Denmark is a popular higher education destination and it currently hosts almost 23,000 international tertiary level students, including more than 200 from India. It’s historic, student- friendly capital, Copenhagen, is often called ‘The Paris of the North’.
The official language of Denmark is Danish, but most people also understand and speak English. Denmark has much to offer. A high quality of living is a characteristic feature of Danish society, which combines social security, a clean environment and an attractive business climate with high standards in education and research, and an international outlook.
Denmark has launched a new scholarship programme for students from non-EU/EEA countries. Scholarships and tuition fee waivers are available for high performing students enrolling in certain study programmes. Some universities and educational institutions also have their own scholarships. Contact the institution when you apply for admission. In addition, it is possible to apply for an Erasmus Mundus scholarship to do a master’s degree partly at Danish and partly at another European educational institution. Your possibilities as an exchange/guest student depend on your home institution and the chosen exchange agreement. If you are studying in countries outside the EU you should seek information about grants and scholarships at your educational institution in your own country. Students from outside the EU can also find links to several scholarship programmes at the EU-database.
