Founded in 1885, the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague (UMPRUM / AAAD) has evolved from being the first of its kind in the Czech lands to a modern, dynamic, and outward-looking institution, which now has over twenty studios in which to study. Ranging from Typography to Intermedia Art to Fashion Design to Glass, the UMPRUM studios are led by eminent authorities in their respective fields whose passion for teaching matches their dedication to their respective fields. Competition for acceptance into the school is fierce, with the result that the students who are lucky enough to make it up to its student body are highly-skilled and highly-motivated individuals, who proudly continue the storied legacy of the institution.
