Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

All of the classes are taught in English, however the professor and I were the only 2 native English speakers! Interesting to travel so far, and to be the comfortable one in class. The Danes have a strict grading system! However the classrooms and facilities were the nicest I've seen. Very valuable.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

I never once felt lost. They had a designated office for international students, and everyone was so friendly and helpful. Never had a problem!

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

My housing was a bit dirty, but it forced me to get out of my room! Loved the fact that I lived with kids all over the world. Where I lived, is how I made friends. I still keep in touch with a couple of them!

* Food:

I'm not very picky, and I had a hard time enjoying the food. But, who needs food when there is so much beer available???

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

The people I made contacts with made my whole experience. Open up and meet everyone! You will run into some fascinating people.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

I could run at midnight outside and I never once felt threatened. Very, very safe area.

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)


If applicable, to what degree did your living situation aid your language acquisition?
