Study Abroad in Copenhagen

Copenhagen, the capital and largest city in Denmark, is home to over 1.3 million people in its metropolitan area, making it the second-largest city in Scandinavia. Known for its modern architecture, historic charm, and eco-friendly urban planning, Copenhagen is an appealing destination for American college students seeking a unique and vibrant study abroad experience.

As a center for design and culture in Denmark, Copenhagen offers numerous museums, galleries, and historic landmarks for young adventurers. The iconic Little Mermaid statue and the colorful Nyhavn harbor area are must-see attractions, while the Danish Design Museum showcases innovative and inspiring works. The historic Tivoli Gardens amusement park, one of the world's oldest, offers thrilling rides and a lively atmosphere, perfect for students looking to unwind and have fun.

Copenhagen's lively neighborhoods, such as the trendy Vesterbro and the bohemian Christiania, offer opportunities to explore diverse street art, charming architecture, and indulge in local cuisine at hip cafes, food markets, and restaurants. The city's nightlife is also thriving, with a wide variety of bars, clubs, and music venues catering to different tastes and interests.

Copenhagen is considered one of the safest cities in the world for students, but it is still important to take common-sense precautions, such as being aware of your surroundings and not walking alone late at night. The cost of living in Copenhagen can be higher than in other major European cities, but students should still budget accordingly and take advantage of student discounts on attractions, transportation, and food. Copenhagen is well-known for its extensive cycling culture and infrastructure, making biking a convenient and eco-friendly way to explore the city.
