Aarhus University does not hold an insurance policy that covers students who are injured on university premises.

For this reason, it is recommended that all students take out private full-time liability and accident insurance.

Students who are employed by the university as student assistants or who perform work for the university, in the university’s interest, or at the university’s instruction, are covered by the university’s obligations under the Danish workers’ compensation act.

This means that injuries to students that take place during classroom instruction are not defined as work-related injuries, and students are not entitled to workers’ compensation.
