The Danish Students’ Grants and Loans Scheme (SU) Office at Aarhus University provides guidance and processes applications for grants and loans, Youth Travel Cards and mileage allowance, as well as scholarships to study abroad for all current and future students at Aarhus University.


Atttention - Office closed

The SU-office is closed as a result of the Government's recommendations in connection with the Corona virus. 

You can find answers to many SU questions at su.dk, at minSU or on this page.
However, Danish Students' Grants and Loans Scheme Office can be contacted by sending an email from your AU student email
to su@au.dk, but due to limited capacity and limited access to the systems, you must expect a longer response time.
