Program Description:
What is 'Ashab?

The word ‘Ashab comes from the Arabic meaning of “Friends.” ‘Ashab is a program that gives an opportunity for international connection between students who have come from abroad and those that are already a resident in the UAE. 

Through this program incoming international exchange students will be matched with a current AUS student. Students will be asked a set of questions to get a sense of their personality and will be matched with a student who has most compatible answers.

Both incoming international exchange students and AUS students are encouraged to apply for this program by clicking the 'Apply Now' button.

How to Apply

If you are an AUS student and have never logged into this site before, you will be prompted to indicate you do not yet have login credentials, and you are registered at AUS.  You will then provide a few fields of information about yourself to create an account, and a password will be emailed to you so you can login and apply.

Incoming exchange students can use the same login credentials to apply for the 'Ashab program that they used to apply to study at AUS. After clicking 'Apply Now', incoming exchange students should indicate they already have login credentials that were provided by email, and then use your familiar login credentials to login.
