The Faculty of Health Sciences offers courses in public health at master level taught in English at Esbjerg campus.
The study of medicine is entirely taught in Danish. It is therefore a prerequisite that medicine students have a good command of Danish to follow courses. You can find information on courses (in Danish) at:
As a student of medicine, you can apply for 3-4 months of internships. You rotate between 3-4 sections, spending up to 4 weeks in each. It is not possible to do 3-4 months in only one section. The number of internships is limited. Students get placed on a first come, first serve principle. Exchange students from partner universities have priority over other guest/study abroad students applying to do an internship. A command of Danish is not required. Overview of sections you can apply for.
Please note that medical students in Denmark complete compulsory hospital service after their master exam. The details of this service are arranged by the National Board of Health and not by the universities. Thus, we are not able to help in this matter.
If you wish to do laboratory work, it’s important that you describe what you wish to work on for the relevant professor to assess it and accept you.
If you wish to apply for an internship at a hospital you must upload a statement specifying your learning objectives; i.e. are you required to have practical or observational experience, etc.
