AAU+1 is a network aimed at the spouses and partners of all international staff members at AAU.

The network offers support and guidance to spouses/partners during the challenging transition of moving to a new country and culture, as well as networking activities during your stay in Denmark - whether it be short-term or permanent.

We understand that leaving your family, friends, career and familiar environment behind can be overwhelming. The AAU+1 Spouse Network aims to help you find your feet, make new friends and help you off to a good start in this new chapter of your life.

We encourage you – all AAU spouses and partners – to:

  1. Contact our International Staff Partner Chanette Hemdrup Jakobsen if you have any questions or would like to book a personal meeting.
  2. Sign up for future communication about AAU+1 by filling in the form Registration: AAU +1 spouse and partner network.
  3. Ask to join the Facebook group AAU +1: Spouse and partner network.


You can learn more about our partner networks who specialize in servicing spouses and partners below; the networks are divided by campus. Their services are available to AAU spouses and partners in the form of networking sessions, seminars, events, and knowledge sharing.
