Admission to Aarhus University

Getting Started

In order to get started, you should make sure you have all the material necessary to complete the application. You can get an overview of what needs to be done under the tab Preparing Application, which includes information on choosing a campus, choosing courses, and considering housing options. It is very important that you read through the information presented on these pages, as the application procedures vary slightly from campus to campus and it is important that you select the instructions that relate to the campus you wish to apply to.

Once you have prepared your application, you are ready to move to Applying for Admission, where you will find instructions on completing the appropriate application.

The application procedures vary slightly between the different programmes and academic areas so it is important that you understand where you will be applying to at Aarhus University. Once you understand this and have moved on to applying for admission, please make sure to select the instructions that relate to the programme and acadmic area you wish to apply to.

To become an exchange student at Aarhus University, you need to fill in an online application form. If you wish to apply for housing through the International Centre, you need to fill in the housing section within the online application form. We recommend that you use the Internet Explorer web browser to complete the online application as many applicants have experienced problems when using other web browsers such as Firefox or Safari.

Before you begin the application process, please familiarise yourself with the application instructions under Preparing Application carefully.

Please note: we do not accept paper based applications!
