If there is an existing bilateral exchange agreement between Aarhus University and your institution, you can use it to send tuition-fee waived exchange students to AU Summer University. Students must be nominated by you before they can apply as exchange students.
Partner institutions to Aarhus University can use the existing bilateral exchange agreement between Aarhus University and your institution to nominate students for exchange (tuition-fee-waived) at AU Summer University.
The nominated students will be treated as regular semester exchange students and therefore counting in the general exchange balance between Aarhus University and your institution.
Usually students take 10 ECTS during AU Summer University and therefore we count 3:1 towards the regular semester. This also means that when choosing to nominate students to Summer University this will influence the number you can send for regular semester exchange at Aarhus University during the following academic year.
If you do not wish to spend exchange balance on AU Summer University, your students cannot apply as exchange students (tuition-fee waived), but instead they must apply as free-movers (fee-paying students).
In 2024 we will be offering more than 100 Summer courses at BA and MA level and as 5 or 10 ECTS credit courses, within a range of academic areas.
