The University is an autonomous, private, non-profit, scientific, and higher education institution, established in the year of 2003 as a Faculty of Social Sciences. The founder of the first private university in the country is Mr. Fiat Canoski, MA. In 2007, with the introduction of new academic areas, the institution became the First Private University-FON. As a result of the significant growth in its development and the great interest for education, apart from Skopje, AUE - FON opens three dispensary departments in Strumica, Gostivar and Struga. Still functioning to this day is the dispensary department in Struga.
Following the world trends in higher education in order to adapt to the interest, needs and requirements of students, in 2020 the university rebranded and renamed itself into the American University of Europe - FON.
For the past 20 years of its existence, the University has been constantly investing in its growth and advancement, because we are aware that investments in education drive innovation, create new values and are a key tool for transformation.
Thus, with the continuous investments today, the American University of Europe-FON sets world standards and conditions for the academic development of each individual, stimulates competition and contributes to the shaping of the employment market.
As a leading higher education institution in private education, the American University of Europe-FON, has faculties that offer teaching of higher education in the first and second cycle of studies, and will soon begin with a third cycle of studies, which allows students to be educated by the best academic teaching staff from the country and abroad.
In addition, the University combines knowledge and experience, research and practice, and the multidisciplinary approach we apply has a strategic role in meeting the needs of entrepreneurship and adapting students to the changes the world is facing today.
