Welcome to the exchange students at Aarhus University!
 

Welcome

As an international student you will experience a vibrant student environment with outstanding facilities.
You will be studying at our beautiful campus containing the student house, the health science library and many student clubs and associations, enabling you to network and make new friends. 

Below, you will find important information about your semester as an international student. 

CPR and Residence Certificate registration

When arriving in Aarhus, you must be issued with a CPR number (EU-students need an EU residence document and a CPR number). 
 

Book special appointment

As a service to incoming students, it is possible to book a special appointment on certain dates, where you can obtain all the above at the same time. 
We urge you to make use of these dates, as it makes everything easier for you.

Especially for students of Medicine and Odontology it is important to obtain your Danish CPR-number as soon as possible because it is a requirement for accessing the Danish patient journal system.

The dates are: 

  • Tuesday the 7th and 21st February for students coming from the EU/EEA and Switzerland
  • Thursday the 9th and 23rd February for Nordic students and students from outside the EU/EEA

You have received a mail from the Aarhus University International Office with more info about these dates and links to book the special appointments. 

We know that the dates are after the semester has started, and therefore available appointments may overlap with scheduled mandatory classes. We have notified the teaching staff that you may have to leave for such an appointment and this will not be marked as absence in your attendance sheets. 


How to book separate appointment

If you are unable to make use of the special appointments, the links below will lead to Citizen Service where you can book separate appointments to get a CPR number and an EU residence document.

Please read the information carefully. 

How to get access to AU systems

To log in to AU's systems, you often use your AU ID as a username.

You will find your AU ID at mit.au.dk (see below).

  1. Here you find your AU ID

The picture shows where to find your AU ID on mit.au.dk

The AU ID username is used for these services:

How to find your student number

When you are enrolled, you can see your student number on mit.au.dk, by logging in and going to Student Self-Service (STADS). Here your student number will be under “Enrollments” and “Person and address information”.

The student number is your personal identification at Aarhus University and is also part of you AU-email. 

How to check you email (post.au.dk)

All enrolled students at Aarhus University are given an AU email address.

As a result of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the university will communicate to their students only via a secure email system. Therefore, all email replies and enquiries from us will be sent to your AU email.

To make it easier for both you and us – and to ensure that your data is protected in the best possible way – it is important that you always use your AU email account when contacting us via email.  

The email address will be used when the University contacts you electronically, which might happen in connection with exam registration, cancelled classes, invitations to relevant events, information about exam deadlines etc.  

Please check this e-mail on a daily basis as all information regarding the semester will be sent to your AU email once the semester starts. 

You need your student number to get access to you AU email.

If you have not received your student card but have an exam

Then you must bring the following to the exam:

  • Photo ID (passport or driver's license)
  • Confirmation of enrolment
  • Exam number

You can find the confirmation of enrolment and exam number in the student self-service system (STADS) (mit.au.dk and click to enter STADS).

  • Here you can find the confirmation of enrolment under the tab “print” – select print: exam confirmation.
  • You can find the exam number under the tab "Examination" under registrations.
    Here you should click on the subjects in which you have exams and the exam numbers will then appear.

Digital evaluation of the teaching

As of the spring semester 2016 all courses have to be evaluated digitally which will happen in AU's joint teaching evaluation system that's placed in BrightSpace.

As a student you will not feel much of a difference besides the fact that you have to fill out the questionnaire online in Brightspace instead on paper/or our previosuly used format Blackboard.

You will find the link to the questionnaire in the relevant course in the left menu under the menu item "Course evaluation". Your teacher will give you further instructions.

You can see the old evaluations here (in Danish).
