heard about AIU for the first time in early May 2017 in a discussion with my
head of sub-office. I later check online to have more information about the
institution and I asked my brother-in-law who lives in the USA to check its
credibility. A few days later, he called me to confirm that it is a credible
university. I therefore proceed by sending an email to know how it works, and
what are the costs of trainings.
What I directly appreciated is the availability of the staff, the kindness in
responding to our questioning (example an email from Edward who ended by saying
never forget that we are here for you) and the quality of the different courses.
Another thing I appreciated is the fact that the courses are totally online,
which represents a huge advantage for me, since I work in a humanitarian field
and it is very difficult for me with my schedule to continue with onsite
AIU also provides a very good documentation, which facilitates learning and
understanding. Even though it is much more focus on the American context, the
contents can be applicable to other contexts.
It is true that the choice to do a Master at AUI was not personally easy for
me, since I have a background of French and it was the first time to study in
English. But I liked a lot, at first I made a friend (Google Translate),
afterwards I continued to make efforts to improve my translation and
understanding of English.
Today, I am happy to have been able to study at AIU and also it is an
institution that I will refer to my friends, especially those who like me, do
not have enough time to attend onsite classes.
