The AU Workplace in Focus

Twice a year, all new international employees can learn more about AU when the International Staff Office hosts the seminar AU Workplace in Focus.


During the two-hour session you will learn more about the AU workplace, get answers to typical questions about your professional life at the university, including everyday working practices, occupational health, terms of employment, salary negotiations and workplace assessments.

The event is held twice a year in the spring and autumn.
