About

Anglo American University, the oldest private university in the Czech Republic, has been educating global achievers from around the world since its founding in 1990. Situated in the beautifully restored Thurn-Taxis palace in Prague’s historic Malá Strana, AAU offers 17 undergraduate and graduate programs in English to students from over 70 countries across the world.

With an average of just 15 students per class, AAU places an emphasis on small, interactive classes and focuses on critical and creative thinking, effective communication, and flexibility. AAU also cooperates with local and international organizations to enrich students learning experiences outside of the classroom. The quality of teaching is guaranteed by the personalized approach we take with each student along with our rigorous international accreditations.

AAU is one of a few universities globally to have received accreditation from the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), an American accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. Most of AAU’s programs are also accredited by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic. Exceptions are the Law programs and the Chapman MBA program, which are offered in cooperation with international partners.

As a not-for-profit university, AAU continually invests in developing the potential of our community and improving our educational models. We work together with our diverse student body to cultivate a sense of ethical consciousness and social responsibility towards each other and the world.

INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE

The EU’s Erasmus program has been an important part of AAU’s push toward internationalization. AAU currently has 26 established erasmus agreements with European universities. The partnerships allow students and staff to travel abroad for a semester and experience the varying education systems and styles across the EU. Outside the EU, AAU’s efforts have historically focused on the USA and other English-speaking countries; but there has been a recent development to include exchange partnerships in Asia as well as this is an increasingly important economic area where graduates are seeking employment. AAU has 16 established partner universities for students to choose from in locations including but not limited to the USA, Korea, Australia, Malaysia, Canada and Israel.

GLOBALLY ACCREDITED

STUDENTS LIFE

AAU's student body includes full-time, exchange and study abroad students of many different nationalities. With students, faculty, and staff from more than 70 countries AAU is an international hub that provides a unique opportunity for students to learn and draw inspiration from many cultures and philosophies inside and outside the classroom.

Student activities include a regular student magazine, The Lennon Wall, an online radio station Sound Bricks, and a range of special interest clubs. Some recent examples of the successful clubs our students have gotten involved with include: Model United Nations, Diplomats, Hiking and Urban Gardening and Sustainability Club. Our faculty and students regularly participate in art exhibits, scholarly discussions at our monthly series Research and Creative Coffees, informal evening debates on current topics in our popular Professors in the Pub series, based at the Café de Taxis in the university courtyard, and Friday night performances at the Library.
Lennon Wall is AAU's student magazine, which takes its name from the John Lennon Wall, a monument to freedom of expression located near the university. The magazine describes itself as "a nonpartisan platform for aspiring reporters and future writers", independent from the university.

Sound Bricks is AAU’s student radio station. It broadcasts 24 hours a day on the Internet at soundbricks.net, and its programming is produced by students, volunteers, and faculty. While Sound Bricks is an official project of AAU, the content of each program is the responsibility of the individual show creators.
