Dániel, Bachelor student in Economics and Business Administration

Hey there, my name is Dániel Szilágyi. Yeah, don’t get stuck with trying to pronounce my last name (unless you speak Hungarian of course), after spending 1.5 years here there is only a handful of international people who can pull it off.

After this initial shock, I’d like to tell you a bit more about myself and my experiences here in Aarhus so far. I’m currently enrolled on the 4th semester of the BSc programme in Economics and Business Administration (BScB). After going through the difficulties (housing, jobs etc.) every incoming international student is bound to face in their first semester, I have come to realize that coming to Aarhus University was probably one of the best decisions I made. My main reason for choosing Denmark in particular as a study destination was the quality and the pragmatic approach of the higher education.

However, there are lots of other things that make your time here invaluable. Little did I know before coming here for example, how amazing it is to be part of a vibrant international community: making new connections almost every day, getting to know other cultures or discovering similarities in other nations’ languages (yes, this can be extremely funny and joyful for Hungarians). Another example is that you also profit tremendously from just living on your own here, away from your home country. You just have to develop a sense of responsibility and independence (and you are also kind of forced to learn how to cook and do your own laundry, provided that you don’t find a way to get around them).

Aarhus itself is a nice city for students: it is small enough to easily find your way around, but at the same time you can also easily find things to keep yourself busy with in your spare time.

If you have any questions regarding my university programme, or just about anything related to living here, feel free to contact me by email: or you can even find me on Facebook by this same name.
