Personal assessment
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? If one compare to student "kollegiet" or family houses as offered by the university of Aarhus, there are more place than family houses and more privacy than in Kollegiet (10 students usually share one common commodity room) in appartments (usually owned by students abroad). Obviously, there are exceptions to this statement.
Personal comments:
One Danish people's specificity is the cleanliness. You won't have bad surprise when you'll discover you're accomodation. Another positive point to concede to Danish is their organisation. Nearly everything is already planned (sometimes too many things!), and consequently, a lot of paper comes out of any modification of your "administrative" status. The drawback of it is slowliness...

Personal social experience
Amazing! Hardly had time to study.
Plenty to do when I had the time.
Did not get involved.
Describe host city: Student life dominates the city
Activities: Takes place mostly within the university/student environment
Travel: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Nightlife: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
I use to go to private parties in different students houses or in the University almost every Thursday night. It is quite common because if you chose to go out to a club or a pub it is quite expensive. Not many students can afford it. I went out down town only one night to know it. It was good but I found everything expensive. Anyway, if you like walking, the city it is very nice.

My academic experiences
Quality of courses
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
For undergraduate studies, it is more of a difficult task to choose courses since undergraduate education has a stricter formation both at home and host universities. Some desired courses need prerequisites and they are therefore unavailable to exchange students.

My opinion of the university assessment
Exams at end of course
Liked it.
It was alright.
A bit annoying.
Didn't like it.
Exams throughout the course
Essays and/or projects at the end of course.
Essays and/or projects throughout the course
Personal comments:
Calendars are determined in advance but they are subject to change. The way exchange students are examined are different than the already students of the university in terms of the form and date of examination. These issues are have to be clarified earlier in the semester.

Language difficulties
No problems.
I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Administrative / Institutional
Language of instruction: English
Was learning English a key decision factor?
No, it wasn't.
Personal comments:
Using English does not pose a problem to me at all since this is the language that I use in my home university. However, with the European students who are more familiar with their own native languages obviously, an effort must be made on my part to try to understand the message that they are bringing across. Thus, for a preject meeting to end well, I have to take the initiative to start the ball rolling and give constructive ideas during the meeting. But it is important to know that they often have great ideas as well, but they just need a little more time to express themselves using English. However, the Danes have an exceptionally good standard of English relative to other Europeans, thus, communication with the adminstration poses no problem at all.

The accessibility of student needs
Second-hand text books
Very easy.
Minimal effort.
Accessible but required effort.
Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Money from home
Main source of funding:
An ERASMUS grant
Other sources of funding:
Personal savings
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits:
Because everything is much more expensive, especially travelling (exorbitant!!!). I didn´t use phone much, but CBB is much cheaper than Czech operators, especially as regards SMS.
Travel, Food, Overall, Nightlife, Housing: was more expensive than at home.
Telephone: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
buy a bike (there is a police auction every first Wednesday in the month) - although you might not believe it, it is possible to ride it even in winter. Bus tickets are quite expensive. Food is OK if you shop in Netto, Aldi. Bars, cafés etc. are very expensive.

Not really important.
Campus life
Party / people
Weather / Location

I wish I had known more about the location of the city which does blockade cheap means of travel both inside Denmark and towards outside of the country.
In my opinion:
Most people loved it.

During my experience abroad, I ...
Became familiar with another culture
Happened all the time.
Happened quite a lot.
Happened a bit.
Didn't happen.
Improved language skills
Met people from other countries
Became more independent
Partied a lot
Experienced a change in life
Advanced my studies/career
Personal recommendation:
A really peaceful city hosts this university and its students which predominates and vitalizes the local life. However, the city is still far away from being a big city / capital or a metropolitan centre. For those of you who are oming from bigger cities will experience this forementioned difference both reflected on the social life and the life in relation to the academy.


Aarhus is a port city an the second largest city in Denmark which is truly located in the midst of the Jutland peninsula. However, it is not easy and inexpensive to travel to this city. You have to take a flight to Copenhagen and take another flight or take a train to Aarhus. This is costly as well Since Copenhagen itself and Aarhus is not a popular flight destination for lowcost carriers. These facts have to be acknowledged before planning your trip to the host city.
