About Aarhus University

About Aarhus University

Aarhus University is situated in the heart of Aarhus. Students are taught in architecturally distinguished yellow-brick buildings surrounded by the beautiful University Park campus, which is also the setting for many social activities and concerts for students and city residents alike. Aarhus University is a leading European research university with education and research activities in all academic fields. The university attracts 25 per cent of Danish research funding and is home to more than 30 internationally recognised research centres - including 14 Centres of Excellence supported by the Danish National Research Foundation.

Aarhus University is one of the most rapidly advancing institutions ranked among the top 100 universities worldwide. One reason for this progress is the inclusion of research talent development as a core activity in the university’s strategy. Currently, over half of Aarhus University’s more than 44,500 students are enrolled at the postgraduate level. Moreover, Aarhus University has doubled enrolments in its doctoral programmes in recent years, and the university maintains a consistent focus on the recruitment of talented international students and early career researchers. Aarhus University takes pride in its close connections with the surrounding society and is committed to societal development.

History of campus and conference venue

The first step in the history of Aarhus University was taken in hired premises on 11 September 1928, when “University Studies in Jutland” was inaugurated with 64 students enrolled. The combined staff consisted of one professor and four senior associate professors. As of  2013, Aarhus University has approximately 44,500 students and 12,000 members of staff.

With only minor modifications, the building style in the University Park has remained consistent since the architects Kay Fisker, C.F. Møller and Povl Stegmann won the architectural competition in 1931. Since 1939, the architectural firm C.F. Møller has been responsible for building activities. In a harmonious interplay with the rolling hills of the park, the uniform buildings create an attractive campus, which has achieved international renown.
