You can get an overview of your possibilities for financial support as a student at Business Academy Aarhus here.
If you are an international student, you can – in a few cases – apply for scholarships to fund all or part of your programme at the Business Academy. All students can apply for scholarships to fund studies or internships abroad.
For incoming and current students on full-time programmes
The Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science offers a scholarship scheme for non-EU citizens. There are only very few scholarships available and they will be given to highly qualified students. Business Academy Aarhus primarily offers scholarships to students who have passed at least their first semester at the Academy. This means that non-EU students must expect to pay tuition fees themselves for at least the first semester.
A scholarship may be given as a full or partial cover of the tuition fees and/or as a monthly grant to cover living expenses.
Applicants are recommended for the scholarships by Business Academy Aarhus. Decisions regarding recipients of scholarships are made once a year, in May/June.
How to apply for a scholarship
Current students: Tuition fee paying non-EU students will be contacted by Business Academy Aarhus in April with instructions on how to apply.
Incoming students: Please apply via the application form below. The application form must be uploaded along with your programme application, following the general application deadlines for the programme in question. Late scholarship applications will not be considered.
Scholarships for Canadian students
We have a total of 8 scholarships for Canadian students applying for a Bachelor top-up degree at Business Academy Aarhus in autumn 2016 or 2017. Apply via the application form above.
Danish citizens can apply for financial support (SU) according to the rules for obtaining grants and loans from the Danish State Education Grant and Loan Scheme.
Non-Danish citizens have to meet certain demands in order to be entitled to receive SU.
For current students going abroad for study or internship
When you apply for an Erasmus exchange abroad, you apply for the study placement at the partner institution as well as the grant. This goes for all nationalities. The size of the grant varies from year to year but is approximately €250 per month.
You can also apply for an Erasmus grant for internship in Europe. The size of the grant is the same as student exchange grants.
Please note that not all applicants are able to receive the Erasmus grant. This is due to an increased number of students wanting to study abroad and a limited amount of grants. If this is the case, it will still be possible to study abroad as an Erasmus student, but without the grant.
Get more information on where you can go and how to apply:
As a Danish citizen, you are still eligible to get SU while studying or doing you internship abroad . All it requires is that you are eligible to receive SU and that Business Academy Aarhus approves your stay abroad as a full credit awarding stay that can replace part of your programme at the Academy.
As a foreign citizen you have to meet certain demands in order to be entitled to bring your SU while studying or doing your internship abroad.
If you are eligible to receive SU while studying abroad, you have the opportunity to apply for “Udlandsstipendium” in addition to regular SU. The “Udlandsstipendium” will pay all or part of your tuition fees at the foreign university. All it requires is that Business Academy Aarhus approves your stay abroad as a full credit awarding stay that can replace part of your programme at the Academy.
This is a grant that is awarded at the end of the autumn semester.
You cannot apply for the grant but must be nominated by your teacher to be able to receive a grant of DKK 15,000 – 20,000. Therefore, you have to make your teachers aware that you are going abroad, and they will then nominate the students that they consider are entitled. Be aware that a nomination does not mean that you automatically get the grant.
The grant is only awarded to students:
- of Marketing Management (Markedsføringsøkonom)
- of Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Innovation og Entreprenørskab)
- of International Sales and Marketing Mangement (International Handel og Marketing)
- with a Danish citizenship
- who are abroad during the period of January – July
The Nordea Foundation offers a number of scholarships to students currently enrolled in a professional bachelor’s degree, for example Financial Management and Services (Finansbachelor) and International Sales and Marketing Management (Professionsbachelor i international handel og markedsføring) among others.
