Academic information

Students in Denmark are expected to be engaged in their learning process. The independent nature of the university studies in Denmark presupposes that students show initiative and take responsibility in the planning of their studies and in keeping to their schedules.

The academic culture is built around a quite informal student-teacher relationship, where you are encouraged to ask questions, express your opinion, and take part in the academic discussion.
