  • Teaching at Aarhus University is generally structured around lectures, seminars and practical exercises. Students are expected to take active part in the academic discussions during class.
  • Many professors require students to make one or two oral presentations during the semester. As these presentations are prepared in groups, it is a good idea to join a study group as soon as the semester begins.
  • The examination system at the Danish universities is unlike most other systems in Europe. Your final grade depends only on the official exams you complete during the semester – you are not graded for oral presentations during class, papers you submit for class, attendance and participation*, or other small projects (individual or group-based).
  • It is very important to register for exams in advance. In most departments, students must sign up for exams about a month after the beginning of the semester. You may not be allowed to take your exams if you fail to sign-up in due time.  The examination sign-up procedure varies from department to department. At some departments you register automatically when you register for a course. At other (most) departments you have to fill out a form for each course.
