|Aarhus University (AU)||2 Years|
|Master (2 years) of Agrobiology||Onsite|
The core of this program is biology, with perspectives on sustainability, environmental impact, animal health and welfare, plant health, and product quality. Students can choose between specializations including animal nutrition, plant nutrition, animal health and welfare, plant health, and pest management, or combine animal and plant sciences. Because this is a cross-disciplinary master’s, students can also choose courses from other academic programs.
Students will learn analytical and problem-solving skills, how to do research, and how to generate new knowledge. In this program, the emphasis is placed as much on the academic and professional skills as on the applied skills.
International students make up roughly one-third of each class, providing students with international knowledge and perspectives and the possibility to learn about different environments – both academic and agricultural. Because agriculture industries and environmental impacts are international, it is natural to include different national perspectives in discussions about these topics.
Denmark is an ideal place to study agriculture because of its huge food production industry, extensive agricultural research, and strict environmental regulations. International students gain the chance to learn from leaders in sustainable food production, and Danish students can learn about conditions outside Denmark.
Aarhus University’s research in agricultural sciences is cutting-edge and puts it in the front rank of agricultural science institutions worldwide. The core areas of research are climate and natural resources, environment and bioenergy, organic farming, food quality, farm animal production, and plant production.
Sustainability is a fundamental principle. The goal is to seek solutions that contribute to environmentally and economically sustainable development of the agricultural and food industries.

In 2011, Aarhus University launched the extended summer program “AU Summer University”. The program consists of a portfolio of courses taught in English at Bachelor’s or Master’s level within the fields of Arts, Business and Economics, Business Communication, Political Science and Law, Health, Science, and Technology.
In 2020, we are offering 101 English taught courses by AU lecturers and invited international guest lecturers from all over the world. All teaching at AU Summer University is based on current research and has a strong international perspective. The close link between research and education ensures the quality and depth of the courses.
AU Summer University welcomes Danish and international full-time students, exchange students and free movers. Class sizes range from 20-50 students. In 2019, almost 2800 Danish and international students decided to spend part of their summer taking specialized, intensive courses in Aarhus. 97% of the evaluated students recommended the program to their friends.
Along with the academic program, we offer accommodation services, visa services, and a social program for both lecturers and students.
The AU Summer University administration is located at the International Centre. We are located at the south end of University Park.
