Denmark invests large sums in education. Public expenditure on education amounts to 8% of GDP, making Denmark the number one public education spender in the world and creating high standards in education – also in an international perspective.
Some of the characteristics of Danish higher education are: high academic standards, active study environments, interdisciplinary studies and project-based activities.
Denmark has a dynamic and informal study environment. Apart from attending lectures, students work together in groups, where each member is expected to contribute actively to discussions and paper-writing as well as being able to work independently. The students’ own critical and analytical initiative is a very important element of higher education in Denmark. This study form requires a lot of hard and independent work, which is academically rewarding for the individual student.
Whether you come from Asia or South America or someplace in between, Denmark is a foreign country: things are different here. Some things are better and some things are not, but it is those differences that make living abroad an adventure.
