Sommerkurser

Hvorfor tage på sommerkursus i udlandet?

Et sommerkursus giver dig mulighed for at opleve et udenlandsk studiemiljø, for at styrke dine sproglige færdigheder og for at optjene ECTS-point i sommerferien!

Rigtig mange universiteter udbyder kortere kurser i sommerperioden. Et sommerkursus på et udenlandsk universitet er et spændende alternativ for studerende, som ikke ønsker at opholde sig i udlandet i et helt semester.

Pladser gennem AU

Hvert år får AU tilbud om et antal gebyrfri pladser på sommerkurser i udvalgte lande (typisk Europa, Indien og Kina). Der er ikke nogen generel ansøgningsfrist, så gå ind og klik på links herunder for det enkelte universitet og orienter dig om indhold, frister og eventuelle krav.

Studiepladserne fordeles blandt andet ud fra følgende kriterier:

  • karaktergennemsnit
  • studieanciennitet
  • særlige krav fra partneruniversitetet

Herunder kan du se udbuddet for 2018. Vi opdaterer løbende siden fra januar-marts 2019, når de nye tilbud kommer ind.

Ansøgningsfrist

Der er ikke nogen generel ansøgningsfrist, så klik på de enkelte opslag for at læse nærmere.

Forhåndsgodkendelse og merit

For at kunne søge en plads, skal du som udgangspunkt have en forhåndsgodkendelse fra dit studienævn. Forhåndsgodkendelsen sikrer, at du kan få merit for dit fag, når du kommer tilbage fra dit ophold. For at vurdere din ansøgning har studienævnet typisk brug for minimum en beskrivelse af dit studieprogram samt fag- og eksamensbeskrivelser fra værtsuniversitets hjemmesider. Normalt søger søger man om forhåndsgodkendelse via mit.au.dk

Det er muligt at ansøge og få en plads uden en forhåndsgodkendelse. I tilfælde af, at der er flere ansøgere end pladser, vil ansøgere med en forhåndsgodkendelse dog blive prioriteret.

Pladser med betaling men rabat til AU-studerende

På egen hånd

Der findes sommerkurser inden for stort set alle faglige emner og i næsten alle lande. Den nemmeste måde at finde oplysninger om sommerkurser rundt om i verden er ved at søge på 'summer school' eller 'summer university' på nettet. Nedenstående hjemmeside kan også være et nyttigt søgeredskab, hvis du søger sommerkurser indenfor Europa:

Tilføj evt. det land eller det fagområde, du er interesseret i. Når du rejser ud på egen hånd, skal du huske, at du sandsynligvis skal betale et deltagergebyr - udover udgifter til rejsen og leveomkostninger. Hvis opholdet forhåndsgodkendes af dit studienævn, kan du dog søge Udlandsstipendiet til at dække deltagergebyret helt eller delvist. Læs mere om udlandsstipendiet i menuen til venstre.

Husk altid at undersøge pris og niveau, inden du melder dig til et sommerkursus!

AU Summer University

Alternativt kan du deltage på AU's Summer University, hvor du har mulighed for at optjene ECTS og samtidig møde internationale studerende og undervisere her i Aarhus.

Mere information og vejledning

Du kan læse mere om sommerkurser på nedenstående links. Du er også altid meget velkommen til at kontakte Internationalt Center fro generel vejledning. Har du brug for fagspecifik vejledning, så kontakt din internationale koordinator på dit fakultet.
