Due to new recommendations for preventing the spread of COVID-19, Aarhus University has decided that all introduction week activities for new students are cancelled up or postponed up to and including 23 August.

At the moment, we are expecting to be able to carry through the introduction week for your degree programme as planned (see the programme on this page). However, we encourage you to stay up to date on these pages and on your AU email. Changes may occur.

To make an easier start for you at Aarhus University, we have gathered some practical information for you.

You will of course also find information about the most fun part - Introduction week 2020.

Commencement of studies

For coming students in Economics and Business Administration, HA and Top-up, your Introduction Week starts Monday 24 August to Wednesday 26 August 2020. Tuition will commence on Monday in Week 36. The introduction week will be a combination of social and academic events. The instructors have planned the Introduction week, and they have described the most important things about your commencement of studies in your New Student Handbook.

It is not necessary to inform us, if you are not able to participate in the introduction week. However, we strongly urge you to participate, as you receive a lot of important information during this week.

By mid August you will receive an email or a letter from the instructors with further information.

When you start at Aarhus University you can help yourself by going through this list of "need-to-do" and "need-to-know," which you find here: Checklist for new students. Here you can find information about books and compendiums, timetables, IT and much more.

Residence permit

As an international student, you need to apply for a residence permit (non-EU/EEA) or certificate (EU/EEA) for your right to reside in Denmark. As part of the introduction week you will be given help in applying for both residence permit and health insurance. We strongly encourage you to read through the rules and regulations regarding residence permit and health insurance before arriving.
