CEA is proud to collaborate with Anglo-American University (AAU). Our unique partnership combines the strengths of CEA's global education management with the academic strengths of AAU, an institution firmly rooted in both the local culture and the global marketplace. AAU's breadth of curriculum, instruction in English, interactive classes, and integration of students from around the world make this private Czech institution an ideal partner in comparison with programs offered by Czech state universities that serve only study-abroad students.
Founded in 1990, AAU is the oldest private university in the Czech Republic and the first to offer a full curriculum taught in English after the fall of communism. AAU provides accredited undergraduate and graduate degree programs through five schools: Business Administration, Humanities & Social Sciences, Journalism, Media & Visual Arts, International Relations & Diplomacy, and Law. CEA students attend classes alongside degree-seeking local students.
AAU is located in the breathtaking 17th century Thurn-Taxis Palace, amidst the baroque architecture of Prague's historical Mala Strana quarter, a five-minute walk from the CEA Prague Center. The carefully renovated historical palace combines the beauty of typical Prague architecture with state-of-the art facilities and technology, all adjacent to the AAU library and a city park. The university is surrounded by the city’s main historical attractions. For example, a short walk from AAU over the medieval Charles Bridge brings you to the Old Town Square, while a short climb uphill brings you to the Prague castle.
Small, interactive classes are taught in English by an international faculty to a student population of about 800 students. With a diverse student body from 50 different countries and a small-university environment in the very heart of the city, AAU offers an educational experience that is unique in Prague. CEA students have access to all AAU facilities and are encouraged to participate in events, activities, and sports organized by the AAU Student Council. Since AAU’s student body is comprised of both Czech and international students, you’ll have ample opportunity to meet and interact with your peers in class and on-campus.
Anglo-American University is fully accredited by WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges, USA) and the Czech Republic Ministry of Education.
All final course grades are reported as letter grades. Final credit and grade evaluation is ultimately determined by your home university.
