Experience the beauty and culture of Denmark while studying at the internationally renowned University of Aarhus located in the center of the "the world's smallest big city" of Aarhus. You can directly enroll in courses in English in over 30 subject areas while also learning Danish culture. If you have Danish proficiency, you will be able to take advantage of additional courses taught in Danish.

The city of Aarhus was founded during the Viking Age, and there are still traces of the people who chose to settle by the mouth of the Aarhus river. With a population of around 300,000 people, Aarhus is the second largest city in Denmark and because of the high population of university students it retains a young and exciting vibrancy of its very own.
