Important Resources and Information

 

In September 2017, Hurricane Irma had a major impact on Sint Maarten, home to AUC’s medical sciences campus. Determined to enable our students to proceed with their studies, AUC partnered with the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) in Preston, United Kingdom to hold the September 2017 semester while the university worked on plans to return classes to Sint Maarten as soon as possible. The entire AUC community demonstrated tremendous resilience and strength during this challenging time.

AUC has now begun a phased return to Sint Maarten, starting with the January 2018 semester. Classes for students in semesters 1-3 will be held in Sint Maarten, while classes for semesters 4-5 will be held at UCLan in Preston. AUC will have faculty in both locations to teach their courses, as well as support services.
