Student Exchange Programs

Exchange Students

We have established partnerships with prestigious international universities to provide students with more opportunities for higher-language development and cultural immersion.

American University in Cairo, Cairo, Egypt

Every semester, a limited number of students may attend one of the top universities in the Middle East, American University in Cairo. Students can take classes in the areas of business, policy and Arabic language. This program is intended for students studying the Arabic language.

**The Monterey Institute hosted three Egyptian students from AU Cairo for the Fall 2011 semester, while one Monterey Institute student studied in Cairo. After a brief hiatus this spring, due to political instability in Egypt, the program has been renewed for the Fall 2012 semester.
