When you are thinking about which university to choose after successfully completing high school or a previous higher education program, it is important to consider your options. One of those is undoubtedly Anglo-American University (AAU) in Prague, the oldest private institution of higher education in the Czech Republic, and one of the oldest in the region. Since its foundation in 1990, AAU has quickly established itself as a leader among today’s European universities and a favorite study abroad destination.
With curricula that draw on the best of British and American teaching practice, balanced with Central European tradition, AAU offers students small class sizes, interactive study programs, flexible schedules, and dynamic instructors from top schools all around the world (including Cambridge, Harvard, Stanford and Yale). Our watch-words are the pursuit of excellence, respect for individual interests, and presenting an open, international environment to students from all over the world.
Hard work and diligence are encouraged by our generous system of merit scholarships, which offer full or partial tuition waivers to students with excellent grade point averages (GPA). Top students may achieve up to 100% coverage of tuition fees. And as a non-profit, we reinvest 100% of our funds into academic development.
AAU is divided into five schools: the School of Business Administration, the School of International Relations and Diplomacy, the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, the School of Journalism, and the John H. Carey II School of Law. Together, these five provide a wide range of Bachelor and Master Degree programs, catering to diverse academic and professional interests. Erasmus and other international exchanges with over 40 study abroad destinations are available to suitably qualified students. We regularly send students to Hawaii, Australia, Korea, Taiwan and all over Western Europe.

“AAU is a truly unique university.I like how international it is and how it enables students to get to know other cultures more closely and learn to be more open and tolerant. This is the case especially with Central and East European Studies, a program which concentrates on the political, economic and socio-cultural role of Central and Eastern Europe. It allows students to learn how the peoples of the region have affected one another in the past, and also to learn more about that relationship in the present.” Ekaterina Chernysheva (Russia)
