Every Summer and Winter VIA Summer School offers courses in Denmark and abroad

VIA Summer School

VIA Summer School thanks everyone attending VIA Summer School 2018 and we look forward to welcoming you in 2019. The full list of courses is ready and the application system is open. Remember to apply before May 1. 

VIA Summer School is VIA University College’s summer and winter school. We offer 2-4 weeks intensive course - most of them for credits and in English. Courses take place primarily at our new, beautiful City Campus in Aarhus City Centre. Some courses might take place in other locations or abroad – find more information about this on the individual course sites.

We offer courses within health, teaching, pedagogy, social work, engineering, construction, information and communication technology.  All courses offer hands-on experience within the respective fields and are based on an applied science approach. Many courses also offer a cross disciplinary approach and students from various disciplines attend.

We welcome Danish and international full-time students, students from our partner institutions and any other interested and qualified students both from Denmark and abroad.

We also offer courses within continued education in cooperation with selected partner universities from around the world.

The list of intensive summer school courses can be found here.

But instead of taking our word for it, listen to what former students have to say about being a part of VIA Summer School.
