In Martina's own words:

Hi! I´m Martina and I'm from Vienna, Austria.

I am currently enrolled in the Master for Economics at Aarhus BSS.

I choose this program for its adaptability. All courses are electives, even though some criteria must be fulfilled to complete the Master, it is possible to customize your studies to your own interests. Yes, the magnitude of different electives can be overwhelming at the beginning but in the end, it allows you to focus on topics you are actually passionate about.


Overall, Aarhus is a great city for young people. It's small but lively, there are a lot of students, many of which are other internationals. The city already feels like home to me, I love that everybody bikes everywhere, the landscape is beautiful and meeting new people at the university is relatively easy.


Would I recommend students to study at Aarhus BSS?

Yes, 100%! The university can be challenging, the level in most courses is relatively high and lecturers expect a lot from their students. In my experience, however, there is always time to have some fun with new friends or to exploring the city as well as other parts of Denmark.

If you have any questions regarding my Master's program, living in Aarhus, the application process (I also struggled with it), how moving from Austria to Denmark felt like or how I organized it, you are more than welcome to ask! :) I will be happy to help you!
