Program Overview

Al Akhawayn University (AUI) is located in the beautiful resort community of Ifrane in the wooded Middle Atlas Mountains about 37 miles from Fez, a formerly rich imperial city and now a protected World Heritage site. Ifrane, located in an area known for its beautiful forests, mountains, lakes, and streams, provides an excellent backdrop for both intellectual and physical pursuits.
 
Studying in Morocco allows students the unique opportunity to interact with a mix of cultures in a non-traditional study abroad setting. Moroccan cultural diversity is reflected through both the large number of spoken languages and the eclectic ancestry of Moroccan people that includes French, Spaniards, Arabs, Jews, and Berbers.

The opportunities to experience this diversity by exploring ancient cities, beautiful beaches, and exquisite religious monuments are endless. Within easy reach are the great historic cities of Fez, Meknes, and Volubillis.

Adventures abroad

Jeremy Fowler

My time in Morocco helped to make Arabic a part of me and it was exciting to put my language skills to practice. Travel a lot, take advantage of nearby cities like Fez, a place full of exciting and challenging experiences.

Jason Walker

My favorite memories of Morocco were the wonderful people and friends I met, learning the ancient and beautiful language of Arabic, the cities of Chefchaouen and Fes and all their delights, and of course climbing Jebel Toubkal, a 4,000-meter peak in the Sahara Desert.
