In June 2021, Danish politicians have decided that as a general rule, Danish business academies can no longer admit new students to English-language programmes as of the autumn semester 2022. This also applies to Business Academy Aarhus, with a few exceptions (Multimedia Design and Digital Concept Development).

Business Academy Aarhus regrets that this decision has been made but as a public sector institution, we must follow the political decision.

All students starting an international programme in 2021 have the right to complete their programme.

Please consult our FAQ about what consequences this has for new students starting in 2021
