Information for AU partner universities

In 2011, Aarhus University launched the extended summer programme "AU Summer University". The programme consists of a portfolio of courses taught in English at Bachelor's, Master's and PhD level within the fields of Arts, Business and Economics, Business Communication, Political Science and Law, Health, Science and Technology.

In 2016, we ran 50+ courses taught by Danish and international guest lecturers from all over the world. All teaching at AU Summer University is based on current research and has a strong international perspective. The close link between research and education ensures the quality and depth of the courses.

AU Summer University welcomes Danish and international full-time students, exchange students and free movers. Class sizes range from 20-50 students. In 2016, more than 1700 Danish and international students decided to spend part of their summer taking specialised, intensive courses in Aarhus.

Along with the academic programme, we offer accommodation services, visa services and a social programme for both lecturers and students.

In 2016, 94% of the evaluated students recommended the programme to their friends.
