AABP celebrates the achievements of 55 students in language proficiency and extra-curricular activities
Students and their families logged on from all across the world to participate in the Achievement Academy Bridge Program (AABP) Annual award ceremony held virtually on May 14 at American University of Sharjah (AUS). Fifty five students were recognized at the event for their academic achievements and significant progress in English language proficiency, and for extracurricular activities and volunteerism.
Held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the online ceremony provided a welcome opportunity for family members of students from outside the UAE to be part of the celebrations. The event was attended by students and their loved ones from as far away as Russia, Egypt, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and a host of other countries.
Speaking on the occasion, Jessica March, Director of the Achievement Academy, said:
“The AABP offers students the opportunity to improve their English language proficiency, develop their study skills, and take preparatory math and physics courses at the heart of the AUS community. Even more, studying in the AABP allows students to make firm friendship networks, adapt to university life, and learn how to perform effectively in a higher education setting.”
She added: “Students appreciate the strong sense of community and support in the AABP. Many say that it feels like a family and return regularly to volunteer at AABP events. We see students grow in confidence and we encourage them to explore all the opportunities which are available to them at AUS.”
