Information about the corona virus

For students with study start at Business Academy Aarhus in August 2020

Updated July 1 12:35

We are monitoring the Covid-19 situation closely and are acting according to guidelines set out by the Danish authorities. We will, therefore, keep you informed if the COVID-19 situation changes and has any consequences regarding the start of your programme.

You will receive an email with the final letter of admission on 28 July and will be required to be on campus to start on your programme in August.

How is it possible to travel into Denmark before the start of my programme?

If you have a valid reason or a worthy purpose, as the authorities call it, you are allowed to enter Denmark.

As a student/future student at Business Academy Aarhus, you have a worthy purpose.

Please note that there may be a reduced number of international flights, trains and buses to Denmark. Please consult your airline, train operator or travel company for further info.

It's also possible to drive a car into Denmark from e.g. Germany if you can document that you have a worthy purpose. Full details of the requirements to travel into Denmark are being regularly updated and can be found in English on the Danish authorities website.

What documents do I need to enter Denmark?

When you enter Denmark, you can be asked at the border to document that you have a valid reason to enter Denmark. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you bring

  • a passport
  • printed confirmation that you have been admitted to Business Academy Aarhus
  • printed version of 'important information when entering Denmark during Covid-19'
  • printed version of this document to prove physical teaching

What if I can’t get my high school diploma in time?

We know that several countries will experience delays in issuing their diplomas. Therefore, we will accept your diplomas up until 10  August 2020 (but please send them as soon as possible). If you are unable to do this, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Is public transport running in Denmark?

Yes, almost all public transport in Denmark is back to normal with social distancing rules in place. 

Check dsb.dk (trains), Flixbus.dk (domestic and international bus) and midttrafik.dk (local bus) for schedules and further info.

If I need to self-isolate in Denmark, what should I do?

When entering Denmark, the authorities strongly encourage you to stay at home for 14 days if you come from a country the Danish authorities consider at risk. Most European countries are considered "safe" and are not required to self-isolate.

The list of countries at risk changes regularly - please stay updated here

During those 14 days, you should reduce your number of social contacts, shop online when possible and keep your distance. 

Should I wear a mask in Denmark?

On all flights to Denmark and in all Danish airports, you need to wear a mask. Apart from that, it is not necessary to wear a mask. Hardly any Danes wear a mask in everyday life and on campus you do not need to wear a mask. 

What should I do if I'm in a high-risk group?

Contact your own doctor before coming to Denmark to investigate your options.

Will my classes be physical or online?

At Business Academy Aarhus, there will be physical teaching from August 2020. That is why you need to come to the Academy in person for the start of the semester.

I would really like to speak to a person. Is this possible?

Yes, for regular matters concerning applications, study start, or practical questions, please contact us on +45 7228 6000. Please note that this number is not open from 11 July to 26 July due to the Danish summer holidays.

From 11 July to 26 July, in emergencies related to Covid-19 for students travelling to Denmark, please call or send a message to this number: (+45) 7228 6492. If unanswered, leave a message with your contact details. Please note that this number will not be active before 11 July.

Business Academy Aarhus is unable to help you find student housing, but student housing is available in Aarhus. Read more about housing for students here

Can I get my materials fee refunded if I cannot come to Denmark as a result of Covid-19?

Yes, if Covid-19 is the reason that you cannot come to Denmark, you will get a refund. Unfortunately, if it is for any other reason, it will not be refunded.
