    Transfer Applicants

    Many students studying abroad have transferred to Au. Others, after completing one, two or sometimes three years at Au, transfer their credits abroad and complete their degrees in a U.S., Australian or UK university.

    Students transferring into Au often do so because of Au’s significant cost advantage, in addition to the “best in class” education. They have found that studying in the US or Europe has become too expensive and that their families find it difficult to afford the high tuition and living costs associated with an overseas education. Many students who initially wanted to transfer abroad after several years at Au change their minds, but those who decide to transfer are accepted far and wide and have little, if any, problem in completing their degrees from abroad. These students earn a western degree at a greatly reduced cost.

    All Au students pay the same tuition fees. Living costs in Thailand are a fraction of those found in Europe, Australia, or the U.S. Many students want to receive their baccalaureate degrees from a western university, but cannot afford the cost. These students come to Au where they can study for one, two or three years and then transfer abroad. Their total educational cost is thus substantially reduced and they gain from both experiences.

    Au students have transferred credits and completed their baccalaureates at many US, UK and Australian universities such as: (only a partial listing)

    The Johns Hopkins University ( Maryland)

    Texas A&M University ( College Station)

    University of Maryland ( College Park)

    Southern Illinois University ( Carbondale)

    St. Michael’s College ( Vermont)

    Loyola College ( Maryland)

    Pittsburgh State University ( Kansas)

    Georgetown University ( Washington D.C.)

    University of Wollongong ( Australia)

    Richmond , The American International University in London


    The above is only a partial listing of universities where transfer students have been welcomed. The European Community and Australia are now working on developing a credit exchange that can accommodate a system such as Au’s. When this is in place, more transfer opportunities will be possible.
