Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

The teachers and the core programs were great.

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Everyone was extremely accessible and were supportive when necessary.

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

The dorm was okay. If it wasn't for the group of DIS students I was with, I would have moved out right away. I did not like having a roommate, especially because she never left the room and did not make any friends. Our internet situation was not great, but that problem was dealt with. The dorm was not pretty or clean (the bathroom was gross), but it was live-able.

* Food:

All the food provided by DIS was great

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Everything - the study tours were amazing.

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

Denmark is so 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)

Not including program expenses, about how much money did you spend on food and other expenses each week? $150ish
Do you have any general money-saving tips for future study abroad participants? Cook for yourself because food is so expensive
