Arrival and welcome

Welcome activities January and February 2023 - Campus Aalborg

Online arrival session

Venue; Online

AAU Admissions Office will host an online session 25 January from 1.30PM to 3PM CET for international students starting 1 February 2023. 

Here we will go through important information about life as a student in Denmark, including how to find and use the doctor, how to register for residence permit (only EU residents, as non-EU already have student visa) and how to register for the health insurance card.

New students must access the Need to do information and registration forms online, which you find below on this page. 

Please note that you will still need to register with the Danish authorities in person at their locations. You can find the addresses in the Need to do information and you must print and bring the forms for registration.
