Learn Danish

Learn Danish while you study

Most Danes speak English quite well. 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. There is no doubt that taking a Danish course will benefit you in several ways and is in most cases also necessary if you want to look for a job.

AU strongly recommend that all international students follow Danish courses while studying at Aarhus University. We have several great and experienced language schools who all offer a multicultural learning environment for international students at Aarhus University.

Depending on the language school you can choose between day or evening courses, some Danish courses are also available as an online activity.
