    Campus Filmbyen:

    Campus is located in the midst of one of the strongest film and media centres in Denmark; in the heart of Filmby ("Film City") Aarhus. We benefit from close contact with related industries, from which we bring in a large number of guest lecturers.

    The city of Aarhus is a vibrant university town, close to the beach and forests, with a population of 310,000 people including more than 60,000 students in higher education. That makes Aarhus a young city with a lot of opportunities for students, including cultural experiences and a great nightlife.
