International Incoming students

International students wish to study at Al Akhawayn University have 3 options:

1. Obtain a bachelor’s or master degree from AUI.

Apply and enroll for a full time study program at Al Akhawayn University to complete either a bachelor’s degree or master degree, use this link

 Students wishing to study just for one or two semesters should look at the next options.


2. Study Abroad Programs (including exchange)

If you know your home institution has an existing exchange or study abroad arrangement with AUI, then contact your study abroad advisor/coordinator to find out how to apply and whether a place is available for the upcoming semester.  You must be nominated and your study abroad advisor/coordinator will provide you with the AUI link to the online application for AUI.

The deadline for nominations for the fall semester or summer session is 15 March and for the spring semester 15 October.

You can check the list of institutions with bilateral exchanges programs and multilateral programs via ISEP here 

Please aware in the case where both a bilateral and a multilateral exchange exists that the bilateral arrangement takes precedence.  If you have questions about this, contact your study abroad advisor. 

3. Other Visiting Students

For students from institutions that have no exchange or study abroad arrangement with AUI but wish to study at AUI for a semester or summer, go to your International Office and check with the Study Abroad Coordinator/Advisor of institution to check if there is an agreement or an approved study abroad provider for Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane. In all cases find out the procedure at your college/university for students who would like to study abroad.

If there is no formal arrangement or linkage between our institutions then a conversation between the international offices regarding your study plan followed by a letter of nomination by your international officer is in most cases sufficient to proceed. 

Once you are officially nominated by your university/college, they will inform us of your name and e-mail address and then we will send you an email with a link to our online application form.

Complete the online application before the given deadline and have your official transcript sent to us. If you meet all the requirements, you will receive an acceptation by email from the Office of International Programs.

Once admitted to Al Akhawayn University, the Office of international programs at AUI is the central contact point for visiting international students and informs incoming students about all the required steps and procedures concerning arrival plans at AUI, housing reservation and course registration.

Degree seeking international students must maintain regular contact for residency documents and procedures required by the Moroccan government.
