Admissions

The admissions process at the American Institute of Applied Sciences in Switzerland (AUS) works towards a balance between the inclusivity and selectivity principles innate in admissions processes around the world. As such, AUS is meticulous in ensuring that students who are accepted have the skills and capabilities to succeed in its programs.

Overview

AUS aims to offer an admissions process that is fair, transparent and provides equal opportunity to applicants. Applicants are admitted on the basis of their individual merits, abilities, and aptitudes while meeting established minimum eligibility criteria. However, AUS recognizes and acknowledges that not all applicants have equal opportunity to demonstrate their full academic potential and will take into consideration the contexts and circumstances that surround individual applications.

Assessing applicants’ backgrounds is deemed crucial in understanding aptitude differences and as such to balance inclusivity and selectivity principles without seeing diversity as a substitute for equality or considered at the expense of it.

AUS’s admissions practices take into account its educational partnerships with international institutions, and the quality assurance strategy that guides its operations.

AUS endeavors to offer clear advice and guidance to all applicants and stakeholders, such as parents or legal representatives, to enable them to make informed choices and apply to programs that are in line with their personal academic choices, interests, qualifications, prior learnings, and potentials.

The admission to programs is subject to availability and eligibility. AUS reserves the right to reject applicants who do not meet the necessary minimum requirements for admission.
