The American University in Kosovo is Kosovo’s only private, not-for-profit university, and is the only Kosovo university teaching entirely in the English language.
AUK is the only university whose degrees are accredited and recognized worldwide, thanks to our partnership with the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in New York state.
While our home is in Kosovo, and we are committed to developing Kosovo’s economy through education, we measure ourselves against the leading universities of Southeast Europe and the world. AUK students come from 17 different countries around the world.
AUK delivers the same excellent standard of American higher education that students receive at RIT – the same degree, syllabus, exams and grading standards – taught by many of the same faculty members.
