American University in the Emirates encourages students to actively engage in co-curricular as well as extra-curricular activities on Campus. To maintain the zest of such activities and to encourage involvement students are welcome to propose events that they wish  to arrange, at all times. Such ideas will be considered in detail, in order to decide upon the scope and practicability of the proposed event. The Division of Student Affairs also maintains a year round calendar a range of events, such as Fun Night, Global/ Carnival Day, National Day, Car Show, New Student Orientation, and Career Fair.

The students of AUE have a very strong football team, and training is done under an expert coach. Everyone is invited to note the results of football matches played by AUE football players and their excellent winning track record.

Basketball for female and male students, a Running Club and a Volley Ball team constitute some of the initiatives underway. All AUE athletes receive a substantial discount on their tuition fee as a reward for representing the American University in the Emirates in many ways.

Students Council

The AUE Students Council works to advance the interests of all Colleges throughout the University, to promote student participation and involvement in clubs and organizations, to organize social, cultural and academic activities and/or programs, and to provide assistance and support for the activities and programs sponsored by our Division of Student Affairs.

Career Development workshops during which the students are provided with help in CV building, attending job interviews, and salary negotiation skills, for example, are frequently scheduled for the benefit of AUE students, increasing their opportunities for employment and promotion.

Career Fairs

A Career Fair represents a great opportunity for students to meet prospective employers in an informal setting, and to learn more about job and internship opportunities offered by companies, government agencies, and non-profit organizations where they might wish to work. Some employers are focused on students from specific Colleges or majors, but many are interested in students from a broad range of disciplines. AUE arranges a career fair every year in the month of February, and invites a range of organizations that interest most students, allowing them to explore career interests while enjoying networking and recruitment opportunities.
