Individual Course Reviews

Course Name/Rating:

Public Health in Northern Europe

Course Department:
Instruction Language: English
Comments: All 3 lecturers were very knowledgeable and well-prepared in the topic of healthcare. The course was organized mainly on discussions with guest lecturers from various areas within healthcare. Afterall, I have learned so much about the healthcare system not just in Denmark, but also other Nordic countries.

Sustainable Technology and Culture

Course Department:
Instruction Language: English
Comments: Intense course for only 3 weeks. All students were required to attend many field studies throughout the course, but afterall we learned so much about how Nordic countries are using cleantech to help the world to decrease CO2 emission. The best part of the course was the study tour to Norway for one week. We visited many Norwegian cleantech companies as well as local museums and attractions.
