AU Chennai campus

The campus of AU Chennai is located in Chennai. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. During the period of study, students can use the university library, where they can do homework and write scientific papers. Foreigners who come to AU Chennai through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
