As one of the leading institutions in Central Asia, AUCA maintains partnerships with a number of other prestigious universities in the US, Europe and Asia. Such cooperation provides AUCA students with an opportunity to immerse themselves in cultures, learn a new language, and experience student life in a different university.

Tuition and fees:
While partaking in an exchange program, the student is subject to the tuition fees of their home university. The student is responsible for all other expenses, such as Room and Board, insurance, visa and travel costs etc.
Generally, study abroad credits are transferred as “General credits” or “Electives”. In order to count credits towards your major, you need to first consult with your academic advisor and department chair. AUCA will consider your credit only if you received a grade “C” or higher. Your study abroad grades will not be calculated into your GPA at AUCA.
