Overall Experience
A stronger perspective on Middle Eastern issues and the cultural variances within the region, that will be helpful in future academic and job endeavours. I also was able to have a greater understanding of the countless different world lenses that are used in both academia and professional work settings, by interacting with inter... - Simon Fraser University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with American University of Sharjah: Sharjah - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
My courses were enlightening because the students in my classes had personal experiences that they offered which I would not have gotten at home (in courses like Arab history, middle eastern politics). I made amazing friends - most of which were other American exchange students, however some friends were local students. The scho... - American University View Entire Review

lack of coordination and support overall outside of the classroom. - American University of Sharjah View Entire Review
I learned that I can rise up to any challenge and usually overcome. It was rough at the start but in the end I would say it was all worth it. - Bridgewater College View Entire Review

I learned to put myself out there. I learned not to be intimidated by other lands and cultures and to make the most of my experiences. - George Washington University View Entire Review
I learned how to be more independent and get around in a foreign country on my own. I learned how to really self-advocate and stay on top of people especially when it comes to important documents (visa information, passports, etc.) It was definitely worthwhile and I would do it all over again if I could. - American University of Sharjah View Entire Review

My experience reassured my love for cultures and people. It reawakened a drive for learning and for travel. I was finally able to experience Middle Eastern culture and Islam first hand and was able to put all my fears, which stemmed from Western propaganda, to rest. I was able to make friends that I aim to keep for the rest o... - Villanova University View Entire Review
It was totally worthwhile because I made life-long friendships and it opened my eyes to a totally different culture. Boundaries between cultures were broken. - Louisiana State University - Baton Rouge View Entire Review

About

Sharjah is a neighboring Emirate to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, and has been recognized as Arab Tourism Capital in 2015, as well as the Capital of Islamic Culture for 2014 (by the Islamic Organization for Education, Science and Culture (ISESCO)). With its blend of traditional and modern, it is an ideal destination for business, engineering and humanities students.  Life at the American University of Sharjah is extremely multicultural - we have 94 nationalities on campus!   That means that while you are here, you not only learn about the Emirati culture (which of course, you do!), but you gain direct exposure to the entire spectrum of the Arab/Islamic world, and beyond! 

Studying abroad at the American University of Sharjah (AUS) allows you to direct enroll in high quality courses in your major discipline, while studying Arabic and learning about the Gulf Arab, Islamic and Middle Eastern cultures. The AUS campus is located at the intersection of four very different worlds: the traditional Arab city of Sharjah, named by UNESCO as the Cultural Capital of the Arab World in 1998; the bustling metropolis of Dubai, widely known for icons such as the tallest building in the world, an indoor ski slope, and palm islands; the wide open desert where students can experience a desert safari, ride camels, and experience life as a Bedouin; and finally the Indian Ocean resort shoreline where snorkeling and traditional water sports abound.
