Being an exchange student

Business Academy Aarhus, School of Applied Sciences, welcomes exchange students from our partner institutions

A semester abroad is a fantastic chance to broaden your cultural foundation, and it will add value to you as a potential international employee.

Aarhus is a university city and a very popular destination for both Danish students and for students from all over the world.

Every year Business Academy Aarhus has more than 600 international students on our English-taught full-time programmes, and we also welcome a number of exchange students.

We look forward to welcoming you to join us for a semester.

Registration and CPR number

As an exchange student coming to Denmark, you will need to be registered in Denmark and get a so-called CPR number. Read more here

When you leave Denmark, you must deregister your address. Read more here

Orientation programme for exchange students

All exchange students are invited to participate in an orientation programme which serves as an informal meeting with staff from the International Office. We strongly advise all exchange students to attend this day as not only will you be provided with information on academic matters, but you will also get lots of other relevant information about living in Denmark etc.

Funding etc

Denmark is not cheap, so start saving as soon as you know that you have been accepted.

Get an exchange buddy

As an exchange student, you get International Office’s student assistant as a Buddy and they will help you with answers to practical questions etc.

You will receive more information about the help you can get from the student assistant when you are admitted as an exchange student at Business Academy Aarhus.

Meet the students

Besides the 700 international students who are enrolled in a full-degree programme, each year Business Academy Aarhus welcomes a number of exchange students from all over Europe. See what a few of them have to say about their experiences as exchange students in Aarhus and at the Academy.
