Meet us abroad

Every year Aarhus University attends several fairs and events around the world. 
Find out if we are visiting a city near you, so you can meet AU abroad.

Open Day

Every year in February Aarhus University invites potential students to participate in our Open Day for international students.

On this day you can talk to admissions, meet current international students, get a tour of the campus and much more. The date for 2017 was 10 February and you can see the programme for the event here.


We know it is a major decision for a student to go abroad to undertake a full degree in a new country. We are also aware that parents, of course, wish to have as much information as possible about the country and the university their son or daughter may go to, to assist them in making an informed decision. We have therefore made information about Aarhus University and living in Denmark available in 15 different languages.
