What is student life like?

There are many American full-degree and study-abroad students in Denmark. At 3500 per year, Americans are the largest group of students coming to Denmark from outside the EU, averaging 3500 per year. In the capital city of Copenhagen, you will have plenty of opportunities to meet fellow Americans and international students. The locals are friendly, helpful, and easy to communicate with, as the vast majority speak English. Copenhagen and its suburbs are student-friendly and safe, with excellent public transportation that makes it easy for students to get around. The city has a rich cultural life with many concerts, performances, exhibitions, and festivals. Copenhagen often tops international surveys determining the quality of life, personal safety, and even the happiness of its citizens. Most healthcare in Denmark is free of charge, and you pay only 25–50% of the price for medication. A clean environment is important to the Danes, and Copenhagen is one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the world. More than a third of Copenhageners commute to work or school by bicycle – all year round! With non-stop flights from 183 international destinations and more than 4,000 weekly departures and arrivals, Copenhagen Airport puts you within a one-or two-hour flight of all major European cities.
