Aarhus University is a young, modern university established in 1928. It has grown to become a leading public research university with international reach covering the entire research spectrum.
The university’s goal is to contribute towards solving the complex global challenges facing the world. The university therefore strives to combine the high level of academic standards of its researchers with collaboration across disciplinary boundaries to combine research in new ways and solve challenges in close contact with the world around us.
Aarhus University has a wide range of offers for researchers at all stages of your career. Find information about your opportunities as a PhD, Junior Researcher or researcher.
Individual and confidential career counselling is the backbone of our career service. We offer one-to-one career guidance discussions every week where you can discuss your career development, your job opportunities, get help with your CV and job interview and/or try a focus profile test.
Student counsellors are experienced students who advise other students in their department. They are your first contact when you have questions, and they will be able to help or advise you on where to go for additional help.
As in other big cities, finding housing can be an effort. There are many different options, but most foreign nationals working or studying in Denmark choose to rent a home. You need to consider where you are going to live as soon as you know you are coming to Aarhus University.
The AU libraries are located on every AU campus. All libraries have spacious reading rooms and wifi, and some are accessible 24/7.
Aarhus University does not hold an insurance policy that covers students who are injured on university premises. For this reason, it is recommended that all students take out private full-time liability and accident insurance.
