Living in central Copenhagen, in close proximity to all necessities was convenient and helped the students become more immersed in the Danish culture. Program field studies and long study tours were very informative and well planned out.

One of the most rewarding element of the program was the cultural experience. I absolutely loved my housing (rented room), living in an apartment in the city centre with two other Danes, biking everyday. frequent visits to my neighborhood bakery, it felt as if I was just living in Copenhagen and doing everyday normal life. I also really enjoyed meeting other Danish people, immersing myself in the culture, spending time with my roommates, their families, new foreign friends, and new friends from my program. I think the most rewarding element was what I gained from this experience, this opened my eyes to a new global perspective and gave me a lot of courage to do things on my own. Being abroad can be scary but I think this experience was very helpful in making me grow as an individual.

The professors at DIS are mostly Danish, so it was rewarding to be taught by professionals who grew up in another culture. We were encouraged to broaden our thinking while completing assignments, and try to do things that we would normally not be able to do at our university back in the United States.
