A Comprehensive Breakdown of the Year's Statistics

Becoming an alumnus/a of Anglo-American University is an extremely important achievement. On average, 78% of students who enroll in bachelor’s programs at AAU continue on into their second year of studies and a total of 52% successfully complete their studies and graduate within six years of enrollment. Many students terminate their studies because they relocate abroad and choose to transfer to a local university, however, a number of students terminate their studies because they are unable to meet the demands of AAU education. While AAU works diligently to assist each student to reach their full potential and successfully graduate, we cannot compromise the quality of our education by lowering the standards we have set in place.
AAU has three Institutional Learning Outcomes defining what the university expects its graduates to know and be able to do after completing its programs. The university regularly evaluates to what extent graduates meet these goals using scoring rubrics reflecting the US and EU standards. The assessment of graduates’ critical thinking and writing skills conducted by the University over 2013/14 and 2014/15 showed that 77% of AAU BA graduates have critical thinking skills of average and higher quality (3 and better on a 5-point scale), with 50% being good or very good; 86% of AAU BA graduates are able to write at an average and better level, with 60% good or very good. In 2015/16 AAU assessed the third ILO focused on ‘Action’, or preparedness of our students to apply the acquired knowledge. The analysis showed that nearly 57% of students have had job experience related to studies during their studies and that 64% of graduating students were employed in their last semester of studies.
