez, a formerly rich imperial city and now a protected World Heritage site.  Ifrane, located in an area known for its beautiful forests, mountains, lakes, and streams, provides an excellent backdrop for both intellectual and physical pursuits.

Al Akhawayn University (AUI) was founded in 1995 as a private university by King Hassan II of Morocco with contributing financial support from King Fahd of Saudi Arabia. It is the first and only English language university in Morocco developed on the model of US higher education. AUI is grounded in African, Arab, and Islamic culture and models its organizational structure, curriculum, language, and teaching methods on the American system of higher education. All classes are taught in English, allowing students interested in learning the Arabic language to simultaneously take courses in their field of study.
