I came to this University from Denmark. I had gone to an arts school before I came to America. AAU went out of their way to welcome me and help me as a foreign student. People were bright and worked hard and most faculty members tried to help. And the area resources were great. I was well prepared for work in the field. I have already recommended this university to friends of mine back home.

One has to work very hard but this is like work after university.

My only surprise was compared to Europe how conservative the students were in matters of dress. Given where the university is located and the art focus, where were all the goths and cross dressers and women who showed off their bodies? My first week here one of the professors invited some students to her house. I wore a sweater, dark nylons and boots only. While no one laughed and no one told me to put on a skirt or at least underwear, it was like no one saw someone dress for a party like this before. Come visit me in Copenhagen!

If you want to work hard and be chalenged and get valuable education come here.
