Studying at Aarhus University

The "University Studies in Jutland" opened in 1928 in a rented accommodation with only 78 students. Today, around 35,000 undergraduate and graduate students attend Aarhus University. These students are taught by around 6,000 full and part-time academic staff and supported by app. 3,000 technical and administrative personnel.

Beautifully situated, most of the university's yellow brick buildings are placed in a hilly area with a moraine valley. These attractive friendly surroundings promote inspiration, industry and efficiency - and students who have come here have taken away fond and lasting memories.
