AU Studypedia is a study tool that guides you around the academic side of student life. AU Studypedia is a contraction of the words "Study" and "Encyclopedia" and is therefore an encyclopedia or reference work about studying. The content of the website has been developed in collaboration with researchers, learning consultants and librarians.
At Aarhus University there are approximately 40,000 students and about as many different ways of being a student. Our mission is not to tell you how to study, and we do not offer any miracle cures. On the other hand, we would like to show you examples of some of the many different ways you can approach the academic side of your student life. We therefore hope that you will use AU Studypedia as inspiration for your own study practice and find out along the way what works particularly well for you.
The content is aimed at students at Aarhus University, but everyone is welcome to use AU Studypedia. As a student, however, it is important to remember that the content of the page should be perceived as suggestions and not injunctions, as there may be special rules on your education and the individual subjects. Orient yourself in your curriculum or talk to your teacher or supervisors about the rules and requirements for your education.
