Students who elect to study abroad in Sharjah with API will enroll at the American University of Sharjah (AUS) and choose from a range of undergraduate classes open to Emirati and international students.
AUS awards credit in similar fashion to most U.S. universities. Students usually take 2 classes in order to receive 6 credit hours per semester, or 3 semester credits per course.
