Just like any other university, Aarhus University has high academic standards and requires that international students keep up with these standards.

Students are expected to complete 30 ECTS credits per semester and complete at least the equivalent number of study hours.

ECTS credits indicate the student workload required to complete a course. They reflect the relationship between the quantity of work required by each course and the quantity of work required to complete a full year of academic study at Aarhus University.

In ECTS, 60 credits represent the workload of one academic year of study (two semesters), whereas 30 credits represent one semester. Credits are only granted for completed courses.
