Orientation Days

Save the date: 19 August 2020

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, things will be both conducted physically and online. We strongly recommend that you participate. 

Orientation Day is a perfect opportunity for all new international students at Business Academy Aarhus to meet and make new friends across different programmes.

Here are just some reasons why you should attend:

  • Get all the important information in one place concerning residency and CPR number (Danish ID), an introduction to Aarhus, SU – Danish scholarship, tips on how to find a job, and much more...
  • Build your network from the beginning, making your transition to Denmark and the Academy much easier
  • It is the first chance to meet your classmates and other new international students
  • Participation at the fair is free with lunch and a drink in our basement bar included
  • Show how brainy you are and win cinema tickets in our quiz about Aarhus
  • And most importantly - Have fun!

Get Residence Permit and CPR (Personal Identification Number)

Save the date: to be announced

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 the registration event at Dokk1, Hack Kampmanns Plads 2, 8000 Aarhus C.
