How To Get Into AAU
Updated: May 3
I had the best four years of my life here and, seriously, you will too. I read the admissions policy and combined it with my own knowledge of the University so you know what you need to get into AAU.
Side note, I am now an official recruiter for AAU so feel free to reach out to me on IG and I am happy to help guide you through the application process, give some visa advice, figure out if AAU is the right university for you, or figure out what other university might be better for you! And if you do happen to apply, mention me on your application whether you learned about AAU from me or if I just gave helpful advice, I may receive a commission from the university based on how I helped you :)
Degree Seeking Student: A student who will study their full degree at AAU (this is what I did)
University: Anglo American University which consists of multiple schools of study
School: The school within the university which your program is apart of
High School Diploma
High School Transcript (they can't really give a GPA requirement because this is an international university with students from all over the world coming from different academic systems so each student is assessed individually based on their academic preparedness)
English Language Exam Results (for non-native English speaking students)
Personal Statement (they provide the prompts)
Passport or ID Copy
Passport Size Photo (you can take it yourself at home)
Fill out the Online Application (AAU is also on the Common App)
Pay application fee of 2,000Kč ($92)
Prepare for the Interview
Wait for your Acceptance Letter! (comes within one week of the interview)
There is no deadline! AAU has rolling admissions so they are accepting applications at all times.
However, you want to give yourself enough time to get a visa if you need one. Give yourself about 4 months for gathering visa documents, submitting the application, and processing time.
AAU stops accepting applications from non-visa seeking applicants for the upcoming semester two weeks before the semester starts.
Students with visa requirements are requested to apply no later than 10 weeks before the start of the term.

AAU looks for students who show initiative, motivation, leadership, persistence, and service to others.
AAU provides the prompts for this here: Undergraduate Admissions
You should write about your academic, personal, and extracurricular achievements.
Honestly, it is not as stressful as you might expect, but here’s what you should keep in mind going into the interview.
This is what they assess:
interest in the field
motivation to succeed
Personally, I recommend also keeping these questions in mind:
Why AAU? Why Prague?
Why do you want to study this degree program?
ie. Humanities, Journalism, International Relations, Business, Law, Visual Arts
Why will you be successful moving to and studying in a foreign country?
What international experience do you have?
ie. exchange programs, cultural experiences, educational travel opportunities
Will you take advantage of clubs and activities on campus during your time at AAU?
ie. If you will study journalism, will you join the school newspaper or radio?
When you are admitted, you are accepted for the US degree track. If you want to also receive the Czech degree you must complete a process called Nostrification.
Nostrification is the process of proving your secondary education (middle and high school) was equivalent to Czech secondary education.
This process is a bit tricky, but I was able to complete it fairly easily and the university will guide you through it.
