Research and education
Academic values form the basis for all activities at Aarhus University. Via curious research, critical analysis and ongoing debate, researchers and students endeavour to find new ways to gain insight, understanding and education for the benefit of society as a whole.
The university consists of four main academic areas. Combined, they cover the entire research spectrum – basic research, applied research, strategic research and research-based advice to the authorities.
In all degree programmes, research and education are closely connected, and the research-based instruction – including teaching that spans the main academic areas – ensures the depth of the degree programmes.
