General Studies Program:

The General Studies Program is an intensive, two-year long pre-undergraduate program at Asian University for Women, and will be exclusively geared towards matriculating students recruited from Afghanistan and diasporic Rohingya refugee communities into the University’s undergraduate program. AUW’s undergraduate program is an English-medium, American-style liberal arts and sciences program, with a focus on achieving outstanding academic scholarship, devotion to public service, and exemplary leadership. AUW recruits students who demonstrate courage, outrage at injustice, and deep compassion for those who may be powerless.

The focus of the General Studies Program is to develop students’ training in English (and other basic fields) so they can engage with material and participate in English-medium classes in a variety of academic subjects including mathematics and computer sciences. After completing one-year of intensive English and achieving a minimum score of 7.0 in the IELTS, students will continue for an additional year in the General Studies Program. With the successful achievement of a grade of B or higher in International General Certificate Exams for selected subjects such as English Language, Maths B and Computer Sciences, students will enter into AUW’s undergraduate program to pursue a Bachelor of Arts or Sciences.
