What next?


We do our best to process your application as fast as possible. However, due to the high number of applicants, it may take a few weeks.

If your application is incomplete, the application process will be delayed and you might not be able to submit the application before the deadline. 

Therefore, we strongly encourage you to make sure that you submit a complete application.

You can check the status of your application by logging into the online self service, using the same login and password as when you created and submitted your application. 

In your self-service account you will also have access to updated information regarding:

  • Your programme of study
  • Your mentor/buddy (except for students at AU Herning)
  • Your accommodation


Once you have been accepted, the following documents will be available in your mit.au.dk account:

  • Letter of Enrolment
  • Application form for a residence permit (for non-EU applicants)

You will also receive an official welcome e-mail from AU International Centre with information about housing, mandatory AU Intro Days and the AU Pre-Arrival guide.  We strongly advise you to read this information carefully prior to your arrival to Aarhus.  

It is important that you begin to plan you trip to Aarhus as soon as possible. On the Arrival in Denmark page of the portal for current international students, you will find information about travelling to Denmark (Aarhus, Emdrup and Herning), as well as information regarding Residence Documents and Danish Social Security Number. Processing time for residence permits is up to 60 days, so be sure to apply as soon as possible.


Do you have questions about the arrival process when coming to Aarhus? Check out this instructional video on what the registration process will be like when you arrive and register with the International Centre and Housing Office.


Stay up-to-date and find out more information about your specific AU Intro Days ­­- a mandatory introduction programme, organised by the International Centre in cooperation with Studenterhus Aarhus.

It usually takes place before or during the first weeks of each semester start.

This Facebook page is a platform where the international students can contact each other – student to student, but also a place where the International Centre will post important information about the AU Intro Days and events specifically for incoming international and exchange students.

The Facebook page is administered by the International Centre, but should be seen as an opportunity for social gatherings, peer-to-peer contact and more.
