On-site administration of your program

great program, help you integrate into the Danish culture with ease, amazing facilities, beautiful city.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

* Food:

very, very, very expensive to eat out, so shopping at the local grocery store was how I ate 99% of the time.

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

DIS hosts many social and cultural events throughout the semester that it's hard to pick which ones to attend.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

extremely safe city to live in, very easy for girls to walk home alone in the early morning hours and still feel safe.

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)
