Student services

The International Student Centre (ISC) is the meeting place for foreigners and Danes. It is a great place for relaxing in between studying and working. The centre has years of experience organising social activities, advising and providing practical information to foreign students living in Aarhus. The ISC is located at Student House Aarhus.

Housing services

Aarhus is a very popular city for students  and it's therefore very important that you  start applying for accommodation as soon  as you know you want to study in Aarhus!  The municipality of Aarhus has a housing  guarantee for all new students moving to  Aarhus. You can apply for youth housing via  Student Housing Aarhus, which administers  more than 8,000 homes for young people  across the city.

My Experience in BAAA
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars
It was a great experience to study in Business Academy Aarhus. The education system was quiet different from what I had experienced from India before as here we focus more on practical stuffs than theory which is obviously a good way of learning.
