When it comes to deciding where in Europe to spend 3 years of college, you can’t miss Prague. It’s the heart of the continent!
Here are six reasons why Prague is the dream “second home” and how Anglo-American University will help you make the most of your time here.
1. Cosmopolitan atmosphere
Prague is recognized as one the most beautiful and enchanting cities in Europe with a long tradition of education, making it a popular destination for international students.
“It was a big benefit to be able to engage with people from around the world and their diverse cultures at AAU. In connection with the university’s top tier education, you are offered a unique opportunity to start your career on an international level and make valued connections for your professional future.” – Jan L. Sleis, Alumnus, Czechia, Associate Trainee at Hughes Paddison, UK.
2. Feel secure in the city
Czechia was named the sixth safest country in the world, making it top global city for students.
3. Affordable prices
As an AAU student, you will enjoy a superior education, and a degree recognized worldwide, provided at a lower cost than comparable programs around the world. The cost of living in Prague is significantly lower than in cities like London, Amsterdam, Boston, or Tokyo. An apartment with one bedroom costs around 13,500 CZK (approx. 530 EUR) and a loaf of bread is just 17 CZK (approx. 0.67 EUR).
4. Travel and Job opportunities
Thanks to its excellent location in Central Europe, Prague serves as a great base for traveling all around Europe. From Prague, you can fly to Frankfurt or Amsterdam in an hour and a half. Vienna or Berlin is only a few hours by bus away. When you’re in the heart of Europe, it is very convenient to travel and find jobs after graduation.
5. Vibrant Live Music & Club Scene
Prague is proud of its musical tradition and has many big acts coming through, often in small and intimate venues for low low prices such as Lucerna Music bar, MeetFactory, and DivadloArcha. If you’re more of a clubbing person, whether it’s hip hop, house, techno or Latin, Prague’s got you covered. Among the most famous clubs are PalácAkropolis, Cross Club and Chapeau Rouge.
6. Historic Sites & Museums
It’s no secret that Prague is an iconic world capital. The city is almost untouched by bombings in World War Two. Prague’s baroque and gothic architecture remains as some of the best preserved examples of its kind in Europe. AAU itself is lucky enough to be located in the newly restored baroque Thurn-Taxis Palace right below the Prague Castle. Moreover, you know what they say: the best way to learn about a city is to through its museums. When in Prague, don’t forget to check out the National Museum. For an artsy detour, drop by the National Gallery or DOX with exhibitions ranging from sculpture, through photography, to modern art.
