Education in Denmark is a key priority, backed up with the belief that high quality education at all levels is essential to ensure competitiveness in today’s globalised world. With their high academic standards combined with innovative learning approaches, the Danish institutions are preparing their students to play an active role in a globalised, knowledgebased society.
Danish higher education has a long tradition of combining academic excellence with innovative research and teaching. High academic standards, interdisciplinary studies and project-based activities ensure active and motivating learning environments.
Most Danish Higher Education institutions benefit from their co-operation with business, industry and research institutes, creating an enriching and vibrant learning environment for their students. Danish higher education institutions offer a range of opportunities for international students.
Furthermore, the Higher Education institutions are internationally focused and offer a large number of programmes taught in English. A recent survey with responses from more than 3,500 international students studying in Denmark, showed that 78% of the students would recommend Denmark as a study destination and 93% consider Denmark to be a safe country to live in.
