Practical information

If you are going on a study trip abroad or in Denmark, you may apply for financial support from the relevant department.

The study trip must take place in a period, where there is no teaching, e.g. the week before Easter

Applications may be sent throughout the year, and grants are given based on an assessment of the required contents of the application (see below), and if funding for the particular purpose of the trip is available.

The grants are intended for study trips for groups of students with the purpose of getting new perspectives on their studies, e.g. by visiting companies or other universities. It is not possible to apply for funding in connection with trips related to the writing of a Master’s thesis.

The study trip must be a natural part of the teaching, or alternatively enhance internationalisation and cooperation across the borders.

Application

The application must include the following information:

  • The purpose of the trip and in what way it is relevant for the study
  • Programme for the study trip
  • Number of students participating in the study trip and list of participants
  • Budget for the study trip
  • Letter of recommendation from the course coordinator, lecturer or similar
  • Name of the leader of the trip, if any
  • Separate budget for the leader of the trip, if any

The application must be sent to the relevant department. See above.

After the study trip, a short report describing the contents and output of the trip must be sent to the same contact person at the relevant department as well.

Financial support

Financial support is allocated as follows:

  • Overseas: DKK 800 per student
  • Europe: DKK 400 per student
  • Sjælland: DKK 200 per student
  • Rest of Denmark: based on individual assessment
  • One-day company visits:  based on individual assessment

You may also apply for financial support to cover the travel and living expenses of one trip leader. The trip leader must be an employee at Aarhus University.
