The city of Aalborg is home to Denmark’s most innovative and internationalized university. Programs taught in English include international cultural studies and communication, media studies, psychology, Danish studies, international management, architecture and design, art and technology and media. Excellent graduate engineering programs are offered in English.
Situated in the northern part of the Jutland peninsula, Aalborg is the fourth largest city in Denmark. The city is situated at the narrowest stretch of the picturesque Limfjord; extensive beaches and other impressive scenery are within easy reach. Aalborg, an old historic city, received its municipal charter in 1342; many old buildings still function as natural elements in the townscape. For many years, Rebild Bakker, a beautiful hilly area just south of Aalborg, has been the venue for the national celebration of links with America by Danes and Danish-Americans. The Danish Emigration Archives are housed in Aalborg.
The main university campus is situated in the southeastern part of the city, approximately five kilometers from the city centre. In the city centre, there is an excellent Student House. The city has fine connections with Copenhagen (plane, bus, rail), as well as with Norway, Sweden (Gothenburg is just 3 hours away by high-speed ferry), and continental Europe.
Courses in the Faculty of Humanities are open to ISEP exchange students.
The Faculty of Humanities offers the following programs: Culture, Communication and Globalization (CCG), and International Cultural Studies. The International Cultural Studies program is popular with undergraduate students studying international relations, literature, and political science http://www.hum.aau.dk/ics/.
Students typically enroll in 6-7 classes per term which averages to 12-14 hours in class per week. A term runs for 8-10 weeks followed by supervised project work and exams.
ISEP students are housed in student residence halls or in private accommodation. A stipend is provided to cover the cost of meals.
The orientation program includes introduction to the city of Aalborg and the university, guided walks, and more. The program includes events organized during the first couple of weeks.
Pick-up will be arranged at Aalborg Airport or at the train/bus station for students who arrive on the official arrival day.
Community Engagement (Internships, Service-Learning, Volunteering, etc.)
Some international students choose to work as volunteers at the Students' House (Students' Union) in downtown Aalborg, for instance staffing the café.
