International applicants without a Danish CPR number

If you do not have a Danish CPR (civil registration) number, you will be asked to give your e-mail address in order to get your application profile registered in the system.

Once you have entered your e-mail address, a direct link to your login page will be sent to your inbox. Check your spam folder if you do not receive this e-mail. With this login you will be able to start the application process.

The system will automatically create a temporary CPR number for you. Your e-mail address and this temporary CPR number will be used to identify you throughout your whole application process, by both the application system and Business Academy Aarhus. 

Signature page 

Once you have submitted and approved your application(s), a message will be displayed containing a link to the signature page. You must click on this link to generate a signature page.

You must then date, sign and upload this signature page - one for each of the programmes you have applied for. This is very important, as we will otherwise not be able to see, download or process your applications.

We do not accept signature pages by email or by post. We will only process your application if your signature page is uploaded correctly via the form on our homepage.
