Aarhus University was established in 1928. Today, it is Denmark’s second largest university, with about 39,000 students and 6,000 faculty staff. Its main academic areas are arts, science and technology, health sciences and the School of Business and Social Sciences. The main campus is located around a park that is popular as a place for both leisure and studies, and also hosts an annual Boat Race. Aarhus city centre is a few minutes away from the campus, and is one of Europe’s best cities in which to live and study. Two researchers from Aarhus University have won Nobel Prizes – Jens Christian Skou in Chemistry in 1997, and Dale T. Mortensen in Economics in 2010.
