The University and all our academic programs are fully accredited by ARACIS and the degree granted is Internationally recognized.

Creativity and innovation skills are pursued and multicultural environments and intercultural competences are targeted. Students’ entrepreneurial spirit is fostered and facilities for business (start-up) support are available. Numerous courses, lectures and presentations given by exchange professors from Europe and the US encourage the students’ active engagement with global thought leaders.

The RAU teaching, learning and research activities are carried out in a modern campus structure endowed with a wide range of facilities, from purpose-built classrooms and laboratories, WiFi and IT suites to well-stocked libraries, high-quality food service units and cafeteria, as well as excellent en-suite accommodation.

The University encourages its students to explore Romanian scenery and traditions in specially organized trips (2-3 days) several times a year. There is also a rafting trip planned each summer for students and professors alike, in order to enjoy nature seasoned with some adrenalin rush.
