Aarhus School of Architecture

The Aarhus School of Architecture, an educational institution under The Danish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Higher Education, has approximately 750 students and employs a staff of about 175. The school offers an international master in architecture as a supplement to Bachelor and Master’s degree programmes taught in Danish. The Aarhus School of Architecture was established in 1965 and has since then educated approx. 5000 Masters in architecture. The school has been instrumental in creating Aarhus’ reputation as an international city of design and architecture. With 142 architectural practices (employing 1000+ employees) Aarhus is the city in the world with the highest density of design and architecture companies, most of these companies, many of which have achieved international success, have their roots in the school. Teaching at the school is studio-based emphasising project work. The school places an emphasis on practice-based teaching while maintaining an artistic approach to architecture. To a great extent the school’s approach to architecture centres around the process of creating architectural form, through actual, often full-scale, physical models. (Source: the university’s website)

Student Accommodation

It is difficult to find student jobs, but it is allowed for EU nationals and non EU nationals (up to 15 hours per week). In order to apply for a residence permit for Denmark, students must document that they have paid the required tuition fee.

If you have been granted a tuition waiver you must instead document that you dispose of DKK 4200 (approx. €563) per month (in all DKK 50000 = approx. €6703) by including e.g. a bank statement in your own name or documentation for a grant or scholarship.
