Information about corona/covid-19 and admission

Applications for student residence permits possible from 21 April 2021

As from 21 April 2021, The Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration reopens for applications for student residence permits in Denmark. From this date, new rules apply. The new rules enable persons who have been granted a residence permit as a student to enter into Denmark. However, please note even if you have obtained a student residence permit in Denmark, additional restrictions and requirements regarding entry into Denmark may apply. Entry restrictions will differ from country to country and may change over time. Stay updated here.

Consequently, Aarhus University will initiate the process of contacting admitted applicants with regard to their application for a student residence permit, following the already announced procedures.

Deferred enrolment is not possible

Aarhus University does not offer deferred enrolment to students who cannot commence their studies due to the COVID-19 situation. Instead, applicants are kindly advised to withdraw from their enrolment and reapply in the next possible round of admissions.

Please note that your paid tuition fee will be reimbursed (until commencement of studies – see below). Your possible tuition waiver or scholarship will also be withdrawn and cannot be guaranteed when you reapply for admission.

Refund of paid tuition fees until commencement of studies

Please note that no refunding of tuition fees is possible after the date of commencement of studies, as the Danish universities do not have the legal basis to do so. If you wish to terminate your enrolment due to the COVID-19 situation, you are required to inform Aarhus University of your decision before commencement of studies 1 September 2021. See payment procedures here.

My English test center is closed. What shall I do?

Aarhus accepts the special home edition of the TOEFL iBT test offered in selected areas to meet the needs of students affected by test center closures.

Please note that Aarhus University does not accept the TOEFL ITP Plus which is offered in Mainland China.
