Mission

It is the objective and mission of Study Service to contribute to solving Aalborg University’s tasks as an education institution:

  • By developing suitable and efficient administrative solutions and service offers to the university’s study programmes and students, and
  • By providing relevant support to the university’s management.

Vision

Study Service will:

  • Contribute to improving the knowledge of all the university’s education offers in Denmark and abroad and to ensuring admission of the best qualified students. This applies to admission to full-time as well as part-time programmes in Danish and English. Study Service aims to provide attentive, thorough and objective information with a view to reducing the dropping-out rate.
  • Contribute to developing completion guidance, guidance on change of studies, guidance on study visits and internships in Denmark and abroad as well as guidance on placement. The placement guidance includes activities which can contribute to strengthening the students’ employment opportunities.
  • Develop procedures for student grants, scholarships, support in connection with visits abroad as well as Special Support for students with disabilities with a view to ensuring correct and quick administration.
  • Develop the university’s study administrative system (STADS) and other IT support systems. The IT systems are developed with a web interface, and the aim is to provide as many self-service offers to the students as possible.
  • Develop procedures for information and support to the management at all levels concerning application, admission, completion, employment and other relevant activities.
