About Us



Since the creation of the program 19 years ago, more than 950 participants from 38 nationalities have enrolled to learn Arabic and explore the Moroccan culture. Located in the Middle Atlas Mountains in Ifrane, the ARANAS program offers a unique view at Morocco that is known to be different from one region to another.

The ARANAS program at Al Akhawayn University provides students with a less overwhelming experience that allows participants to get to know the culture while permitting them the room necessary to adjust in the new environment.

Our campus is a tight-knit, global community where ARANAS students are able to mix with other Moroccan students maximizing their cultural exchange and enriching their cultural experience even further.
