Studying at Aarhus University

As an international student at Aarhus University, you will be part of a group of more than 4000 international students, representing more than 120 nationalities.

The study environment at Aarhus University is informal, and the open and critical discussions between students and professors make for a very exciting and dynamic learning experience. Many former students have told us how much they appreciate that the professor’s door is always open and their teachers are always ready to help them succeed in their studies.

We hope you will find student life here great as well.
