AAU Announces New Campus
The former AAU is closing on December 15th. It will re-open for students again on January 5th, 2015. All classes in 2015 will be running either in the Library building at Letenská 1 or in the NEW CAMPUS. The new campus is located just down the street from AAU's previous location at Taxis Palace.
Housing & excursions provided by CEA.
Studying abroad at Anglo-American University in Prague goes far beyond a usual study abroad experience. At AAU you will go global. While all classes are taught in English, you will be fully incorporated in lectures with degree-seeking students, who are locals and from other foreign countries. In classes you will be able to meet people from more than 60 countries. How many friends from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan or The Republic of Georgia do you have? Compared to traditional study abroad programs, where you would be in class with mostly American students, at AAU you will learn to work with those whose first language is not English – a skill you will highly appreciate in your future global life and career pursuits.
The AAU campus is located in the city center, just under the Prague Castle, the largest castle complex in the world. If you are interested in European history, art and culture, you will not find a better place to pursue your interests. You can spend time studying these fields in your lectures and then actually go out and see it first-hand. Some of the culture and history classes include site visits as part of their curriculum.
Furthermore, you will not only be a student in Prague, which is perhaps the most picturesque city in Europe. Thanks to inexpensive air fares and bus tickets, you will be able to live and feel other parts of Europe you can think of as well. Studying in Prague means in an hour you can be shopping at Champs-Elysees in Paris, riding a double-decker bus in London or touring the Colosseum in Rome.
Don’t like flying? Upscale but inexpensive long-distance buses will make it possible for you to see the rests of the Berlin Wall in just about 5 hours, or to eat the famous Sacher cake in Vienna in 4 hours.
Come to Prague with an open mind to discover new cultures, get to know new people. Many study abroad students in Prague never want to leave!
"International vs. Global"
Carlos Gutierrez, Dean for Professional Education and Faculty Member at AAU
"The Introduction to Management course I taught last semester at Anglo-American University in Prague had several American study-abroad students, two of them from Chapman University. Accompanying them were students from nine other countries around the world: Austria, Korea, Uzbekistan, Czech Republic, Georgia, Russia, Kazakhstan, Japan, and Russia! There were 21 students in the class with ten nationalities. I quickly realized that this academic experience went far beyond what we commonly refer to as "international"...this was a truly global teaching and learning experience! Most of the students had never met people from all these countries, and it gratifying to see the students learn about and process perspectives so different from their home country during the team exercises."
