Fall 2015 Participant
DIS integrated independent travel time as well as guided study tours, giving me a broad range of travel experiences that balanced the academic course load.

Patrick M Sawyer, Academic Year 2018 Participant
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.
