Program Requirements

AUIS complies with the admissions standards published by the KRG Ministry of Higher Education on annual basis.

Please Note: Applicants to AUIS are not required to commit to an academic program during the admissions process. Students enrolled at AUIS have until the end of their second academic year to declare a major. 

To be admitted to the University, students must demonstrate a minimum level of English proficiency. Please visit the English Requirements page for more information.

In order to be approved into a major, a student must meet the admissions requirements set forth in their admissions year. This is documented in their admissions contract.

AUIS also reserves the right, if it sees fit, to enforce program-specific internal requirements.
