Below you will find answers to many of the questions that we often receive about exchange.
If you do not find the answer to your question, please contact your international coordinator. You can find our contact information under "Study abroad" -> "Contact" in the menu.
Per. 15/10, most of the agreements are ready in MoveOn.
However, changes may occur up to 1. November, where the system opens for applications for the December round.
Per. 15/3 the agreements have been updated in relation to the application round in May.
Yes, you can! You can state in your application who you want to travel with and you must also decide whether you want to travel on your own if it is not possible to get a spot at the same university.
When you apply together you should both list the same priorities in your application. Also, it is especially important to have many priorities, as it can be more difficult to get a desired university. If you apply to go together it is the lowest average grade on which we allocate spots. If one of you for example has 10.9 in average grade and the other 4.3, then it is 4.3 that counts in the allocation.
You do NOT need to apply for a new advance approval if there are changes in the courses you want to take on your host university.
Instead, you must write an email to your head of degree programme and have the new courses approved directly by him/her via email. In this way, you know that you can have the courses credit transferred when you return home.
When your head of degree programme has approved the courses, you must:
The short answer is YES! And this is because we need to be sure that there are enough relevant courses at all the universities you list.
Therefore, you must specify courses corresponding to 30 ECTS for all your priorities.
This information is also a help to you, as you must also specify the courses when you apply for advance approval later on.
You can only apply for the primary semester you would like to go abroad, but you can indicate in the application system that you are flexible in relation to which semester you can go.
It is also possible to apply for a full academic year/two semesters if you would like to have a longer stay.
No, because the more universities you specify, the greater is your probability of going on exchange. We allocate spaces according to average grade regardless of whether you are applying for one or more places.
When allocating exchange places we want to send out as many people as possible and we are trying to allocate places based on first priorities. But since there are many who want the spots for the particularly popular destinations (e.g. Australia and New Zealand) this is not always an option. We expect you to only apply for destinations that you are interested regardless of the priority.
If you have questions about the course offer or the content of a course at a partner university you must contact their international office for help. Unfortunately, your international coordinator at Nat-Tech cannot help you with that part.
Yes, it is possible to cancel your exchange at any point.
However, you should be aware that if you cancel later than 1. May it is not possible for us to allocate the spot to other students and it is therefore wasted.
If you cancel your exchange there are some things you need to do:
We always recommend that you apply for the December round if you already know where you would like to go - and especially if you are interested in one of the more popular overseas destinations. This is due to the fact that the December round is where all the exchange places for that academic year are available.
There is nothing wrong with applying in the May round, but some of the most popular places will be gone as we only offer the places that are left from the December round. However, there are still plenty of cool destinations left to choose from!
We ask all of our students to evaluate their stay in MoveOn when they have returned. You can find them as 'Travel reports' under the individual agreements with the universities. However, there are not that many available yet as the system is only a few years old.
No, you should not register for courses at AU if you expect to be on exchange in the following semester.
If, after the courses registration period has ended, you find out that you do not want to go to exchange anyway, you can write to firstname.lastname@example.org to register for courses at AU. Before that, remember to update and get an approval of your study contract in the Contract Generator.
All AU students who are going on an exchange at one of Aarhus University’s Erasmus partner universities will be considered for an Erasmus grant unless they have already been granted an Erasmus Mundus scholarship or other types of EU funding.

If you are a non-EU/EEA/Swiss citizen (or hold a British national overseas passport) you must pay tuition fee at Aarhus University for the entire period of your study – also if you are going on exchange to another university.
