About International Students Support


AUCA is unique not only to Kyrgyzstan, but to the region as a whole, offering students from Kyrgyzstan - as well as international students from around the world - an opportunity to study in an atmosphere which encourages them to develop their minds freely and to think critically. They choose their courses and majors from among 11 major programs, including American Studies, Business Administration, Anthropology, Economics, European Studies, International and Comparative Politics, Journalism, Law, Psychology, Sociology, Software Engineering, Sustainable Development, and Human Rights.

The student body currently numbers approximately 1,300. AUCA has a highly trained faculty, with professors from Kyrgyzstan and the United States as well as Australia, Canada, Egypt, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Malaysia, Romania, Russia, and Turkey. The student to faculty ratio 10:1, meaning that students enjoy individualized instruction and the opportunity to work closely with professors.

International Student Office helps AUCA and international students achieve their educational and personal goals. The office advises local students on study abroad programs and helps international students on all matters pertaining to their legal status, cultural, social, educational, and personal concerns in Kyrgyzstan. International Student Office at AUCA works to prepare incoming exchange students for the AUCA experience and provides information to permanent AUCA students on opportunities available to study abroad at AUCA's numerous partner universities.

International visiting and exchange students come to AUCA, usually, for a semester or a year.  If you are a visiting or exchange student from another country, your primary point of contact at AUCA is the International Students Office (ISO). If you are a student from North American colleges and universities, you can apply to AUCA Study Abroad through Bard College only.
