AUBH launched a holistic solution for students to transfer the maximum number of credits to AUBH degree programs.

This will be accomplished with the AUBH quality mark which is becoming our brand. We also want to make it easy for students to transfer to AUBH so that they can get access to our high-quality programs even if they started at another institution. I am grateful for the Kingdom’s visionary support on education and Bahrain’s key position as the “Best Place for Expatriates” in the 2019 InterNations Expat Survey; and due to this international Students are also starting to seek us out.”
