Why should I study here?

The school says:Located centrally in the wonderful city of Copenhagen, Metropolitan University College offers a unique international study programme which each year welcomes students from all over the world.The Bachelor’s Degree Programme in Global Nutrition and Health is a 3½ year professional bachelor programme, which combines theoretical learning within nutrition and health with practical hands-on experience acquired through internships. The programme combines studies in health, human, natural and social sciences and as such takes an interdisciplinary and holistic approach to health and nutrition, disease prevention and sustainability.Being a student on our programme you are part of a multicultural environment with students and lecturers from all over the world; you gain competences qualifying you to work in national as well as in international settings. The learning environment is based on the Danish way of teaching; We emphasize team work, problem solving and project-based learning methods. We want to educate you to be independent, critical and able to debate. Our core values are participation, partnership, openness, global outlook, sustainability, ethical responsibility and human rights.

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.  

What is student life like?

Scholarships & Funding

There are a limited number of merit-based scholarships for non-EU students.  These may be awarded as tuition waivers (partial or full) or a monthly stipend for living expenses.

Housing options.

Dining information

Additional notes.

1. Students are generally older at Metropolitan-with an average entering age of 24-25.  2. Since this is the only English-conducted program at Metropolitan, services for international services are lacking.  There is no international relations department and no office that assists with housing. The students I spoke to considered this to be the biggest obstacle they faced.3. Students need to feel comfortable taking the initiative to be successful in this program.  There is no career services office and students also are responsible for finding their own internships. 4. There's good information on housing here.

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.
