Aarhus’ international students have access to an International Centre which offers an orientation programme as well as support and guidance during their time at the university. Danes were recently ranked as the best non-native English speakers in the world, so it is easy for international students to get along in Denmark even if they don’t speak Danish.

All international Masters students and graduates are given access to career counselling services and a free job bank. The green card residence permit which allows students to complete a higher education programme in Denmark allows students to stay in Denmark for six months after graduation so they have time to look for work.
