Orientation Days

Save the date: 19 August 2020 10.00 to 13.00

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. It is your chance to make your transition to Denmark and the Academy much easier, meet your classmates and other new international students and build your new network from the beginning.

Join the online Orientation Day event here - be ready at 10.00 a.m.

You can join either from a browser (like Google Chrome), or you can use the Microsoft Teams app - if you have it installed on your computer.

Please make sure that you turn off your own camera and microphone when you join the session.

Questions will be possible through the chat.

Get Residence Permit and CPR (Personal Identification Number)

Each autumn semester we arrange for incoming EU/EEA students to get

  • their residence permit (only for EU/EEA students) and
  • their CPR number (only for students living in the municipality of Aarhus).

If you arrive in Denmark more than 6 weeks before semester start, you will need to arrange these permits yourself and make your own appointment (see more here)

There are two steps to the process

STEP 1: Apply for a CPR number online:

  • You may apply online when you have a confirmed housing offer in the municipality of Aarhus. Non-EU/EEA students have already received their residence permit (ST1).
  • You must apply for a CPR number at least 3 days before you meet up physically.

STEP 2: Finalise the registration for a CPR number and EU residence permit (EA/EEA students) by attending a registration event at Dokk1, Hack Kampmanns Plads 2, 8000 Aarhus C.

What you need to do now

Follow the links below for information on how to apply for a CPR number online, book an appointment to finish your registrations in person at Dokk1, and find information about what to bring for the registration event.

Nordic students - registration proces: Nordic students must book an appointment to finish registrations in person at Dokk1. 

EU/EEA students - registration process: Students from the EU/EEA (incl. Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Great Britain) must book an appointment to finish registrations in person at Dokk1. You must book an appointment no later than 2 days before the date you wish to finish your registrations at Dokk1.

Students from outside the EU/EEA - registration process: Students from outside the EU/EEA must book an appointment to finish registrations in person at Dokk1. You must book an appointment no later than 2 days before you wish to complete your registration.

After study start, please stay up to date on the student's intranet (called Study Update).
