AAU is one of the first Czech Universities to head back to class this week following a 3-day new student orientation that welcomed students from 42 different countries.

obrázek AAU hosted new student orientations over the course of August 28th-30th for 140+ degree-seeking students and 30 study abroad or exchange students followed by the start of classes on Monday September 2nd. AAU has long adopted an early start emanating from the traditional schedule of American universities, making it the early bird in comparison to many of its European counterparts. 

The admissions reports are positive with the number of students in the incoming class already surpassing that of last year. The freshmen class is expected to continue to grow as applications are still being accepted for Fall 2019 late intake and these students will be welcomed to campus on September 26th for an orientation and will be enrolled amongst their fellow classmates following that.

So who is the freshmen class and where do they come from? Well the ever-diversifying AAU community continues to expand with the addition of students from 42 different countries in the incoming class so far. Consistent with previous years, the top nationalities are the United States with 28 students, the Czech Republic with 24 students and 16 students coming from the Russian Federation. From there the class continues to diversify with small clusters of students hailing from Spanish speaking countries like Ecuador and Mexico as well as other parts of Europe, Africa, Asia and so on. 



When it comes to programs of study this year's class has chosen 14 of AAU's 17 offered programs and their top choices fall in line with AAU's historically popular majors with Business related fields taking the top 2 spots followed by International Relations, Journalism and Humanities. An increase from previous years is visible in the various law programs with 8 students entering our Undergrad LLB program and 5 enrolling the the Certificate of Higher Education in Common Law.

Toward the end of September AAU will also welcome some fresh faces to the Student Council. The Student Council is an autonomous body within AAU which represents students’ interests in developing strategy, policies, and programs for the university. Student Council elections are open to degree-seeking and study abroad students and will be held in the second half of September. Interested students have until September 16th to register to run.
