Expat Reception

Expat Reception

Aarhus University, Aarhus Festival and partners invite expats and their families to a special reception in the Festival restaurant on Saturday 1 September from 15:00 to 17:00.

Read the invitation with registration link. Please indicate company name or educational institution when you sign up.

The reception for expats is an annual tradition, each year attracting 500-800 people. At the reception, you can relax with your family and make friends with other expats. During the event you may enjoy some light refreshments prepared by chef Lars Kyllesbech, the founder of restaurant Mefisto in the old Latin Quarters. You will hear a few words from the Mayor of Aarhus, Jacob Bundsgaard, John Westensee, Deputy University Director at Aarhus Univer­sity and Ken Cordes, Managing Director at Emerson Climate Technologies.

Taking place in the heart of Aarhus, the reception is just a stone’s throw from a number of other entertaining and engaging festival activities for the whole family, making the reception the perfect excuse for a day of family fun.

Aarhus University will be there represented by the University International Club (UIC), PhD House Activity Group and staff from the International Academic Staff Services.

We look forward to welcoming you to the city and to AU.
