Career opportunities

The internship is part of the curriculum and aimed at providing the students with an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills from the work experience carefully curated by AUK and University partners network and expand the set of competencies valued by top-ranked employers. The locations of internships and occupations are directly related to the student's program of study and allow to get a real-world, career-related practice and learning experience not available in the classroom.

This practice will be conducted as a blended learning activity offline or online involvement in the activities of a particular company, supervised simultaneously by the Internship Education Program Advisor and Employer Representative.

The student will work closely with the Employer Representative and Internship Education Program Advisor to seek relevant experiences and develop job-seeking skills as part of the internship education experience. With permission of the Employer Representative (further Supervisor), a job currently held by a student might be used as the work assignment.

At the end of the internship, a student should prepare a full report of activities taking place during the internship and primary data collected on a certain topic or in a certain area of interest related to the chosen career field.

Dual Degree Route and ASU Pathways

Dual degree options make top-quality education accessible for Ukrainian students at AUK. Through a combination of online and offline study, you have the opportunity to gain diplomas from both American University Kyiv and Arizona State University.

You can also choose to study on campus in the U.S. or online at Arizona State University.

AUK Degree

4 years studying at AUK, a student gets AUK Bachelor’s degree in Software Engineering.

Dual Degree (AUK+ASU)

This program supports dual degrees via model 3+1:

3 years studying at AUK and 1 last year studying at ASU. After successful graduation student gets two Bachelor’s diplomas from AUK and ASU.

ASU Pathways

Being a Bachelor’s student of Software Engineering at AUK you can gain the dual Bachelor’s degree option (3+1): 3 years studying at AUK + 1 year studying at ASU. Upon successful completion of all coursework, it implies for students to receive a Bachelor’s degree from AUK and a Bachelor’s degree from ASU.

For enrolled students in September 2022, one year of studying at ASU is available online and its enrollment is planned for Spring 2026.

Students of Software Engineering should be prepared to apply to Arizona State University in the third year of study (the 5th semester of study at AUK). The study at ASU will start in September 2026 (the 7th semester of study in the Bachelor’s program of Software Engineering).

AUK is an opportunity for me to continue my American education without having to leave my homeland. I love studying and believe that western-style education creates the best frame of mind for learning. I really hope that AUK becomes an active platform for reforming Ukrainian higher education, so that we may truly become a first world nation. Everything starts with the education of people.

I can sum up American University Kyiv in three words: cozy, practical, and contemporary. Thanks to the welcoming staff and professors who serve as both information providers and mentors during your studies, everyone feels at home at AUK. In other universities, it's standard practice for students to spend most of their time learning theory and doing little or no practical work. Therefore, by the time students graduate, they won't know how to apply all this theoretical knowledge to real-world situations. At AUK the opposite is true. Here you get a lot of experience. You gain confidence and an understanding of how to apply all of the knowledge you learned at the university to real-world situations. AUK’s contemporary approach to education creates the value and appeal of higher education for me.
