Aarhus University is one of the university that offers a limited number of scholarships to the most gifted applicants from outside Europe.
Eligibility and requirements
In choosing scholarship receivers among the academically qualified applicants, priority will be given to applicants with outstanding academic qualifications.
Due to the limited number of scholarships available at the moment, we are not able to able to offer a scholarship to all over qualified applicants, very unfortunate.
Usually, only one or two scholarships are to be offered on each of our Master’s degree programmes. At some faculties, strategic focus may be placed on selected degree programmes or applicants from specific countries.
Benefits of this scholarship
The content of a scholarship varies from one faculty to another. In some area, the scholarship is a full or partly tuition waiver. While In other cases, the tuition waiver includes a monthly grant towards living expenses, typically but not always for the duration of your Master’s degree programme.
Some faculties only offer tuition waivers. In this case, the faculty may be able to offer other relevant services to its tuition waiver recipients, e.g. assistance in searching for a relevant student job.
Please note that if you are offered a tuition waiver only, it is a requirement for obtaining a student residence permit that you have sufficient funds to be able to support yourself financially during your stay in Denmark.
