AUK Organizes Open Day for Government Schools

The American University of Kuwait (AUK) organized an information session for approximately 200 government high school students, from five different government schools. During the event, the different University units gave presentations highlighting the world class programs offered at AUK, the diverse student population, as well as student life and campus activities.

The visit was a good opportunity to inform prospective student about future academic and career prospects after they graduate from AUK. Faculty members from the different AUK colleges provided full information on career and graduate study options that graduates can pursue after earning a degree from AUK.

The Center for Continuing education highlighted college preparatory coursework offered to high school seniors prior to college entry exams, while the office of Admissions briefed them about the AUK admissions requirements and took them on campus tours.

Campus life was among the main topics of interest to prospective students. The AUK Office of Student Life highlighted various clubs & organizations, sports programs, and on-campus events that students can take part in during their study term at AUK.

Following the presentations, the visitors had the chance to engage in lively exchange with various members of the AUK community, discussing their inquiries about the government scholarship and Admissions requirements at AUK.

The Office of Admissions at AUK is planning a series of other events this year to raise awareness about the academic offerings, and university life at AUK "This is the first of many AUK community events; our next event will host private high schools in Kuwait in late November" says Maher Dabbouseh, Director of Admissions.

The American University of Kuwait, located in the heart of Salmiya, offers 15 distinct programs under the College of Business and Economics and the College of Arts and Sciences.
