Are you a student ready to go Study Abroad but still undecided about the destination?
Today I’m going to give you 5 reasons why you should choose Denmark as your study destination. Over the years, Denmark has become a well-appreciated destination for students who are looking for career opportunities and exciting study programs.
Before going deeper the explanation of the 5 reasons to study in Denmark, I’ll give you some general information in order for you to have a better idea of this land located in the North of Europe. Denmark, also called the Kingdom of Denmark, is a Nordic country and the southernmost of the Scandinavian ones. The capital, Copenhagen, is the largest city as well as the commercial centre. Government and national parliament are all based in the capital. Denmark, with a population of 5,814,461, is not a huge country, but it has been recognized as one of the most economically and socially developed countries in the world.
All right, it’s time to discover why you should choose Denmark where to study!
1. High-rated Universities
Denmark is hosting high ranked universities. If you are looking for a study program abroad, I strongly suggest taking a look at the universities based in Denmark.

Above all, the educational system is pretty efficient. Moreover, I’d underline many institutions have embraced new ways of learning. For this reason, students are generally more willing to participate actively during lessons, as well as being more focused and interested. More specifically, Danish schools and universities have generally introduced practical sessions, clearly combined with theoretical ones. Thanks to this, you will be able to obtain a degree that also has practical know-how. Because of this, your study will give you an in-depth understanding of the field you’ve decided to focus on.
2. International Environment
Most of the universities in Denmark are internationally oriented. That means you’ll feel extremely comfortable studying and living there. Clearly, you need to be familiar with English!! Besides, universities and institutions are very open to welcome students from abroad. Danish Universities usually plan orientations days and welcoming weeks to make you feel right at home Its good to try and join these events.

Combining the international “mindset” of the Danish educational system with your strong spirit, you’ll be easily able to incredibly experience life abroad in Denmark.
3. Scholarships & fair living costs
I often hear friends and people around me wondering how to get scholarships. Many universities around the world are not that willing to offer scholarships. But for Denmark it’s different! Many universities offer scholarships, grants, and financial aid to help fund your education. Keep in mind you won’t find scholarships available for international students. However, there are other ways to get scholarships related to your goals and needs.
DTU University, for instance, offers a partial scholarship for students ready to start in the next September intake.
For more information, register now to the Online Open Days and find out DTU University based in Denmark. Taking into account living costs, Denmark has specific standards and regulations for European students. For instance, if you are a European student you can have free Denmark tuition fees by covering the following requirements:
Get a Permanent residence permit
Get a Temporary residence permit and upgrade to a permanent one afterwards.
You have a Parent from a non-EU/EEA country who is already working in Denmark
Finally, the living costs you will support are around 700 – 900 EUR monthly in smaller towns. In larger areas, like Copenhagen, living costs could reach up to 1200 EUR a month.
4. Good & happy life standards
Denmark society is constantly promoting events and social interactions. Thanks to this, you will find a friendly and happy social environment where you’ll meet new cultures, people and habits.
And trust me! I’ve experienced several situations and lifestyles abroad… You have to embrace the challenge of studying abroad. Doing that will help you in a million different ways. You will discover yourself, find new friends (from around the world) and places. Moreover, you will improve your knowledge and create a million great memories that you can share with your friends and family at home.
Denmark might be the right place for you where to Study Abroad.
Universities are usually great at planning events taking place away from campus. You can spend countless hours exploring Danish architecture, food culture and nature. Go explore this beautiful country
5. Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
Last but not least, Denmark host one of the most important Technical Universities in Europe, DTU, which is offering innovative and cutting edge study programs: you can find undergraduate, graduate (MSc) as well as postgraduate (PhD). Here are just a few Masters offered by DTU:
Moving out is difficult, especially when you’ve spent a long time living in a certain place you called home. However, even though it’s hard to move out, one must embrace change. To ease your separation anxiety and to get you moving forward, here are 5 tips that you could follow to lessen your struggle in moving out.
1. Early birds panic less
Arranging things can be a complete hassle, especially when it’s crammed in too little time. Things may get left behind, the room is left dirty, things may be broken since it may just be thrown in a box. It’s stressful. That’s why it’s important to start packing at least a month or two before your moving out date. This way, you can sort things that will be coming home with you, things that will be thrown away, and organize things better.
2. Take your things home by batch or category
It will be difficult to take home everything you own in just one travel, especially when you’ve been living in the dorm for quite some time. In the same dilemma of packing early, it will be easier for you to empty the room if you take your things at home little by little, in batches. The last things you should bring home are the ones most essential such as a few clothing, and maybe bed covers. Prioritize important things such as documents and changing your address from old to new.
3. Workload does not need to come along
There are a LOT of papers, books, and notes involved in schoolwork. In going home, it’s important to sort them out. Bringing them all home would be too much of a load, so make sure to choose carefully on which ones are necessary for you, then throw out the rest. If you have books or notes that were properly kept but you don’t need any more, you can sell them to your college friends, or any student who needs it.
4. Clean up/de-clutter
It’s common decency to clean up after our messes, that’s why it’s essential and polite for you to clean your dorm room before moving out. This is a nice gesture to the next tenant, to the owner, and it’s also your time to reminisce and be nostalgic if you’re that type of person. By doing this, you can also do a thorough checking of the place, if there are any damages or things that you may forget to pack.
5. Check for damages and list them
Damages usually mean additional payment since every damage will be charged. It’s important to list every damage you’ve found in your room and be honest about them so there won’t be any additional charges when you finally leave. Pay the fees, if there are any and thank your landlord for letting you stay on their lease.
The OULU university is ranked in the top 400 universities in the world which makes it one of the world’s leading universities.
1. A boost for your CV
Getting your degree at one of the highly ranked universities means that you will be a forerunner. In fact, by studying at Oulu University, you will be provided with an exceptional environment for learning and innovating through their high-quality research.

