Rabat is one of Morocco's "imperial cities," as well as its political capital. It is home to the leading educational institutions in the country and offers students opportunities to move from the shops and cafes of the "European" city to the winding alleys and exciting markets of the old medina in a few minutes' walk. Students attend their classes at AMIDEAST's facilities in the bustling Agdal area of Rabat, near the Royal Palace.
