50 years of internationalisation

In 1966, the International Student Centre was founded in Aarhus by a group of Danish and international students and staff at Aarhus University. 

It started out with small social gatherings where Danes and internationals met in private homes, but over the years ISC has become the ‘home away from home’ for many internationals in Aarhus.

Today the International Student Centre is part of Studenterhus Aarhus and the number of events has just increased over the years.

Events include a weekly international night; the friendship programme Friendship Ambassador, which offers international and Danish students cultural events in Aarhus together with a friend match; the food club Internationalise with Us, which offers international PhD students and postdocs a Danish food club family; and a running club.

The 50 years of internationalisation was celebrated in October 2006 with an event at Aarhus University. Participants included some of ISCs first members.
