Life at AKU is not all about the classroom

Here's what our students have to say about their experience of being
​ developed as leaders and posi​tive contributors to society

“The days I spent at AKU as a student can aptly be summed up with the proverb: time flies like an arrow. The rigorous course work and crazy deadlines seemed very tough at the time but with hard work and support of amazing faculty, we definitely achieved everything we sought out to. Joining the programme was the best decision of my life."

Dr Mashal Amin, Class of 2019
