Spring 2021 classes

What should I expect of my classes for 2021?

As a general rule, classes will take place online until the end of March. This decision has been made to make the first months of the semester as predictable as possible, and to help teaching staff provide the highest quality teaching possible under the circumstances.

Classes may only take place in person in isolated, exceptional cases where online teaching is not an option – for example in a clinical setting, in labs and in workshops.

There will be an intensified focus on making sure public health guidelines are adhered to in connection with in-person classes. If you have to take part in an exam or other activity with physical attendance, AU strongly encourages you to follow the current guidelines for tests.  

You can find information about your classes on Blackboard.

I am not able to attend classes in person on campus – what should I do?

If you are unable to come to campus due to a situation that is directly related to the Covid-19 pandemic, you can apply for an academic assistant to help you keep up with your coursework. An academic assistant can send you notes and video from teaching activities so that you can follow along from home.

Read more about the academic assistant scheme at studieassistent.au.dk and find out whether you are eligible to apply. If you are unable to keep up with your classes with the assistance of an academic assistant, contact your local studies administration office for help in clarifying how your situation will affect your programme.

All in-person exams will be held in compliance with the public health guidelines to prevent the spread of the virus. According to the health care authorities’ guidelines, unless you are infected, in self-isolation, or belong to a high-risk group, you can take part in classes on an equal footing with other students. We also recommend that you consult the guidelines for testing.

Can I meet with my study group?

The Danish health authorities advise everyone to practice social distancing. For this reason, Aarhus University strongly encourages students to use digital platforms for study group meetings. The university has made Zoom available, where several people can meet digitally at once. Study groups can also meet on Messenger, Facetime, and similar tools.  

I want to do an internship or a project-based course – what should I do?

As a rule, you have the opportunity to complete an internship, but it depends on the circumstances at your host organisation. Please follow their guidelines.

If you can't complete your internship, please contact your local studies administration to find out what you need to do.

Symptoms and infection

I have symptoms of COVID-19. What should I do?

AU’s Emdrup, Herning and Aarhus campuses are now closed. For this reason, participating in in-person activities on campus will only be a possibility in exceptional cases in which it is not possible to conduct teaching or exams online, for example in connection with teaching activities in labs, clinical settings and workshops. The guidelines below apply to everyone who enters any of AU’s locations.

If you have symptoms of Covid-19 (such as fever, coughing, sore throat, headache, muscle aches and breathing difficulties), you may not participate in any in-person activities on the university’s campuses. If you start having symptoms while you’re on campus, go home as quickly as possible. Then you must self-quarantine at home and follow the healthcare authorities’ recommendations.

AU encourages you to use the official contact tracing app smitte|stop, which is designed to support more distant/peripheral contract tracing. The app is available for Android and iOS, but is currently only supported by iOS 13.5 or later.

Access to campus

Can I come to campus?

Campus in Emdrup, Herning and Aarhus have been closed down for the time being until and including Sunday 5 April 2021. It is only possible to acces buildings in special situations where exams and teaching are carried out by physical attendance. 

Do I need to get tested before I come to campus?

On behalf of the public health authorities, AU strongly encourages all students to take a Covid-19 test before participating in any scheduled in-person exams or other activities. If you have classes you need to attend on a regular basis, we strongly encourage you to get tested at least once a week, as recommended by the health care authorities.

You can get a standard PCR test for free at a variety of locations, including on AU’s main campus in Aarhus at the Lakeside Lecture Theatres. Find out where you can get a PCR test on your region’s website or at coronaprover.dk.

Can I use the university's libraries?

AU Library’s libraries are closed to the public – provisionally through 5 April 2021.

However, it will still be possible to turn in and borrow materials for use in connection with research and teaching. The Royal Danish Library location on Victor Albecks Vej 1 is the drop-off/pick-up point.

Check AU Library's website for details.

How can I help reducing the risk of infection while I'm on campus?

Everyone at AU can help reduce the spread of COVID-19. The university is currently closed but when it re-opens, here is what you can do to help:

When you go to class:

  • Arrive at the classroom no earlier than ten minutes before your class starts.
  • Sanitise your hands whenever you enter a building, and whenever you enter a new room.
  • Avoid crowding – practice social distancing, and don’t congregate on stairs, in hallways and other places where queues tend to form.
  • Walk to the right on stairs, in hallways and other cramped spaces.
  • Don’t enter a classroom or lecture hall until the class before you has left and the room has been sanitised.
  • Take the available seat farthest from the entrance so that others don’t have to push their way past you to find a seat.
  • Always keep an eye out for local guidelines that might be printed on posters, on the floor or other surfaces in the buildings you enter.
  • If you find that it isn’t possible for you to adhere to the hygiene and social distancing guidelines in a teaching situation, tell your teacher.

