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 welcomes international students to 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. You can only register once you have arrived in Denmark.

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

You will be informed about how to apply for a CPR number at the intro days and information will be updated below.

 

  1. Apply for a CPR number online – once you have a confirmed housing offer in the municipality of Aarhus.
  2. Book an appointment on either 9 or 23 February 2023 to finish your registration in person with Citizen Services at Dokk1.

It is important that you follow the registration process carefully and bring all the required documents to Dokk1.
