AAU has high-quality professors and a wide variety of classes to choose from. The courses that are offered at AAU are quite unique compared to the other universities in the Czech Republic and the student body is extremely diverse which has led me to meet people from all across the world.

AAU classes are small, usually up to 25 people, which I believe makes the interaction between international classmates more personal and diverse. It is a huge advantage as students to get an opportunity to speak up, to express our personal opinion as well as get a chance to practice our presentational skills.
