Why should I study here?

The IT University of Copenhagen (ITU) was established in 1999 and is Denmark’s leading university focusing on IT research and education. We deliver state-of-the-art teaching and research within computer science, business IT, and digital design. 

What are the admissions criteria?

While each school has its own set of requirements, there are certain minimum requirements for admission. An IB diploma meets their requirements, as does one year of college credit.  US students can meet the requirement with 3 AP scores of 3+. International requirements can be found here. Students from non-anglophone countries must demonstrate English proficiency through IELTS or TOEFL scores and all applicants must submit a copy of their passport. The Danish application is called the Coordinated Enrollment System or "KOT". Students can apply to up to 8 programs or apply for all the schools in the country. You rank the schools in order of preference when you apply. If you qualify for more than one, you get your highest choice pick. You won’t be accepted at more than one. The application deadline is March 15th for non-EU students. You should hear back by June 1st.  *** This is one of the schools that is now requiring Danish language knowledge, even for English-taught programs. Applicants must pass a test indicating A-level proficiency.

What is student life like?

IT University building is approx. 19,000 m2 and is located next to the 800-meter Emil Holms Kanal in the northeastern part of Ørestad between Copenhagen and DR Byen – home of the National Danish Broadcast Service (Danmarks Radio). Student Council is the political organization at the IT University of Copenhagen. It consists of students from every field of study at the university and is run by students. The Student Council works to promote students’ interests and improve their political, professional, and social conditions at the ITU. Furthermore, they run Student Activity Fund, which supports both professional and social activities improving the study environment.

The Myth of American Exceptionalism

Featuring Jennifer Viemont
We're going to be talking about the differences in the educational experience, meaning the academic side of things that students have in Europe versus in the US. So I'm always taken aback when people assume that universities in the US are the best globally.
