Staff and Accompanying Partners at Aarhus University

We offer international staff members and accompanying partners free Danish courses at beginner and advanced levels. The courses are planned as a cooperation between Aarhus University and Lærdansk Aarhus and most courses take place on campus. We have highly educated and experienced teachers and use modern materials to ensure a fast and efficient learning process. All our courses are consistent with the Common European Framework of Reference for Language.

Please note: The Ministry has changed the law regarding free Danish education and has introduced a deposit. A deposit of DKK 1.250 is required before starting your free Danish language course. The deposit will be returned to you whenever you choose to deregister from the Danish courses. After you register you will recieve more information.
