Aarhus University offers unique, alternative opportunities for research and education cutting across many different subjects, for the benefit of both students and researchers, as well as the authorities and the business community. These interdisciplinary combinations provide exceptional opportunities. Aarhus University combines quality in its services with diversity – a diversity that also makes sure that the university is in wide-reaching contact with all the important sectors of society.

Aarhus University has an international focus and makes targeted efforts to attract researchers and students from abroad.

Research and education
Academic values form the basis for all activities at Aarhus University. Via curious research, critical analysis and ongoing debate, researchers and students endeavour to find new ways to gain insight, understanding and education for the benefit of society as a whole.

The university consists of nine main academic areas. Combined, they cover the entire research spectrum – basic research, applied research, strategic research and research-based advice to the authorities. In all degree programmes, research and education are closely connected, and the research-based instruction – including teaching that spans the main academic areas – ensures the depth of the degree programmes.

A visionary university
The mission of Aarhus University is to ensure and develop knowledge, welfare and culture through research and research-based education, knowledge dissemination and external advice.

The vision of Aarhus University is to belong to the elite of universities and to contribute to the development of national and global welfare via outstanding research and world-class degree programmes.

The values of Aarhus University are based on the ethical challenges regarding freedom and independence that are described in the Magna Charta of European Universities . Staff and students at Aarhus University work enquiringly and critically, in open and dynamic interaction with the surrounding world.
