You probably have met and befriended some of our mentors during the Orientation Days. Aren’t they the best? Join them in the Buddy Program this year! Through the AAU Buddy Program, our mentors will help new students feel as if they are at home. This program aims to help make the transition to AAU and Prague smoother and more enjoyable.

About the AAU Buddy Program

At AAU, academic excellence is not the only thing we care about; we also want our students to enjoy the beauty and culture of Prague and the excitement that university life has to offer. That’s why we’ve set up the AAU Buddy Program, a group of experienced AAU students who have volunteered to assist new students in adapting to both Prague and university life so they can make the most out of their new life chapter. We know it can be tough transitioning into a new environment and figuring out your university routine, and our AAU mentors are here to help you do just that. They are our way of saying “Welcome to Prague, and welcome to AAU!”
