About the American University of Phnom Penh

The history of AUPP welcomed its first class in August 2013, and in consultation with several U.S. universities, has shown dynamic growth and development in creating excellent academic programs and a wide-range of student opportunities with regional and international internships, community services, and non-curricular cultural experiences. Through the efforts of our faculty, students, and staff, AUPP is realizing its vision to provide a center of academic excellence for Cambodia. The university reaffirms its commitment to the students and parents in imparting university-wide values of high academic expectations, accountability, equity, integrity, and personal responsibility.

To consolidate its vision as the leading academic center of excellence in Cambodia and Asia, AUPP introduced the dual degree program model in the summer of 2016 with its partner universities in the USA, the University of Arizona (UA) and the Fort Hayes States University. This dual degree program is a U.S. accredited program whereby upon graduation the students obtain two degrees at the same time. One degree is issued by AUPP and the other from the UA.
