International Center

International Center (IC) is a service office for international PhD scholars, a place where they can get practical and administrative help to solve any problems arising in connection with their studies and work at Aarhus University or their residence in Denmark. The office provides a general service to all main academic areas around the country and refers questions to experts from within or outside the university for more specific information. However, some services are limited in their geographical scope, and are currently only available to scholars studying and working in Aarhus.
