Anglo-American University offers a wide range of undergraduate programs across five different schools as well as in cooperation with international partners. You can enter AAU as a first-year student or if you have credits that are transferable, you can apply as a transferring student. We have rolling admissions, therefore, you can submit your applications all year round. During the application process, you will always have a dedicated Admission Counselor available to assist you and answer any questions you might have.
For detailed information regarding the admissions process, please see the AAU Admissions Policy.
Decide which program suits you best
The first step is to decide on the program you would like to study. Currently we offer 40+ undergraduate programs and concentrations across five schools. For more details see the full program list.
Our internationally accredited programs are available for only a fraction of the cost of similarly accredited programs around the world. As such, you can earn a fully accredited U.S. bachelor’s degree in three years instead of four. This is only possible because of the unique combination of European and US accreditation that Anglo-American University has!
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.
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.

Anglo-American University requires all students to submit verified copies of documents (High School Diploma and High School Transcript) prior to the first day of classes. Detailed information on the type of verification required can be found in the Admissions Policy. Please make sure you read the Admissions Policy in detail.
Students aiming to study in a Czech-accredited degree program must also provide a certificate of recognition of their secondary education completed abroad*. The recognition, otherwise known as nostrification, is the process of having previous education recognized by Czech authorities and is part of the process required for studying in a Czech-accredited program. Detailed information on how to obtain the nostrification certificate can be found here.
*For students studying in the Czech Republic: if you wish to study in a Czech-accredited degree and have not obtained a Czech maturita diploma, nostrification also has to be completed.
