Your Destination

The capital city has a population of approximately two million in the metropolitan area with a cosmopolitan city atmosphere and rich cultural offerings. Copenhagen is known as an environmentally friendly city, where cars share the streets with bicycle commuters; in fact, in 2017, the city recorded more bicycle than automobile traffic. The public transportation system is efficient, clean, and easy accessible consisting of buses, trains, metro lines, and ferries. The Metro brings passengers from the Kastrup International Airport to the city center in twenty minutes. Crime is low in Copenhagen and it remains one of the safest capital cities in Europe.

Copenhagen has taken a leading role in innovative environmental sustainability efforts thanks to public-private partnerships in the Copenhagen Science City. Science City is located north of the city center, close to the campus of the University of Copenhagen and the multi-ethnic, dynamic neighborhood of Nørrebro.


 

Excursions & Activities

Embark on a two-night/three-day study tour included in your program during each block. Students might visit Gdansk or Oslo, or Danish destinations such as Ribe (the oldest Town in Denmark, founded by Vikings), Århus (2017 European Cultural Capital) or Skagen (the country’s northernmost town).

Students can experience Danish hygge during a weekend homestay. Hygge explains the Danish lifestyle that can be described as a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being. Hygge can be a candle-light dinner, but it can be a dinner with family, friends and like-minded people sitting around a table and have a lighthearted conversation.

Experience Copenhagen's transformation from a Viking fishing village founded in the 10th century through a visit to the Nationalmuseet to a world leading capital of sustainability and innovation in today's Science City.

 

Projects, Volunteer Opportunities, or Internships

Volunteering. Give back and create a deeper connection to Copenhagen. Denmark has a rich tradition to engage in volunteer activity, mainly through special interest groups (called "Foregning") and announces city-wide opportunities to volunteer at local festivals and sporting events throughout the year. By volunteering at local high schools or the local Studenterhuset CIEE students meet with local Danish students and peers.
