If you are an international full-degree Master’s student at Aarhus BSS – studying in either Herning or Aarhus – you have the opportunity to enhance your chances of pursuing an exciting career during and after your studies in Denmark.
We will match you with a local company. Through a three-day internship with two other students, you will get insights into the company, its culture, and the competences of its employees. You will also meet company representatives and learn about the Danish business community and job market.
Future Talent Denmark is a one-semester extracurricular programme as a collaboration between Aarhus BSS, the University of Southern Denmark and the organisation Work Live Stay.
NB! We are no longer accepting applications.
”The Danish university system is booming with talented international students who are potential great assets for the Danish labour market. I am sure that this programme can help them to get a good start on their working life and a future career in Danish companies."

“The FTD program has helped me understand how I fit in the working environment and what is the value that I could highlight in my CV. I had a chance to open my network and reflect on my communication skills. I think it’s really important as an international that we could be in an environment to make mistake, and then learn to adapt ourself to the Danish working culture. “
“Discussions on campus are always based on the big players in Denmark. However, SMEs are the backbone of the Danish economy and with the Future Talent Denmark program you have the extraordinary possibility to get insights into their structure and most importantly their network. Even though you might have other goals, this is a unique possibility to stand out.”
"The three-day internship has been an exciting journey as I had the chance to meet professional researchers and completed a challenging task together with other students who surprisingly have different backgrounds to me. More than that, we had wonderful moments sharing stories about daily work culture, interesting projects and received advice for our next journey."