When class is over:

  • Let the people seated closest to the exit leave first.
  • Your teacher may ask you to help sanitise the room. Remember to sanitise your hands before class starts, and remember to sanitise contact surfaces, like tables, chairs, light switches, door handles, etc.
  • During breaks, don’t hang out in large groups, and maintain social distancing.
  • Make sure the room is aired out, and try to create as much air flow as possible when doing so.

When you use group rooms, study spaces, etc.

  • Respect the guidelines for the maximum number of occupants in rooms
  • Don’t move tables, chairs, etc.
  • Sanitise your spot thoroughly before leaving the room (for example, armrests, table and other contact surfaces).
  • Air out the room frequently – and always during breaks. Create as much air flow as possible when airing out. 

Between classes on campus:

  • Practice social distancing in communal areas, both inside and out.

Guidelines for using face masks:

  • Read the guidelines on the use of face masks on campus

For the time being, no parties or Friday bars may be held on campus. Read also AU's guidelines for student association events.

AU encourages students to use the official contact tracing app smitte|stop, which can assist with contact tracing in the event of an outbreak.

Do I have to wear a face mask on campus?

AU’s Herning, Emdrup and Aarhus campuses are now closed – provisionally through 5 April 2021. It is only possible to access buildings in exceptional situations where exams and teaching activities are conducted in person on campus. In such cases, the guidelines below apply.

While on campus, students, employees and others must wear face masks or visors when moving around indoors. For example, this applies in canteens, in hallways and in other communal areas. Employees and students may take the face covering off while seated.

According to the Danish Health Authority, some groups of people may be exempted from the face covering requirement e.g. if you have respiratory problems. Read more here to find out if this applies to you.

Read more about guidelines for face masks on campus


The face mask requirement will apply at least until 5 April 2021.

Follow the Danish Health authority's instructions on how to wear a face mask correctly.

  1. Wash your hands or use hand sanitiser before putting on your mask
  2. Make sure you turn the mask the right way. The coloured side of disposable masks is usually the front.
  3. When putting on the mask, hold it by the ear loops. Make sure it fits close to your face and that it covers both your nose and your mouth.
  4. Don’t touch the face mask while wearing it. Change masks often, and always change masks if your mask gets wet or dirty.
  5. Take off the mask by holding the ear loops and lifting them off. Dispose of the mask immediately. Cloth face masks should be put into a bag and washed at 60 degrees. You should only use a face mask once before washing it or disposing of it.
  6. Wash your hands or use hand sanitiser after taking off your mask.

International students coming to AU

I’m coming to Aarhus University in Spring 2021, what do I need to know?

On the page Corona information for international students we have gathered all the information you need about coming to Denmark and Aarhus University in these special times.

 

IMPORTANT UPDATE 26 February 2021:

To prevent the spread of new variants of coronavirus, the Danish government has tightened the entry rules for foreign citizens including international students.

This means that international students are currently not allowed to enter Denmark.

The new entry rules are valid up to and including 5 April, 2021.

 

 

Which safety measures have been taken to limit the spread of Covid-19 at Aarhus University?

At AU all safety measures to limit the spread of Covid-19 are in line with Danish legislation. You can read about the safety measures in this FAQ. Further inquiries may be send to International Director, Ms. Rikke Nielsen at rikkenielsen@au.dk.

AU IT

Is it safe to use Zoom for classes and exams?

The coronavirus crisis has led to a significant increase in the use of Zoom worldwide, and there have been a number of critical stories in the media about security problems with the solution.

We would like to stress that you may use Zoom for classes and exams as long as you use the official AU Zoom solution, and as long as you do not use the platform for anything that involves sensitive personal data or confidential data.

AU has a contract with Zoom through the Danish e-infrastructure Cooperation (DeiC). The agreement includes all of the standard data protection clauses normally found in European contracts.

For this reason, it is important that you always use the official AU Zoom solution. Never use the free version of Zoom, and do not buy a licence for the standard version from Zoom’s own website.

You can access AU’s Zoom solution by creating a user profile through Blackboard, zoom.au.dk or aarhusuniversity.zoom.us.


Keep your Zoom client up to date.

Zoom is constantly updating their technology to improve IT security. This means it’s important that you update your Zoom client to the latest version whenever an update is released.


