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.
The John H. Carey II School of Law offers two undergraduate programs: the Certificate of Higher Education in Common Law and Bachelor of Laws (LLB) as well as the Master of Laws (LLM) starting in Fall 2020.
For information regarding the admissions process, please see the AAU Admissions Policy.

Prepare and collect required documents
Once you decide on the program of your choice it is time to prepare the documents. You will be able to upload them directly via the AAU Application Portal once you start your application.
CV or Resumé Include details regarding your previous education, languages which you speak, hobbies and any other information which you feel is important.
Based on your preferences, please select one of the questions outlined below. The maximum number of words is 650 and the minimum 250. Plagiarism of any part of the personal statement is considered a serious violation of academic integrity and of AAU’s internal rules and will lead to the rejection of your application.
– Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, please share your story.
– The lessons we take from obstacles we encounter can be fundamental to later success. Recount a time when you faced a challenge, setback, or failure. How did it affect you, and what did you learn from the experience?
– Reflect on a time when you questioned or challenged a belief or idea. What prompted your thinking? What was the outcome?
– Describe a problem you’ve solved or a problem you’d like to solve. It can be an intellectual challenge, a research query, an ethical dilemma — anything of personal importance, no matter the scale. Explain its significance to you and what steps you took or could be taken to identify a solution.
– Discuss an accomplishment, event, or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself or others.
– Describe a topic, idea, or concept you find so engaging it makes you lose all track of time. Why does it captivate you? What or who do you turn to when you want to learn more?
– Share an essay on any topic of your choice. It can be one you’ve already written, one that responds to a different prompt, or one of your own design.
Please submit your high school diploma or its equivalent. AAU may recognize as an equivalent any certificate which qualifies you for enrolling in a bachelor’s program in the country under whose jurisdiction the certificate was issued. AAU recognizes IB diplomas, A levels certificates and GED certificates. If you are still in process of obtaining the diploma, you can proceed with the application process, and once you receive it, you are required to submit it. If the documents you are submitting are written in a language other than English or Czech, please also submit official English or Czech translations together with the original-language records.
Please submit your high school transcript documenting all the coursework undertaken during your high school, including your GPA or grade distribution report. If the documents you are submitting are written in a language other than English or Czech, please also submit official English or Czech translations together with the original-language records.
All non-native English-speaking applicants are required to submit proof of English proficiency at B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). AAU recognizes multiple tests as evidence of the B2 level proficiency:
