About course fees

Students from AU's international partner universities, Aarhus University or any other Danish University, who are approved by their home university will not have to pay a course fee. 

If you cannot get a nomination from your home university, your university is not one of our partner universities or if you are not currently enrolled in a university you will have to pay a course fee.
The fee is determined by your citizenship (if you have an EU citizenship or not), the subject area and amount of ECTS points of the course you are interested in. 

The exact EU And NON-EU fee for each course appears on the course page for each course.  

The course fee includes a 3% administration fee.

The course fee does not include housing, meals or study materials. For a budget example that includes all these things then please see the below box. 

UK Citizens: Unfortunately we are not able to tell you yet if you have to pay the EU or the NON-EU fee in 2020. We will monitor the process and give an update as soon as we know more. We expect to send out acceptance letters in mid-April, thus after Brexit. The fee you have to pay will therefore depend on the details of the final Brexit agreement. 

We recommend UK citizens to assume that they will be eligible for the EU course fee and apply accordingly. Should it turn out that we will have to ask you to pay the NON-EU fee (in case of a hard-Brexit) you can of course withdraw your application easily and with no consequences if you do not wish to pay the NON-EU fee.
