Program Overview

Spend a semester immersing yourself in the amazing city of Aarhus in Denmark!

Semester exchange programs allow students the opportunity to earn USF college credit from a diverse set of subjects abroad, while still paying an equivalent to USF cost. Students are enrolled abroad and take classes, live, and socialize with local and other international students, gaining a truly enriching experience and in-depth cultural immersion for one to two semesters.

Exchange programs are the most competitive and students are encouraged to begin the application process early to better focus on their personal statement and gather the needed recommendations.

Location

Aarhus, Denmark

 

Founded by the Vikings because of its strategic location on the Jutland peninsula, Århus is the second largest city in Denmark and the unofficial cultural capital. Århus University is located here, as well, giving the town a young, energetic, coffeehouse feel. Yet, Århus blends old and new -- from the medieval trappings of the old town to the more modern surrounding areas. The most popular attraction is perhaps Den Gamle By (The Old Town), an open-air museum depicting early Danish life. Other noteworthy museums include the Mosegard (a 250-acre museum of prehistory) and the Århus Art Museum, which showcases Danish art. Also, check out the Gothic cathedral in the city's old section, as well as the Von Frue Kirke, which boasts a medieval crypt church. The annual Århus Festival in September is one of the most celebrated cultural events in Europe.

Host Institution

On September 15, 2004, Aarhus School of Business (ASB) celebrated its 65th anniversary. Since the founding of ASB more than 65 years ago, the school has grown and kept growing. In 1968 ASB moved from the original location down town Århus to the yellow buildings which since then have provided the setting for the outstanding research and teaching ASB stands for. Today they are an EQUIS accredited business school, they have more than 7,000 students (a significant number of which are international students) and about 450 employees.

Living Arrangements

As with many European, city-based schools, no "on-campus" similar to US style campus dorms are available. However, the university has many housing facilities throughout the city of Aarhus.
