Education in Denmark
Whether your highest priority is a high academic standard, or living in a modern and safe society: Denmark will have something to offer.
Danish institutions of higher education have a long tradition of excellence and creativity. Close co-operation between engineering students, professors and industry leads to innovative solutions and new designs.
Although Danish is the national language, English is widely used and the vast majority of Danes speaks English fluently. An increasing number of study programmes are offered in English in order to attract students from abroad and to prepare young Danish graduates to work in a global world.
Insurance and medical care
Denmark is known worldwide for its welfare: “The Scandinavian welfare model”. As a student in Denmark you have access to benefits such as free health insurance, free use of public libraries and an extensive system of public transportation.
We strongly recommend all exchange students to register with the municipal registration office in Denmark.
More over it is very important to arrange for private insurance to cover liability and personal belongings during your stay in Denmark. Read more about how to be insured
Your costs of living while studying in Denmark depend very much on your personal lifestyle and habits. You may use the budget below as a guideline for your estimated costs in DDK.

|Clothing and personal care||3.000/6.000|

Denmark’s high level of safety and security is often mentioned by foreign visitors as the most characteristic aspect of Denmark: You can ride your bike safely alongside schoolchildren and high ranking government officials and even the Queen can go shopping with a minimum of security guards.
At the same time Denmark traditionally has an open economy: In the 1950s Denmark had a large agricultural production and export. During the 1960s it developed into an important industrial society. Nowadays it has an increasing post-industrial service economy based on knowledge-intensive production.
‘Hygge’ – cosy socialising
You will probably be introduced to ‘hygge’ – the closest translation of which is ‘cosy socialising’. This may be going for a cup of coffee and a chat or having dinner (for hours) in a friend’s home.
