Description

Aalborg University (AAU), situated in three large cities in Denmark, offers a wide range of English-taught bachelor and master programs. AAU has provided students with academic excellence, cultural engagement and personal development since its inception in 1974, but despite being a fairly young university, AAU is already ranked amongst the best and most acknowledged international universities in the world.

AAU strives to better its position by constantly raising the bar in order to maintain a strong learning curve. In recent years, AAU has moved up the international lists of university rankings. The great majority of ranking lists name AAU, and AAU is thus in the top 2% of the world's 17,000 universities.

AAU study method gathers international acclaim

AAU is unique in many ways but one leading thing is the study method called “The Aalborg Model for Problem Based Learning (PBL)”. The method is highly respected both nationally and internationally, and the students obtain an important academic and social dimension in both group projects and research.

AAU offers education and research within the fields of natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, technical and health sciences. All research and study programs have a heavy emphasis on sustainability and providing interdisciplinary solutions to the problems facing our world of today.

Build a large network by connecting with AAU

AAU’s main campus is in Aalborg, which has been named the happiest city in Europe by the Business Insider some years back. Next to being a great city to work and study in, AAU focuses on providing staff and students with a large network and through the PBL you will build a close relationship with students, researches and the industry both nationally and internationally.

State of the art laboratories and close co-operation with industry

AAU currently consolidates and further develops its profile as a dynamic and innovative research and educational institution oriented towards the surrounding world. It is characterized by combining a keen engagement in local, regional, and national issues with an active commitment to international collaboration. With a persistent dedication to the pursuit of excellence, AAU offers supreme educational experiences across a broad spectrum of academic fields.

The professors were qualified and very engaged in the sessions: co-creation and interaction and problem-based projects. If I should point out one thing they could work on it is the administration.

I did both my bachelor and masters at Aalborg University and have been very happy to attend Aalborg University. In my experience, the quality of the teaching at the master's was much higher than the bachelor and I would, therefore, recommend everyone to do their master's there. It is highly professional teaching going on and in a way that has qualified me for the life after university. The university has a very good atmosphere and a great study environment - with a mix of Danish and international students adding to the atmosphere.

The university pursues the problem-based-learning approach, where a majority of the learning process consists of projects. (Usual distribution in a bachelor's program: 15 ECTS project 3x 5-ECTS courses). That works for me, personally, great, because I learn the most during those large-scale projects. Almost all are also done in groups, so I learned to cooperate with others (more or less). Sometimes, however, this group work can be counter-productive, as it heavily depends on the specific mix of members. __The environment is dynamic and diverse, with many international students attending (this is going to change, as the new policies from the Danish government will soon shut down several English-language bachelor programs, including mine). __The teachers are mostly qualified and their methods and contents are relevant. There have been one or two exceptions in the two years, where I felt like the professor or a supervisor had no idea what they were talking about.__The building is beautiful, well placed near an S-train station. It's modern, spacious, and has everything students need.__The canteen has a wide selection of meals, salads, and there's always a vegetarian menu, too. It is a bit pricey, though, so you might be better of bringing your own food. There are many microwaves and kitchens throughout the buildings. __The university has a Friday bar (to which not so many students go to, even though the campus has ca 4000 students) with cheap beer, music and board games. __Overall, I am very satisfied with the education this university has provided me with, overlooking the minor criticism points. __(The program I am attending is called IT, Communication and New Media).
