Program Description:

Aarhus School of Architecture

Aarhus is a dynamic city on the Jutland peninsula in Denmark. The beach, harbor and forest are all within a 15-minute bike ride from the city. Aarhus has the highest concentration of students in Denmark and a lively study environment as it is home to many of the country’s educational institutions. As a university city, Aarhus is the youngest in Denmark measured average age, but historically one of the oldest. Aarhus has many historic quarters which are integrated into the modern city. These quarters are characterized by narrow and cobblestoned streets with beautiful houses which are dominated by older architecture. Aarhus thus has an atmosphere of a vibrant mix of youthful energy and blasts from the past.

The University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning, and the Aarhus School of Architecture (Arkitektskolen i Aarhus) have a formal agreement outlining an exchange program for students and faculty. The Aarhus School of Architecture, established in 1965, offers an international master in architecture as a supplement to Bachelor and Master’s degree programs taught in Danish. The school has been instrumental in creating Aarhus’ reputation as an international city of design and architecture. With 142 architectural practices Aarhus is the city in the world with the highest density of design and architecture companies, most of these companies, many of which have achieved international success, have their roots in the school.
Students may attend classes and studio for one semester or one year abroad in Aarhus.  Individual courses of study are developed by faculty advisors at both institutions. Students participate in the daily activities of one of the ongoing studios in Aarhus. Fluency in Danish is not required.

Aarhus School of Architecture is a youthful institute of education - dynamic and flexible. The school keeps up with the times and rapidly assimilates new professional development tendencies. Students and teachers exchange and discuss ideas and suggest solutions in an open study environment. Day-to-day studies take place in the school's drawing offices (studios) and are supplemented with introductions, lectures, project presentations and critique. Teaching is combined with study trips to see exciting works of architecture around the world.
Housing is available for students in the largest dormitory in Aarhus called “Skjoldhøjkollegiet.” This dormitory is nearby to the city center and can be reached by several bus lines. Buses also run frequently from the dormitory to local shops and businesses. A small convenience store and gym are located at “Skjoldhøjkollegiet” at the disposal of all residents.  For more information visit the housing information website.
