Study Abroad in Denmark

Summer, Semester and Year Long Programs Available

A few fun facts about Denmark:
·         It was recently named by the UN as the world’ happiest country.
·         80% of residents are completely bilingual (Danish and English).
·         It’s a foodie paradise.
·         Public transportation is organized, clean, and safe.
·         You (yes, you – reading this article) can study abroad there!

CWRU has been sending students to the prestigious Danish Institute for Study Abroad on semester programs since the 1970s, and DIS students have consistently fallen in love with DIS’s academic programs and the city of Copenhagen.  DIS has a variety of core courses in the health sciences, political science, business, cognitive science, and more – and each core course includes a week-long field study in Europe as well as several day-long field trips.  For example, students in the Medical Practice and Policy program visit hospitals in Copenhagen, and they also travel to the modern Swedish capital Stockholm and the former Soviet stronghold of Tallinn, Estonia, to see firsthand how the medical policies have been shaped in these unique settings.

In addition, DIS offers summer courses.  In fact, the Francis Payne Bolton School of Nursing is sending several students to DIS this summer to complete coursework as well as their nursing clinical rotations. More information about the DIS summer program can be found here.

Another group of students will be traveling this summer to the Denmark Technical University campus in nearby Lyngby.  These students will be completing a chemical engineering lab (ECHE 362) with Dr. Syed Qutubuddin.  If they fall in love with DTU, they (or you!) could consider studying there for a semester as an exchange student.  Engineering students with a 3.0 or higher are eligible to study for a semester or year at DTU through the Global Engineering Education Exchange.  DTU is consistently ranked the #1 engineering university in Scandinavia, so a semester at DTU will allow you to study alongside some of the best minds in the world.

For more information about studying in Denmark (or anywhere else, for that matter), please don’t hesitate to contact the Office of Education Abroad.  You can make an appointment with a study abroad advisor by calling 216-368-2394 or emailing

Spring Semester 2014 in London with RADA
For over 100 years RADA has specialized in professional training for the dramatic arts. RADA students spend very little time sitting around in lectures: the skills of the actor, the stage manager, the scenic artist need to be practiced to achieve expertise. The staff combines excellence as teachers, with continued engagement in the profession: winning awards, directing movies, publishing books and working with major producers, both in the UK and abroad.  CWRU has partnered with RADA to offer a full spring semester course of study, in London.  This is a CWRU "IN" program, which means students will register through CWRU for this semester abroad.
