Our university has a long tradition of offering students opportunities to spend one or several semesters abroad. For students in the English Department, an extended stay at a another university can be particularly beneficial as it allows them to develop their language skills while exploring another culture and educational system. Students considering to apply to one of the AAU’s academic exchange programmes can get information and support at the International Office. Below is a brief overview of the most important opportunities open to those who are interested in studying abroad.
