Explore the study environment at the Academy
In the bookshop on campus, you can buy all required books for your study programme and office supplies. All the Academy's branded clothing can also be bought here.
The Career Center at Business Academy Aarhus offers both individual career guidance and courses/events for groups of students. The goal is to provide you with the inspiration and tools you need to apply for an internship or your first postgraduate job.
We strongly encourage our international students to learn Danish during their stay in Denmark as it will be very useful for you later on.
In cooperation with UCplus, we offer Danish classes which are held at the Academy. The courses are for students at the Academy and are flexibly organised to fit your schedule. The first 10 weeks are free of charge, and after that 3 months only costs 324 DKK. There is a test at the end of each module.
You will get more information when you start your programme.
We organise a number of academic and social events for our students, for example courses in writing applications, various lectures and obviously parties.

The library on campus offers a wide range of books, journals and magazines, papers and online subscriptions. In addition, the librarians teach data collection and information searches.
Student House Aarhus is an organisation and meeting place for all students studying at a higher educational institution in Aarhus.
We prioritise excellent study facilities on all our campuses. So we provide plenty of places to sit and study - either alone or with your group.
In Sønderhøj 30 for example, we have comfortable seats, couches and actual group rooms in the huge canteen area, the library, Basement as well as all the niches in the hallways. And during the peak season of project work, the Academy buzzes with hard-working students.
You have access to the Academy 24 hours a day using your student card (while you are studying at the Academy). The Academy might be closed for some periods. Information about this will be posted on our student intranet and the information screens on campus.
