AUS welcomes visiting students to direct-enroll in classes over the summer semester. Accepted students are welcome to register for any summer course, provided they have the appropriate prerequisites and there is space available within the course. The schedule of courses offered will typically be available mid-March each year here. Please note that we cannot guarantee that all listed courses will run in the summer session, as AUS cancels courses without the minimum enrollment of 10 students.
