On Wednesday 19 August 2020  we will have an Orientation Day for all new international students (only AP and Bachelor's programmes). This year, due to corona, the event will take place online only. We strongly recommend you to participate.

Material fees and other costs

As a student at Business Academy Aarhus, you have to pay a materials’ fee. The fee covers licenses for academic literature databases, subscriptions, copies, student ID card, etc. 

Besides the materials’ fee, (and depending on which programme you are taking),  you may have to make an additional payment for books or a study trip. This must be paid with the materials’ fee.

The materials’ fee must be paid no later than 5 September 2020.

In the letter with important information, you will find the link for paying. Students who have already paid the materials fee must not pay again. 

You must bring the receipt for payment with you when you pick up your student ID card. You can print the receipt or have it available on your phone, tablet or computer.

Once you have started on your programme – in addition to the costs of materials and books – there will also be expenses related to among other things, study trips and company visits.

Student identity and access card

To get your student card you must have paid the materials fee.

All of the Academy’s full-time students receive a student card which gives you access to the Academy. You must use the student card every time you print or copy. Your student card is also used for identification at exams.

The student card also gives you discounts and other benefits for transportaton, shopping etc., so you will benefit from always carrying it with you.
