Studying in Denmark

Studying in Denmark can be quiet gratifying. The quality of education is outstanding, and there are a large number of programs to choose from. Whether one opts to go for a research based program or vocational training, there is a wide variety of courses taught totally in English.

There are currently approximately 18,000 foreigners studying in Denmark. The system of education emphasizes participation of students and is based on problem solving. Teaching is carried out as teamwork, and the teacher plays the role of a consultant.

Citizens of EU/EEA and Switzerland study free of cost. There are also no tuition fees for some student exchange programs. All other students have to pay. Annual costs run into approximately USD 8,000 to 21,000/- depending on the institution.

Danish institutes demand a very high standard of English. To be accepted to undergraduate and postgraduate programs taught in English, candidates have to prove proficiency in the language. This is done by taking tests like IELTS, TOEFL or the Cambridge ESOL examinations. It is also possible to get official pre-assessment of one’s qualifications, which outlines what the qualification is equivalent to in Denmark. Universities in Denmark set their own admissions criteria but this document is a good estimate, and having it improves one’s application.

In general universities will ask for educational documents that have been certified by a government official of a specified rank. They may even ask for some documents to be sent to them directly from the institute issuing them.
