The Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (AMU) is the leading educational art institution in Central Europe. The university is divided into three independent faculties, each specialised in its own artistic endeavour: theatre (DAMU), film and TV (FAMU) and music and dance (HAMU). Each faculty offers accredited study programs in English as well as short-term individual internships, exchange programs, specialized courses and opportunities to study abroad. 

AMU cooperates with many European schools as well as with educational institutions outside the EU. It is involved in a range of international artistic and research projects and is a member of international professional organisations.

Our students seek to refine their specific abilities under the tutelage of active professionals of Europe’s cultural and intellectual scene, top ranking filmmakers, theatre dramaturges and stage performers, musical virtuosos and master dancers with the emphasis on a uniquely individual approach. The highest standards of artistic education are reflected in the frequent prestigious awards achieved at domestic and international festivals and events. 

Our Theatre Faculty (DAMU) is a modern art school focused on the education of artistic personalities who are able to combine knowledge of theatrical procedures and styles with the courage to venture for creative experiment. DAMU offers studies in all fields of theatre production: acting, directing, dramaturgy, scenography, theory and criticism, theatre production, authorial work and drama education, both in the field of dramatic theatre and in the field of devised and object theatre.

Our Film and TV School (FAMU) is one of the leading film schools in Europe and the cradle of many of the most acclaimed Czech filmmakers. Its students films are recognised with dozens of awards at film festivals around the world every year. FAMU's study programmes combine both practical and theoretical approaches, thanks to which students acquire a comprehensive set of skills and knowledge needed to work in all professions of film, television, photography and new media.

Our Music and Dance Faculty (HAMU) explores the boundaries of musical and dance experience with a wide range of study programmes both in Czech and English. The campus is located in the heart of Prague’s historical centre and spreads throughout the fascinating buildings including several music halls, an open-air stage, a club stage, a research facility and a recording studio. Graduates perform successfully as soloists on prominent Czech and world stages, and find employment not only as independent professionals but also in orchestras, theatres and educational institutions around the world.

All three faculties are located in the heart of Prague’s historical centre. Prague is home to a number of famous cultural attractions with great connection with the rest of Europe. In addition to this, the capital of the Czech Republic is one of the best student cities and has also been ranked high on the list of 100 safest cities in the world!
