Arts Intro Days

Intro Week Programme for all Arts Exchange Students 23 August to 27 August

The Faculty of Arts Intro programme this year will be entirely on-line. We’ll be updating this page with the relevant links, so you have access to the relevant Zoom-meetings and presentations. The Arts International Team is looking forward to meeting you at the session on 26 August and 27 August, where you can ask us any questions you may have in relation to your study at Faculty of Arts. In order to get the most out of the Q&A session we encourage you to browse through the Nice to Know Guide (which will be sent to you by e-mail), prior to the session. Please note that Aarhus University’s International Centre hosts a welcome program (Welcome Event) on 23 August and application for Social Security Number (CPR) on 24 August. We encourage all students to participate in this program as well.
