Danish higher education institutions offer a wide range of opportunities for international students. More than 600 programmes are taught in English - all internationally recognised and of high quality. Whether you are interested in a research-oriented programme or more hands-on vocational training you will have plenty of options in Denmark. You can choose between several programmes taught entirely in English. Options also include degree programmes, exchange programmes, and short-term programmes and summer schools. You can also choose between three types of Danish educational institutions: Universities, University Colleges and Danish Business Academies - and thanks to credit transfer opportunities, you will sometimes be able to move between institutions.

The Danish Agency for Higher Education operates www.studyindenmark.dk, which provides information about opportunities for international higher education in Denmark. The agency is responsible for the assessment and recognition of international qualifications and administers a number of Danish, European and Nordic student exchange programmes which promote international co-operation and mobility in education. The website www.studyindenmark.dk is hosted by the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science. Studyindenmark.dk is  the official Danish government website about higher education in Denmark for international students. The website contains academic and practical information about studying, living and working in Denmark.
