About this portal
With its approximately 1,500 students, the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague is the largest arts school in the Czech Republic. Its large number of applicants and demanding entrance examinations enable AMU to maintain a high level of selectivity in all three of its faculties. The number of students remains stable, the drop-out rate is consistently low, and graduates’ success on the job market is high. AMU offers its students the opportunity to further develop their talents and to refine their specific personal presentation in the areas of theatre, film, music and dance. It provides them with a deep immersion into their respective disciplines in the context of European culture, and enables them to identify their own place in Czech culture, which is determined by a unique blend of artistic, social and political life.
