We do almost all of our projects in small international teams, and we work together like we would in a business company and synergize our different ideas.

AAU is one of few universities globally—and the first institution in Europe— to have received the prestigious accreditation from the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), an American accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

This accreditation gives degrees obtained at AAU wide recognition throughout Europe due to the Czech Republics’ membership in the European Union.

AAU makes networking incredibly easy to do. I was able to participate in various events that don’t necessarily connect to my coursework—conferences, literature festivals, debates, lectures, etc. AAU has helped me and my club get in touch with event-organisers, which, for example, allowed us to host an event during the Festival of Democracy organised by the famous Forum 2000 conference.Veronika Bartáková, International Relations student, President of Diplomatic Club
Aside from the multicultural environment on campus, you will have the opportunity to broaden your horizons and earn credit toward your degree through our numerous university exchange and Erasmus programs scattered around the globe.

This is why we strongly encourage our students to take advantage of our international opportunities whether it’s a full semester abroad or a short-term program.
With the global recognition, American WASC accreditation, the multitude of exchange and Erasmus options, and being located in the heart of Europe, selecting AAU was an easy choice for me.Benjamin Rodenburg, Fiji – School of International Relations & Dimplomacy
