UNIVERSITY OF COPENHAGEN

 

The University of Copenhagen offers UT students an excellent opportunity to take a variety of courses alongside local students. Specifically, this university is known for fostering independent learning in a challenging environment. The University is ranked among the top universities in the country and offers a diverse learning environment in a vibrant cosmopolitan city.

Students take regular university courses with students from the host country. Although Denmark's native language is Danish, the University of Copenhagen offers more than 500 courses taught in English at the bachelor's and master's levels.

Participants earn regular UT in-residence credit. All grades earned for the courses taken are computed into the official UT Austin GPA, just as they would be for grades earned in courses taken on campus.
