Student Life

The Centre of African Studies offers a dynamic international study environment while also creating a strong sense of community through close and committed interaction among staff and students.

The Centre of African Studies offers good facilities for social events. Students have plenty of opportunity to arrange their own social events. Only your imagination sets the limits. Students have previously organised overnight trips, guided tours of exhibitions, theatre visits, African dinners, café evenings in the basement café, student trips to Africa, and much more. Future social activities could for example include cinema trips and film evenings, or publishing of a student magazine. Students are always welcome to contact the Student Council or the Student Counsellors with ideas for social activities.

As a student on CAS you also have acsess to a range of student facilities such as study places, computers and wireless network, library, canteen and student café.
