AAU is unique in many ways but one leading thing is the study method called “The Aalborg Model for Problem Based Learning (PBL)”. The method is highly respected both nationally and internationally, and the students obtain important academic and social dimension in both group projects and research (http://www.en.aau.dk/education/problem-based-learning/). AAU offers education and research within the fields of natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, technical and health sciences.

AAU main campus is in Aalborg, which in 2016 was elected as the happiest city in Europa by Business Insider.
