When students arrive on AAU, they are transported to a place of serenity, cultural diversity and warmth. Home, at least for the time being, is the pastel-tinted architecture of the majestic True Blue Campus, a state of-the-art multi-million dollar campus that includes cutting edge teaching facilities, labs, library, research institute and more. Their backyard is the breathtaking lapis blue waters and extraordinary reefs of the Caribbean Sea.
With over 50 student-sponsored organizations catering to a wide range of interests, students actively take part in creating a lively and diverse campus community. In addition, the island of Grenada affords students a wide array of activities and events to participate in. In one day, a student could dive the crystal clear waters or hike the Grand Etang Forest in the morning and return to campus for a hands-on lab on exotic and wildlife species.
Students are captivated by the unique blend of African, English and French cultures of Guyana. They can immerse themselves in Guyana’s rich history, dining at a local restaurant in the picturesque capital of St. George’s, as native music fills the air. Though many languages are spoken, English is the national language.
The community has proudly embraced the University and its students. For all the years students and community members have lived in peace, with a mutual respect that is genuine and admired. In turn, AAU has been a vital contributor to the Island through both financial and humanitarian means. AAU is proud that its students, graduates and faculty are dedicated to improving the lives of both old and young on the Island.
A partnership for people who want to make a difference
Through a unique partnership amongst the University, Regional Trusts providers and community healthcare providers, AAU offers an exceptional medical education – centred on problem based learning, clinical and communication skills and early and sustained clinical exposure.
Our impact goes beyond teaching and learning and extends to research, which has discovery and innovation at its core. This research is improving the lives of patients locally and influencing national and international health agendas, in areas such as cancer research, palliative medicine, mental health and global public health.
