Living in Denmark

Health and safety in Denmark

Denmark is a very safe country to live in and to be a student. It is widely cited as one of the world’s most liveable places and according to the OECD, it has the world’s highest level of income equality.

Being an international student at Aarhus University you will benefit from free healthcare and a lot of other services. Should you become sick Denmark has one of the best healthcare systems in the world and Aarhus University Hospital has been voted the best hospital in Denmark and ranks 11 in the world according to Newsweek’s World’s Best Hospitals list.

Do I need to speak Danish to study there?

A question we often get when meeting international students is if they need to learn Danish to live and study here. The short answer is: No. Everyone – including taxidrivers and shopkeepers speaks really good English. In fact Danes have been ranked as some of the best non-native English speakers in the world.

Nevertheless, knowing some Danish – even just basic words – can be very useful. If you follow a Danish course you will not only learn Danish, you will also get to know more about the Danish culture, Danes and meet other international students. Find out more about learning Danish for free!

Student life

Being a student at Aarhus University might differ from India. Students call professors by their first names and students are expected to engage in academic discussions during classes.

Many non-academic activities such as sports and music are not organized by the university. Still, there is a ton of activities for students in Aarhus, so you will be sure to have an amazing time here.

A place to start is Studenterhus Aarhus which offers activities for all students in Aarhus. These include a weekly International Night, trips around Denmark and much more. It is also possible to get involved as a volunteer and thereby grow your network in Denmark.
