Miriam, Master student in Political science



I am Miriam Hargasova, originally from Slovakia, I did my bachelor’s at the University of Vienna and am very happy to be doing my master’s in Political Science at the BSS faculty of Aarhus University. I have always dreamed of living in Scandinavia and choosing Aarhus has proven to be the right decision.  

Studying at AU has turned out to be so much more than I thought it would, both personally and professionally. It ranks among the world’s top universities and offers a high quality education in an informal setting for which the Danish teaching system is known. The Department of Political Science offers a wide range of courses to choose from - no matter where your interests lie, chances are, you can find a course for you. Not to mention the campus - beautiful in every season.   

Aarhus, though not exactly a big city, has its charm - there is always something going on, so you will not be bored, if you do not want to be. And yes, quite a few days are rainy and windy, but Danes have mastered the art of ‘hygge’ - there is always a cozy café just around the corner that can brighten up your day no matter what the weather. 

I know (only too well) that starting a new life in a foreign country can be stressful. If you have any questions at all, please do write and ask at . I’d love to help.
