The mission of the Academic Preparatory Program (APP) at the American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS) is to prepare non-native English-speaking high school graduates to enter the AUIS undergraduate program by teaching them academic English, critical thinking skills and study habits, as well as math skills. Our goal is to insure that upon completion of the Program, students have the necessary proficiency in English reading, speaking, and writing, as well as university-level math skills and awareness of academic cultural norms and expectations to succeed in their first year of undergraduate studies at AUIS.
All APP instructors are native English speakers with experience in teaching second-language learners. Classes allow for one-on-one work with teachers and pair and group work with other students. Instruction style varies depending on the subject being taught.