Ongoing security assessments

AU assesses the security of Zoom regularly, and you can read more about the IT security of the Zoom solution AU uses on DeiC’s website (in Danish): www.deic.dk/da/news/2020-04-02/zoomfaq


You can also read more in the news article on medarbejdere.au.dk. 

How do I get remote access to the library's databases?

If you need to search for literature in the library's databases, please go to the AU Library website https://library.au.dk/.

You should always log in via WAYF (never NemID, which doesn’t give you remote access to the library’s databases).

If you have any problems accessing the literature after logging in, send an email to Ask the Library (kb@kb.dk).    

Current international full degree students

I am a current international student at AU – can I stay in Denmark?

Yes, you can stay in Denmark and continue your studies at AU. Staying in Denmark may be the best option for you. Travel options are limited, and you risk bringing corona contagion with you if you leave.  

I am an international student at AU currently staying in another country – can I enter Denmark now that the borders are closed?

You can enter if you are a current resident in Denmark.

While the border is closed please bring the following documentation to cross the border:  valid passport, your yellow CPR-card, your Danish residence permit and your residence card (if you are a Non-EU citizen), your EU residence document or personal legitimation with address (if you are an EU citizen).

Stay updated or get more info at coronasmitte.dk

What if my studies are extended, will I have to pay tuition for another semester?

No. Tuition fees corresponding to 30 ECTS credits are paid in advance for each semester until the degree programme has been paid for, regardless of delays relative to the prescribed standard period of study.  

Studying abroad – Spring 2021

I am planning to study abroad in spring 2021. Can I go?

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs advises against all travel worldwide - se more here. Therefore AU recommends that you carefully reconsider your planned exchange stay at this time. By cancelling now, you will be able to plan the upcoming semester at AU instead.  

It is AU’s assessment that the tightened travel restrictions, both in and out of Denmark, are designed to limit travel activity as much as possible.

In light of the travel restrictions, and of conditions in most host countries where healthcare services are stretched to the limit, and where hard lockdowns and border closures frequently occur, it is AU’s assessment that conditions are too uncertain for completing an exchange stay abroad at this time. We understand that it is a disappointment to be unable to proceed with an exchange that you have been planning and looking forward to for so long. Unfortunately the coronavirus is a factor that we cannot change, and your personal safety is our foremost consideration.

 

If you choose not to cancel

If you choose not to cancel, carefully consider the following issues, among others:

  • Your destination country’s entry restrictions and self-isolation rules. These may change with short notice, and may impact semester start
  • If you haven’t already booked a ticket, doing so may be difficult and expensive
  • You risk being stranded abroad if you decide to travel home on short notice
  • You may risk not being able to access healthcare services if your destination country’s healthcare resources are overwhelmed
  • Your travel insurance may not cover corona-related illness
  • Stay in close touch with your host university and follow their recommendations
  • Your host university may cancel your planned exchange on very short notice, which will reduce your options for completing your semester

 

We would like to hear from you, regardless of your decision

Please notify your international coordinator as soon as possible. If you would like to discuss your situation, please do not hesitate to contact us.  

Can I postpone my study abroad to Autumn 2021?

Unfortunately not. An exchange period cannot be postponed to a new academic year.

What if I want to cancel my study abroad in Spring 2021?

Please contact your international coordinator, who will in turn register your cancellation, inform your host university, and advise you regarding course registration at AU.

My study abroad has been cancelled and now I need temporary accomodation, what do I do?

Due to a significant drop in the number of incoming exchange students AU has a limited number of furnished accommodations available. The tenancies are spread throughout the city of Aarhus and span from dormitory rooms to shared apartments and shared houses. If you are interested, please contact AU Housing at housing@au.dk as soon as possible. 

PhD students

Where do I find more information about travel and entry into Denmark as an international PhD student?

Find targeted information on travel and entry into Denmark for international employees, PhD students and guests at https://ias.au.dk/coronaviruscovid-19/ . You can find additional information on Aarhus University's website for employees at https://medarbejdere.au.dk/corona/til-medarbejdere/

Winter 2020/2021 exams

What will the new restrictions mean for my exams?

As a rule, all exams must take place online. To give you maximum certainty about your exams, the university has decided that this will apply to all exams and re-exams during the current exam period. However, there may be exceptional cases in which in-person exams are necessary, for example for clinical courses, lab courses and other courses with a practical dimension. There may also be cases in which it is not practicable to offer exams online, for example because of time constraints or out of consideration for the quality of the specific exam. There will be an even greater focus on making sure everyone adheres to the public health guidelines in connection with exams that take place in person.

