The city

The metropolitan area of Copenhagen is home to nearly 1.3 million people. The capital has a lot to offer international students – it’s a youthful city with every fourth citizen being a student. Riding your bike through the old streets of the town, enjoying art, food, and nature, or exploring the historical sights of Copenhagen are just a few of the experiences you’ll find in Copenhagen.

SCIENCE Welcome Programme

The SCIENCE Welcome Programme is a great way for international students to be introduced to the Faculty of Science at the University of Copenhagen. You will be invited to an online course on “How to MSc” where you will learn more about student life, your study programme, and how to register for courses etc. You will also be able to sign up for welcome days for all international students and a welcome day for the GLOFOR programme where you will meet your fellow students as well as your head of studies in Copenhagen.
