AU Key Figures presents significant key figures for Aarhus University for the year and is intended to provide a common frame of reference for information on the university’s research and educational activities, talent development, knowledge exchange, staff, finances and buildings. The information is primarily for internal use, but is also included in the performance reporting in the annual report, in reports to ministries and in Universities Denmark’s statistics.

Except for a small number of tables, the key figures are specified for the four faculties Arts, Science and Technology, Health and Aarhus BSS as well as for shared services, which include the central administration, the university’s strategic funds (USM), the university buildings as well as the Sino-Danish Centre for Education and Research (SDC) and the Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies (AIAS). A few of the figures may be imprecise because they have been rounded up or down.

All financial key figures have been converted from Danish kroner to euros at a rate of EUR 1 = DKK 7.4344.
