Useful info:


  • Accommodation
  • Other - health insurance: All students arriving in Denmark are covered by the Danish Health Securities Act, which offers free health care (from doctors and in hospitals). Danish Health Securities Act does not cover evacuation, repatriation, or personal liability, therefore, separate personal travel insurance is highly recommended.

    Students must apply for a CPR number (Danish security number) to have continued access to the free health care system in Denmark. The International Centre organises an event, during your Introduction Week, where you can apply for CPR number as a Nordic citizen, EU/EEA citizen or Non-EU citizen. It is highly recommended that you apply for CPR with the International Centre, during this event.
