AUIS accepts applications at any time.
We accept applications throughout the year and process applications immediately. The Admissions Office will inform students of follow-up placement test times usually within one week.
Once admitted, students will be eligible to apply for need-based financial aid. They may even qualify for merit-based scholarships if they have high test scores and demonstrate exceptional potential.
To seek admission into AUIS, please submit the following information to the Office of Admissions by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or in person by visiting the Office of Admissions on the AUIS campus in Sulaimani.

Your score on the English Placement Test will determine your placement at AUIS: students who need more English training before joining the academic program will be placed in one of four levels of our Academic Preparatory Program. Students whose skills in speaking, reading, and writing English, as demonstrated on our Academic Entrance Exam, are strong enough to qualify for college-level work, will enter the first semester of the academic program.
- An interview with one of our admissions counselors is recommended and may in some instances be required.
Any application that is found to contain false or misleading information will result in the rejection of the student’s application. All application materials are the property of AUIS and cannot be returned to applicants.