Check your local study portal for information about changes to your exams. Students at Aarhus BSS should consult the faculty’s FAQ.

How should I prepare for my online exam?

Here are some tips for how to prepare for your online exam.

  • Familiarise yourself thoroughly with the exam you are taking. You will find this information on your study portal in the exam schedule for the individual course. Students at Arts will find this information in the course catalogue.
  • Find out what equipment you need, e.g. a computer, a webcam and a charged mobile phone. Test that the equipment is working well in advance of the exam.
  • Find out what programmes you need for the exam in question, e.g. Zoom, Digital Exam or Wiseflow. Test that the programmes work well in advance of the exam. This also applies if you have to submit your assignment in PDF format. Check that you are able to convert your assignment into the right format.
  • If you need to use Zoom in the exam, read the guidelines on how to use Zoom in exams. For IT security reasons, it is important that you follow the guidelines.
  • Make sure that you know whom to contact and what to do if you experience technical problems during an oral exam. 
  • Make sure you know how to avoid cheating on your exams. Be particularly aware that you are not allowed to talk to anyone during an individual exam – not even if you’re taking the exam at home. Read more on AU’s website on cheating at exams or read the leaflet Avoid pitfalls at exams.
  • Ask your teacher before the exam if you are in doubt about anything.


You’ll find more god advice on online oral exams on Studypedia, and check your study portal for up-to-date information.    

What should I do if I experience technical problems in my oral online exam?

If you can’t log on to the chosen exam platform (Zoom) at the beginning of the exam, or if you have technical problems during the exam that make it impossible for you to complete it, you must contact your examiner or IT support immediately. Check your study portal to find out what specific guidelines apply to your degree programme (link below). No matter what, you will not have used an exam attempt if you are unable to complete your exam due to technical difficulties.

You will not be asked to document the technical difficulties. On the other hand, we do recommend that you makes sure that you understand exactly how your online exam will be conducted.

How do I avoid cheating on my exams?

AU’s general rules on cheating at exams are the same as always. The university trusts that you as a student want to earn your grades honestly, and we expect you to familiarise yourself with the rules and follow them while taking exams in the new online formats.

Here are some issues you should be particularly aware of.

  • You are allowed to use aids for all written and oral exams unless otherwise indicated in the description of a specific exam. We recommend that you always read the description of the specific exam on your study portal. Students at Arts will find this information in the course catalogue. This is where you can read about how specific exams will be administered.
  • If you are supposed to write an individual exam paper for your online exam, you are not allowed to collaborate with others during the exam: you have to write the paper yourself. This means that you may not share good advice, tips and tricks with your fellow students. And you may not share your paper with others, or ask others to share theirs with you. Breaking this rule will be considered cheating, and you risk sanctions that can seriously affect your studies at Aarhus University.
  • If your exam is an oral exam, you will be asked to identify yourself with your AU ID card. You may be asked to pan the room with your webcam to show that no one else is in the room with you. You are allowed to have guests at your exam, but they have to be visible in the background during the exam. It counts as cheating if there are people in the room who participate in or provide input to your work.


It’s a good idea to read the leaflet Avoid pitfalls at exams or read more on our site about cheating at exams. If you still have any questions about your specific exam, you are welcome to contact your teacher or your local studies administration office.

  • You are the primary caregiver for a child/children who cannot attend school or daycare in person. As documentation, you must attach a solemn declaration – download the form here.


If you are unable to participate in an exam due to illness, the following questions/answers in the FAQ can help you:

How might my travel affect my exam?

Aarhus University is adhering to the authorities’ guidelines for travel to Denmark: https://coronasmitte.dk/en/entry-into-denmark as well as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark’s travel guidelines (https://um.dk/da/rejse-og-ophold/rejse-til-udlandet/coronavirus/).

If you have been travelling in an ‘orange’ or ‘red’ country, you must comply with the public health authorities’ guidelines and self-isolate for 10 days before participating in any in-person exams on campus. You may end your self-isolation earlier if you take a PCR test and test negative no earlier than the fourth day after your entering Denmark.  You must be able to present the test results on request.

If your travel activity affects your ability to participate in an in-person exam, you should be aware that this may have consequences for your exam. Contact your local studies administration office (see contact details at the top of the page). If you are a student at Aarhus BSS, you should check your faculty’s corona FAQ for more information.
