Welcome to AAU

It is my true pleasure to welcome you to Anglo-American University, the oldest private university in the Czech Republic. Our institution is distinguished by providing exceptional bachelor’s and master’s education in the areas of business, humanities, journalism, international relations and diplomacy, and law.

Carrying both European (the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports) and American (the WASC Senior College and University Commission) accreditation, AAU provides a unique learning environment for its students who shall, upon the completion of their studies, earn a diploma of exceptional value.

The AAU community enjoys an environment underlined by the unparalleled genius loci of perhaps the most beautiful university campus in Central Europe. The campus, consisting of the magnificent and breathtakingly restored Thurn und Taxis Palace and splendid adjacent historical building, has quickly become an international hub where academia intermingles with business, diplomatic circles, the media, and the local community.

We have striven to create and continuously improve an educational environment that fosters intellectual curiosity, leadership, cooperation, and respect for cultural and national diversity. Our students are encouraged to take an active role in university life, we support the scholarly work of our faculty, and we are grateful to our alumni for their continued friendship, involvement, and support.
