The relationship between students and teachers in Denmark is quite informal. Both students and teachers like to consider one another equals. You are always encouraged to ask questions both in and outside of the classroom and to express your opinion on the themes discussed during the courses.
The informal atmosphere does not imply, however, that an overly relaxed attitude towards the studies is accepted. On the contrary, the independent nature of university studies in Denmark presupposes that students show initiative and take responsibility in the planning of their studies and in keeping to their own schedules. Students are expected to be able to analyse and discuss material, both in class, in group work and in the final examination. Most studies make use of both oral and written exams.
