Additional information

Accommodation secured through AAU's long-established network of landlords and agencies, can provide secure, affordable and comfortable accommodation around the city. Apartments are carefully chosen to reflect both local amenities and average commuting time, with various options to suit individual needs. Journey times to the university are never more than 15–25 minutes.

Visa and Immigration

Students who are EU or EFTA nationals (i.e. citizens of the 28 EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland) DO NOT require a visa to study at AAU. It is enough to arrive with a valid passport (or national ID card), and to register with the Czech Immigration authorities within 30 days of arrival.

Students from outside the EU or EFTA (so-called “third-country nationals”) DO require a visa or a residence permit to study in the Czech Republic. Although some minor exemptions apply (in particular for students from countries with a short-term visa waiver, whose total stay in the EU will last less than 90 days), in most cases a visa (or residence permit) will be necessary.
Visas and residence permits are issued at Czech consulates in your country of origin (and/ or country of residence), and must be obtained before coming to Prague. It is not possible to apply for a visa after your arrival,or even to pick up a visa you have previously applied for. Processing times can be up to 90 days. We therefore strongly urge all applicants to contact their local Czech consulate in good time.

Exchange restrictions

As an exchange student you will be given the opportunity to register for any available class for which you are suitably qualified, subject to considerations of space, and subject to approval by your home university. In principle, all classes offered at AAU are available to Erasmus/exchange students, except for a small range of LLB and MBA classes, which are open only to AAU degree-seeking students. Students who are interested in exploring the culture of the Czech Republic may also take optional classes of Czech as a foreign language.
