At AAU your academic excellence is not the only thing we care about; we also want you to enjoy the beauty and culture of this most quintessential of European cities, Prague. That’s why we set up the “The Student Ambassadors”, a group of experienced AAU students who have volunteered to assist new students in adapting to both Prague and university life so they become successful academically as well as socially. They are our way of saying “Welcome to Prague, and welcome to AAU!”
