  • We only accept exchange students who are already studying in the field of nutrition and health, health promotion and prevention, health intervention and foods. You need to have completed the first year of study at your home university.

    We work in close cooperation with different universities. This collaboration is to ensure that each course you complete successfully at VIA University College is credited at the home university.

    Exchange agreement needed

    Please note that we accept students from universities with which we have an exchange agreement only.

    If your university does not have an exchange agreement, please ask your coordinator to contact us in order to investigate the options of making one. 

    We can help you arrange accommodation

    When you have been accepted as an exchange student, we will arrange your accommodation unless you would like to do so yourself. You will be a resident in our student accommodation in the Danish city of Aarhus.

  • Your home institution must have an inter-institutional agreement with VIA University College in order for you to be able to apply for an exchange programme at VIA.  

    If an agreement exists, you will be able to fill in the application form. Please be aware that VIA must receive a nomination from your home institution as well.

  • Exchange students do not pay tuition fees.

    Per definition, exchange stays are an exchange of one or more students between partner universities and therefore, exchange students do not pay tuition fees.

    If you do not know, if your institution is a partner of VIA, please contact the international office at your home institution. If your institution is not a partner of VIA and you would like us to discuss the possibility of establishing an exchange agreement with your home institution, please contact us at
