Program Description:
Aarhus University is a young, modern university established in 1928. It has grown to become a leading public research university with international reach covering the entire research spectrum. Aarhus University plays a decisive – and essential – role at the hub of the city of Aarhus. Aarhus University's main campus is located in the city of Aarhus. Aarhus is Denmark’s second largest city and the youngest measured in terms of the average age of its inhabitants, which is far lower than anywhere else in the country. Aarhus University alone has 40,000 students. This gives the city a youthful and exciting vibrancy of its very own. The city has a reputation for education and training – a brand that extends well beyond the borders of Denmark. It is a lively, modern university, which collaborates with the business community, with cultural centres and with other universities throughout the world.

Testimonials  Check out these testimonials from international students going to Aarhus.
Location Welcome to the country of “the happiest people in the world”. Numerous international studies place Danish inhabitants at the top of happiness and general satisfaction rankings. This apparent satisfaction with life is often credited to 'soft factors' – culture, leisure time and family life - as opposed to 'hard values' such as money or material wealth.

Located in the southernmost part of Scandinavia, Denmark is the gateway between Scandinavia and the rest of Europe. Denmark is a coastal country with long white beaches. The landscape is mostly flat with rolling hills, green fields and woods. Because of the flat landscape, the bicycle is the preferred means of urban transportation.
