Om Survival Guide

Every year more than 10.000 international students migrate to the home of Hans Christian Andersen and  Tivoli, beer, pastries not to forget the all-pervating concept of hygge. On the surface it is, thus, not hard to see Denmark as a a tiny cute country, mostly known for it´s fairy tales and tourist attractions...Unless you arrive in January. Then you will probably notice the gray, rainy and cold weather and crazy Danes who will bike to class regardless of snowstorms and fog. 

As you can here Denmark is a lot of things and it is the purpose of this international Students´Survival Guide to help your decision and planning process before you travel to Denmark as well as your go to guide when it all becomes a bit too Danish while you are here.

We cannot promise you a comprehensive answer to all your potential questions but we do hope the Survival Guide will give you a better impression of what it entails to study in Denmark as well as the making your stay as smooth as possible. 

The Survival Guide is a student to student based initiative developed by the Cooperative of Danish Student Unions ( Danske Studerende Andelsselskab) in cooperation with National Union of Students in Denmark.
