Director of Admissions and Student Recruitment:
Education is the bedrock of social and economic development. Today’s college students want an educational system which goes beyond the mere acquisition of bookish knowledge, one which develops self-discipline and leadership skills, provides courage and confidence to take on challenges, develops an analytical and inquiring approach to problems and above all makes a good human being.
The Asian University for Women (AUW) seeks to graduate women who will be skilled and innovative professionals, service-oriented leaders in the businesses and communities in which they will work and live,and promoters of intercultural understanding and sustainable human and economic development in Asia and throughout the world.
At AUW, we prepare our students for their roles as global citizens by offering an intellectually challenging liberal arts undergraduate curriculum leading to Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees. Our undergraduate program blends the best of liberal arts education into a curriculum that speaks to Asia and beyond. We aim to prepare competent leaders for the future. We provide an education that extends beyond the parameters of the classroom curriculum, and the opportunity to hone leadership skills through engagements in societies, clubs and Student Government.
This book will give you a glimpse into student life on our campus and thus help you make your decision. As you read about each of these young women, I hope you will see our University’s unique character reflected in our students’ extraordinary voices, profiles and goals. You can explore options in terms of different majors, our admissions requirements, financial aid options, residential life and hopefully provide all other information that will assist you in making the decision to study at AUW.As a student at AUW, you will live and attend classes with young women from 16 countries and from varied cultural and religious backgrounds. Your professors come from the best universities in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and Asia. Women leaders like Anuradha Koirala and Dr. Kiran Bedi visit the university to speak and interact with our students as part of our Extraordinary Women & Their Voices seminar series. We provide opportunities for you to spend your summers engaged in research projects, internships and academic programs around the world. And we prepare you for graduate school, for careers and for leadership roles at the local, national and international level.
This is the time to spread your wings, to widen your social circle and nurture friendships bolstered by an education that will last a life time.
