Why has AU been a good match for you?.
Before coming to AU, I was an international affairs officer in the Israeli Navy. I have always wanted to study international affairs and work for the IsraeliMinistry of Foreign Affairs and AU was the perfect match; a well known School of International Service, and situated in the best location – Washington, DC.


Tell us about an unexpected discovery that you made when you came to AU.
AU has a big international community, so on top of my studying abroad experience, I am able to meet people from around the world, to learn about their culture and to make amazing connections.


Where on campus have you found support or mentorship?
AU encourages you to explore different fields of study before you decide in your major and offers a wide network of support for international students to adjust to the new study environment.
