About the Southern Denmark University
With 15,000 students, the Southern Denmark University (SDU) is the third largest university in Denmark. Most of these students are distributed on its three campuses in Odense, Sonderborg, and Esbjerg.
  • Odense (pop. 175,000) is more than a thousand years old. It has numerous museums, cafes, cinemas, concert halls, galleries, music clubs, and nearby beaches.
  • Sonderborg is a college town on the island of Als. About a quarter of the 30,000 inhabitants are students, thus ensuring a lively social scene. Because of its sometime turbulent history with Germany, there are many historic monuments in the area, including an 800 year old castle!
  • Esbjerg (pop. 83,000) is a harbor town in the heart of one of Denmark’s main tourist areas. It is close to medieval towns, amusement parks, beaches, and nature reserves, and is host to a wide range of museums and performing arts.

About Denmark
Denmark is a Scandinavian peninsula jutting into the North Sea. It borders Germany to the south. Denmark has 406 islands, and approximately 5.2 million people live there. No matter where you are in Denmark, you are never more than 30 miles away from the ocean. Sixty-five percent of the country is farmland and eleven percent is forested. The Danes have a strong appreciation for nature and have enacted a series of laws to protect it. Although Danish is the native language, English is widely spoken in Denmark.

Denmark is one of the oldest kingdoms in Europe. The government is composed of a monarch who is chief of the state and a prime minister who is the head of the government.  Denmark has socialized medicine, and with the exception of prescription drugs, health care is largely free.

About the Danish Education System
Denmark spends more money per capita on education than any other country in the world and has a 99 percent literacy rate. Recently Danish students have shifted away from choosing practical courses to courses that are more academic in nature. A university degree in Denmark normally takes 5 years to complete. The normal academic calendar runs from late August to December and late January to mid-June. The Danish grading scale is on a point system with 5 and below considered  unsatisfactory, 6 acceptable, 7-9 average, and 10-13 excellent.
