Al Akhawayn University: a place for training international athletes


Al Akhawayn University congratulates Morocco’s National Handball team for qualifying for the World Cup championship, which was held in Tunisia earlier this month. AUI is proud to have hosted this successful team for their training camps in preparation for the World Cup. The players spent periods of time on campus in Ifrane from December 2nd until the 26th of last year. AUI is grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with the National Handball team and share in their celebration of achievement.   


Nestled at the heart of the Middle Atlas forest at about 1700m of altitude, AUI provides peace and tranquility. AUI is an ideal place for studies, along with physical preparation, training, and sports of all kinds. It is a perfect setting to relax and unwind. 

AUI’s location in the small town of Ifrane gives it the additional benefit of an excellent, pollution-free climate. This climate attracts Moroccan and international athletes alike, alongside champions from different disciplines to undergo their training and participation
