Admission to Aarhus University


In order to get started, you should make sure you have all the materials necessary to complete the application.

Before you begin the application process, it is very important to read about how to prepare your 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 for.

The application procedures also vary between the different programmes and academic areas, so you must first determine where you will be applying to, at Aarhus University. Once you decided this, you can move on to apply for admission

Please make sure to select the instructions that relate to the programme and academic area you wish to apply for.

Note: If you wish to apply for housing via AU Housing, 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.

Please note: we do not accept paper based applications!