4. Affordable housing for students
As a student, we all know how difficult it is to make money, but we know how easy it is to spend it. Therefore, affordable housing will enable you to save some money. The Student Housing Foundation of Northern Finland PSOAS offers about 5000 students’ non-expensive rooms. You can choose for a studio-, shared-, or even as big as a family-sized-apartment.
5. Finland’s Environment
Finland is known for its pure nature, peace and space. There is only a little distance from the university to the forest and the waters which allows you to escape to a stress-free and calm environment when needed. There you can relax after a productive day at the university and take your mind off while enjoying the environment. The cool weather and calm atmosphere will help you to get at ease and find peace from, for example, the stressful exam days.
The University has more faculties than an average university. OULU University has a big library, offers health and medical care, multiple restaurants, a fitness centre, IT as well as tutoring support and easy access to transport. It is safe to say that the necessary things are close within reach! There is no need for you to search much further…
Now that I listed the reasons on why to study at the University of OULU, what are you waiting for?! Do you need more convincing or information?
Have you ever wondered why? Today I’m going to give you 7 valid reasons why you should choose Italy where to keep up with your studies.
Let’s start with a short introduction about Italy, in case you are not well informed about this country.
Italy, southern European country with a population of around 60 million, is worldwide considered as one of the most culturally and economically advanced countries. With an ancient story behind, it’s a first-choice destination for tourists and students coming from all around the world.
Ok, let’s zoom now into the reasons why you should choose Italy where to study.
As you probably know already, Italy hosted ancient populations such as Greek and Romans, making the European and world history over the years. That means you can walk through Italian streets, and still admire amazing architectures, fountains, monument and ruins where you feel literally part of a parallel historical period. Moreover, Italy hosted periods like Renaissance, fascism and world word II. For this reason, you’ll have the chance to enhance your cultural know-how by visiting old spots, talking with experts as well as tasting in real life what you have studied or read on books.
One day I decided to ask around worldwide students based now in Italy what was their feeling about studying and living in Italy.
I discovered most of them are not only extremely fascinated by Italian background but also deeply willing to keep studying in Italian Universities.
Check out now our Online Open Days – Discover Italian universities and Business Schools.
∣ Weather & Geography
Because of the strategical position in the south of Europe, Italy has one of the best climates in the world. Generally, the weather is quite mild. However, spacing from the North to the South, you can literally find different climates. For instance, if you’re living in the North, close to the Alps, you’ll find the typical cold weather of the mountains. In the centre, you’ll have a super mild one (except for summer: it’s quite warm!). Reaching the South, you’ll find the sun basically 365 days with hot (but windy) summer and chill autumn/winter. As you have probably got reading above, Italy hosts any kind of surroundings: mountains, lakes, sea, hills, rivers and so on…
In simple words: you’re spoiled for choice!
∣ Pizza, Pasta and… Vino
Ok, when it’s time to deal with food and wine, Italy scores the highest point. If you decide to go to study in Italy, your lifestyle in terms of food will change. In fact, you can find and eat amazing recipes, starting from the authentic Neapolitan pizza to a tasty pasta Carbonara and Sicilian Arancini. All this followed by high quality white and red wines.
Don’t forget the quality of Italian ingredients! Above all, you’ll find good quality ones even in supermarkets and small food stores. That means have a healthy lifestyle, even important while studying (and taking exams!).
Many people recognize Italian as one of the best languages to learn and speak. I tell you in advance: the Italiano is quite hard to learn because of its complexity, but as you are in the mood you’ll sooner or later get it. You just need to meet up Italian people and you’ll surely have the chance to speak and learn step by step.
Italy, as most of the Mediterranean countries, is well known for its sense of hospitality to foreign people who decide to live there. Above all, if you’re a student just arrived in Italy, you’ll find positive vibes and people will be welcoming with you. In a few words: you won’t feel alone or excluded while living your experience in Italy. Moreover, if you choose to study in a universitarian city such as Pavia, Bologna or Pisa, you will live a great experience in terms of hanging out with new people and embrace the Italian culture.
∣ High-Quality Universities
Italy is also well-known for its universities spread in all the peninsula. Spacing from the north to the south, you can find good universities in terms of:
Level of education
Don’t miss the opportunity to study in Italy. MIP Politecnico di Milano offers an International MBA tailored for you in three formats:
If you’re interested in art and fashion, Italy is definitively the right place for you. In fact, Italy hosts amazing museums and galleries where to appreciate the best paintings and works.

Finally, even the fashion environment (Milano for instance) in Italy is quite famous. Concluding, besides studying you’ll have the chance to discover one of the most valued and famous cultures in the world.
