AIU Additional Features
Resources and tools accessible to the AIU community:
My AIU Elements
MyAIU’s primary goal is to go beyond Academics, it looks to guide students through 11 elements that are key to living life optimally in all aspects. By identifying and reflecting on these key areas, an opportunity arises to holistically address them, through positive change, habits, reinforcement and tools to keep students on their chosen path. These self-reflections and the actions that accompany them are a vital part of living a healthy, happy, fulfilling and prosperous life and are part of the AIU journey resulting in the ideal AIU Alumni.
AIU TV & Radio
The students have the opportunity to produce, edit and host their own show reaching a worldwide audience, the AIU community and giving notice of their expertise/passion in the subject. AIUTV & AIU Radio allow students to explore new ways to communicate, develop a platform and form potential collaboration with likeminded individuals.

The Goal is a highly targeted curriculum with relevant academic content. During Phase One of the program students define the content of their academic journey keeping in mind their past, present, and most importantly future goals. Thus the program seeks for each student to define their future goals, dreams and work towards achieving them as part of their AIU journey. Whether we are conscious of it or not, we all seek a purpose in life and the AIU Pledge encourages students to find it and discover the rewards of doing what they were always meant to do in life.
AIU is working on the UN's sustainable development goals by 2030.
AIU focuses on the empowerment of its student towards the convergence of the world’s sustainable development. At AIU, we know each student is unique and unrepeatable and capable or improving the world we live in. Thousands of resources are available to our students in order to support their efforts to achieve UN 2030 goals in their communities, countries, and globally. AIU has been working to improve our world every day by supporting our students since 1998. AIU is proud of its +6,000 Alumni from over 160 countries.
As a University founded on the ideals that education is a human right it is imperative that we realize that a significant portion of the world population lacks basic necessities to guarantee their human rights. Thus, through the AIU Pledge found in MYAIU, we ask students to make a commitment/pledge to contribute by finding synergies in what they do personally and professionally that can contribute to achieving the 17 UNESCO 2030 Goals.
