The American University of Bahrain

The American University of Bahrain (AUBH) is the first comprehensive, purpose-built, American-style co-educational university in the Kingdom of Bahrain that opened its doors in 2019. AUBH offers a range of degree programs from engineering and business to architecture and design. Part of the University’s mission is to encourage and facilitate diversity through intellectual engagement and critical thinking. As the Kingdom of Bahrain works towards a knowledge-based economy, both Bahraini and international students must be prepared to compete and thrive in order to meet the ever-growing challenges that face the world today.

Just this past year, AUBH announced an academic partnership with California State University, Northridge to offer students a range of opportunities to study abroad, globalize their curriculum and internationalize their overall experiences. AUBH is seeking accreditation with one of the six U.S. regional accreditors recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), holding the highest level of quality assurance at the institutional level. The Kingdom of Bahrain continues to be at the forefront of innovation, collaboration and partnerships within the education sector.
