Our University exists and obtains excellence only through and for the people. By joint and ongoing performance of all the members of the academic community, the Romanian-American University preserves and benefits from its good name, being one of the most respected private universities in Romania and a trustworthy partner for countless international universities, business communities and local and international organizations.”

Costel Negricea, Ph.D. Professor, RAU Rector

“Not only does Global Campus help solve the mobility challenges of today caused by COVID-19, it is a meaningful and long-term effort at meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goal of providing accessible quality education to the world.”

Robert C. Robbins, University of Arizona President

 

Students can choose from two options:

  • Complete a full U.S. undergraduate degree, graduate degree or graduate certificate online with complete access to the RAU campus.
  • Enroll in a pathway program of online courses to prepare for virtually any major and for eventual study in the U.S.

Both programs include in-person tutoring and academic support, as well as access to RAU computer labs and study areas. Clubs and community activities are also included through RAU.
