Being an exchange student

Aarhus School of Marine and Technical Engineering welcomes exchange students from all our partner institutions, each semester. A semester abroad is a fantastic chance to broaden your cultural foundation, and it will add value to you as a potential international employee. Aarhus is a university city and a very popular destination for both Danish students and for students from all over the world.

As an exchange student at AAMS, you will have an introductory programme and get a Danish buddy to help you get settled in Denmark. Your buddy is a full-degree Danish student who will help introduce you to Aarhus and get you acquainted with the city’s student life. You and your buddy decide what you would like to do within the framework of the buddy arrangement.

We will also help you with your accommodation and to get registered.
