American University in Cairo (AUC) - Summer

A large number of students from Egypt and from more than thirty other countries normally attend AUC's summer session. While the majority are pursuing degrees at AUC during the academic year, many students who are not regularly enrolled at AUC join the summer session from the second week of June through the third week of July to pursue studies of their own interest. Summer A begins the second week of June and Summer B begins the first week of July; each session lasts for three weeks.

Students can choose from a wide range of courses which are usually offered during the AUC summer session.

Intensive courses at all levels in modern standard Arabic and in Egyptian colloquial Arabic are also offered during the summer session by AUC's Arabic Language Institute. This brings to the AUC campus more students from the United States and other countries to share with Egyptian students a truly international educational experience.

Extracurricular activities are planned for the students and faculty, including trips and cultural events, such as performances of Arabic music and art shows. An informal athletic program offers basketball, volleyball, tennis, soccer, and table tennis. Seminars and special lectures by distinguished visitors are also an occasional part of the summer and winter sessions.

Housing, board, medical, and other university services are provided on the same basis as during the academic year.
