In the autumn semester 2013 the International Centre (IC) offers to assist new international researchers and PhD students in Aarhus with registration at the authorities and by providing need-to-know information upon arrival in Denmark. Accompanying spouses/partners are also welcome.

The event is held every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month under the title “Getting Started in Denmark -  Registration and orientation”.

The event takes place at 9am to 12pm and the first event is on Friday 6 September 2013.

We take care of all the practicalities!

During the programme the participants will…

  • Get registered at the relevant authorities (municipality/Citizen’s Service, tax office, State Administration, etc.) and get a CPR number usually on the spot.
  • Get the necessary need-to-know information about infurances, work permits, health insurance, etc.
  • Get introduced to AU services for international academic staff and get a short introduction to where to get help at Aarhus University in relation to various issues.


The event starts out at the International Centre, Høegh-Guldbergs Gade 4, 8000 Aarhus C and ends at the International Citizen Service (ICS), Nordhavnsgade 4, 8000 Aarhus. IC takes care of the transport to the ICS, but participants are expected to find their own way back to campus (map, taxi information, etc. will be provided on the spot).

How to register

Participants are to fill out the registration form on Deadline to sign up is the day before the event.

You are also welcome to show up on the day, however, with the risk of the event having been cancelled due to a lack of people signing up.

See the programme and link to sign up.

Please note!

The event is less relevant for people who are not living in the municipality of Aarhus as the registration with the authorities, then, cannot be done at the ICS. However, all international academic staff and their spouses  are welcome to participate and get the need-to-know on arrival information and they will be guided on where to register in their municipality.

IC primarily recommends the event to people connected to the Aarhus campus.

The event has been organized in cooperation with Work in Denmark West and International Citizen Service in Aarhus.
