How much does it cost?*
The Aarhus University January School is open to students as exchange only.  A maximum of 15 places are available).  Exchange students pay their usual tuition fees to the University of Melbourne.  They will only pay housing and other program costs to Aarhus University up-front.

How much credit can be earned?
Each subject in the January School is worth a total of 10 ECTS which means that students can earn 12.5 University of Melbourne points from their successful completion of one subject.  Students may only take one of the three subjects on offer.  You must, however, get your overseas study plan approved for credit to your degree here before leaving Melbourne, and students are encouraged to have multiple subjects approved to provide themselves with maximum flexibility.
