Message from the President

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the American University of Ras al Khaimah.

We at the American University of Ras Al Khaimah (AURAK) are very proud to be a public, non-profit institution of higher education. This means that we care more about our students and their learning, growth, and success than we do about profit.

Our mission is to give you, our students, all that you require to succeed in your professional lives. As a liberal arts university, however, we aim to give you far more than mere knowledge and learning about only your chosen majors. Our students must take many required General Education courses outside of their chosen majors, courses designed to produce successful, ever-learning and ever-adapting, happy human beings and global citizens who can caringly and ethically contribute to the betterment of their communities and countries and who can also educate their children to do the same for all future generations, especially in the Middle East.

In our goal to give our students all this and even more, AURAK, of course, depends upon highly qualified and committed support staff and faculty from around the world who know how to best serve our students.

We welcome your interest in AURAK. Please browse our website.  Should you need any further information, please feel free to contact us by e-mail, phone, or visit our campus.

We truly want to help you achieve your goals and dreams, and promise to do so.


Professor Hassan Hamdan Al Alkim
