Visiting Scholars

Scholars visiting the Danish School of Education

Each year, the Danish School of Education at Aarhus University employs a great number of researchers from other institutions as visiting scholars. This page contains information about the options for support for these visiting scholars.

International Academic Staff Services (IAS)

The IAS provide services for non-employed visiting scholars at Aarhus University. They help to obtain the proper registrations and permits, including applications for residence and work permits for visiting scholars, as well as providing information and guidance about childcare options, school enrolment, language tuition etc.


The Danish School of Education sends researchers on short-term teaching and training visits to Erasmus partner universities, and we also welcome researchers and PhD students from these partner universities. An Erasmus partnership agreement is always required for this; but if no such agreement exists, it can be drawn up. The International Office at Emdrup Campus sets up Erasmus agreements. Scholars and PhD students who visit DPU under the Erasmus scheme do not receive any financial support from AU, but are funded solely by their home universities combined with their Erasmus scholarship.
