Studies in Denmark

In order to study in Denmark, students need to know the education system quite well and understand the difference between the two types of institutions:

  • professional academies and colleges focused on practice and specialization in a particular field, such as business, hotel management, architectural technology, etc .;
  • universities that focus on the theoretical side, such as sciences, humanities or social sciences.

They have a common credit system, which allows students to transfer from one institution to another at different stages of their studies.

Academies and colleges offer two-year programs in a field of choice, focusing on the practical side and the close connection between student and teacher. At the end of the two years of specialization, you can follow a Top-Up program for obtaining the license, which lasts 1.5 -2 years.
