American University of Afghanistan starts courses in Nangarhar

AfghanU1By Ahmadshah Ghanizada-The American University of Afghanistan (AUAF) will start courses in eastern Nangarhar province of Afghanistan in the near future.

According to the University officials, similar courses have already been launched in southern Kandahar and northern Balkh province of Afghanistan.

Dr. Michael Smith, President of the American University of Afghanistan (AUAF) quoted in a report by Voice of America (VOA) Dari said around 2000 students from various parts of the country are currently studying in American University of Afghanistan.

Dr. Smith said the University is charging less fees and has kept the expenses at lower level, considering the weak economy of the Afghan youths.

According to Dr. Smith, the university graduates are having good communication skills in English language besides they are well qualified in accounting, information technology, computer science and other fields.

He said the graduates are offered job opportunities and some of them are even offered jobs while they are studying in the university.

Dr. Smith also added that the American University of Afghanistan (AUAF) is a non-profit organization and majority of its lecturers are Afghans.

He said AUAF is registered with the Ministry of Higher Education of Afghanistan and operates in accordance with the ministry’s regulations.
