A place to live

In major cities in Denmark it is not easy to find accommodation. The rent or dormitory costs between 2000-3500 DKK (1 € = 7.44 DKK), depending on the size/location.

In all cases, we recommend a dormitory for a start. Start your search when you apply for the school, the key of success is in EARLY start of search.

Official papers

Health insurance:

Prior to departure, you should get the “blue” international health insurance card from your local health authorities. With THIS you have health insurance in Denmark, before having received your residence permit. (It also serves as a health insurance card.)
In case, you have a permanent residence in a non-EU country (e.g. Serbia) ask the details from our agents.

Residence permit:

You ask for it after arrival, most schools will help in this. It normally takes about 4-6 weeks to get it.

With this card you get free health insurance, work permit and residence permit in Denmark.

A so-called “nem-ID” (easy-ID) code will give you a single login code for all Danish agencies for official business on-line system (tax, health care, banking, library, municipal affairs, employment etc).

Student jobs

The schools recommend you to work max. 15 hours a week, in order not to compromise your studies. The minimum wage: 100 DKK / hour (12-13€). Foreign students, who do not yet speak Danish, can manage jobs like: Taking out newspapers or commercial papers, cleaning, dishwashing, serving, babysitting, gardening and many more.

We can give a lot of advice on the way, but you have to find your own job.

The experience has shown that most students can find a job in about 6-9 months. We can help, how to, where and how you should look.

Learning Danish

The Denmark international education programs are all taught in English.

Although about 83% of Danes speak English is a great advantage if the student start learning/speaking the Danish language.

Work is easier to find with some Danish language skills, even if only beginners skills.

Before the departure, you should try to find local possibilities to learn beginners Danish.

After the receipt of a residence permit in Denmark you can learn Danish in the local language school for two years for FREE. We recommend you not to miss this opportunity!
