Life in Denmark

Please see SDU's Corona update site for more details  

During SDU International Summer School you will get a chance to experience Denmark and the Danish way of life. Danes are reportedly among the happiest in the world and perhaps a summer in Denmark will help you understand why. 

The majority of courses is offered on the main campus in Odense, a vibrant student city with many lovely green areas and a lot of cultural events – especially during the summer. You will be able to explore on your own and join the social and cultural activities organised as part of SDU International Summer School.

Courses are also offered at our Sønderborg campus, and the city of Sønderborg is a wonderful place to be in the summer. The SDU campus is right on the waterfront, the small and cosy city centre close by with all it has to offer of shops, cafees, restaurants, Sønderborg Castle,  and you can walk to the beach in less than 10 minutes. 

Centered in the middle of Denmark, the island of Funen is an ideal gateway to the rest of Denmark, if you wish to visit Copenhagen, the beautiful beaches at the west coast of Jutland or other parts of the country.

We look forward to introducing you to our university, cities and country!

The SDU International Summer School offers a full programme of social and cultural activities where you can reload after teaching hours. Look forward to some good hours of great fun with new friends.
