The rapid trend toward globalization poses new challenges while offering exceptional opportunities. In a world of greater economic integration and political and social interdependence, internationalization expands the walls of the institution and offers an opportunity to gain first-hand experience in the larger global community. The American University in Cairo is proud to be part of a longstanding and deep commitment to international education to help students become active leaders and conscientious members of an increasingly global society.
The Office of International Programs and Services (IPSO) administers the announcement, recruitment, and selection of AUC students for exchange/study abroad opportunities, provided in light of the University agreements with partner universities across the globe. Through this program, we aim to add to the students' academic and professional experience. We also hope to send students who can represent AUC abroad, and bring back valuable experiences to our campus, which will eventually promote the internationalization of AUC.
