Tuition and Fees

AUIS is a private, not-for-profit university operated for the public benefit of the Kurdistan Region and Iraq. To help talented students attend, the University subsidizes a large portion of the cost of students' education. On average more than 40% of the cost of an AUIS student’s education is paid for by outside sponsors, gifts and grants. 

In general, the higher a student’s score on the KRG/Iraq Baccalaureate exam, the lower the tuition rate paid by the student.
