The semester consists of one mandatory module, plus two modules chosen by you. You can take maximum three modules equivalent of 30 ECTS in total.
You will be studying in an international study environment at VIA University College at Campus Aarhus C. The Campus is brand new and located in the city centre of Aarhus.
The international students come from many different countries. Most come from Europe.
Our teaching methods promote different and varied work and study forms, such as lectures, discussions, student presentations and group activities. Some of the teaching approaches are process-based.
Collaboration between teachers and students is based on the students’ individual initiative and independent work.
The practical perspective: Danish school culture
As an international student, you will study Danish school culture close up as a part of your semester. We consider the practical perspective of the teaching profession to be very important.
We will allocate you to a Danish primary or lower secondary school or a boarding school for a period of time.The cost of the boarding school will be 1.000 kr. (135 euro) for each international student, which covers cost of food for two weeks.
The stay will give you the opportunity to see how Danish students learn in various learning environments. There will also be opportunities for you to visit classes with a focus on specific aspects of teaching.
