This accreditation validates the high-quality of education at AAU and opens doors for our students to a vast global market thanks to the international recognition of a US degree.
Anglo-American University is accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC), 985 Atlantic Avenue, Suite 100, Alameda, CA 94501, 510.748.9001.
National Accreditation (MŠMT or NAB)
All undergraduate and graduate degree programs at Anglo-American University are accredited by the local accrediting body the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic or the National Accreditation Bureau for Higher Education in the Czech Republic (with exception of the Law and MBA programs).
This accreditation gives degrees obtained at AAU wide recognition throughout Europe due to the Czech Republics’ membership in the European Union.
In accordance with the recent amendment to the Czech Higher Education Act, as of August 31, 2018, all program accreditations granted by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic have been extended till December 31, 2024.
Chapman MBA Program Accreditations
The Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree at AAU is awarded by Chapman University in California, United States. Chapman University boasts accreditation by both WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) and AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), two top professional accreditations for MBA programs.
This degree is therefore recognized in the United States and gives our students the choice to partake in commencement ceremonies in Prague with their AAU classmates or on-site at Chapman University.
Certification of Accreditation – AACSB
University of London Law Degree Accreditations
AAU’s John H. Carey II School of Law has been granted Registered Teaching Centre status within the University of London’s Teaching Institution Recognition Framework, in recognition of the integrity and quality of instruction at AAU.
This relationship allows AAU law students to obtain Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE), Bachelor of Laws (LLB) and Master of Laws (LLM) degrees from the University of London.
The Laws programmes are accredited in the United Kingdom, and therefore do not have Czech accreditation. This means that Law students are registered and study as Life-Long Learning students at AAU. As such, visa-seeking students should apply for a different type of visa and do not have student status in the Czech Republic. The coursework completed at AAU is utilized to assist students in developing their knowledge of the subject matter and preparing students to sit for the University of London examinations. UOL externally administers and grades all examinations. As such, AAU does not issue credits towards the UOL degree since all credits are awarded by UOL based on examinations and accredited in the United Kingdom.
