About University Study in Copenhagen
Copenhagen is a modern European capital of 1.7 million with old-world charm reflecting its medieval, fishing-village origins. The bustling city is characterized by its bike- and pedestrian-friendliness, historic buildings, and parks and gardens.
The University of Copenhagen is Denmark’s oldest university and has a student body of over 41,000. With four campus areas scattered across the city of Copenhagen, the university maintains teaching and research activities in health and medical sciences, humanities, law, science, social sciences, and theology.
Housing & Meals
You will work with University of Copenhagen’s housing foundation to arrange accommodation in off-campus Danish residence halls (kollegium) or shared apartments with other university students from all over Denmark and the world. Housing options include twin or single rooms with shared or private bathrooms. Common area kitchens or in-room kitchenettes are available for meal preparation as no meals are included in the program fee.
While there are no sponsored excursions, you have the opportunity to partner with local student-mentors who organize social events for international students. You can also join local students at the Studenterhuset in central Copenhagen, which offers a range of activities and social events for university students from all over town. Membership in sports associations is another good way to join activities for national and international students.
As a student who participates in the University Study in Copenhagen program, you will:
- Develop a stronger sense of confidence by engaging in a highly independent study abroad program
- Learn to appreciate diverse world views, accept complexity, and embrace ambiguity
- Experience a new culturally specific academic system and incorporate different academic perspectives
