Study in Denmark

Due to the Bologna reforms, the higher education system is structured three-tiered for the majority of subjects and programmes: bachelor, master and doctoral degrees.

Currently, there are 38 higher education institutions in Denmark, of which almost all are public institutions. In 2018, approximately 260,000 students were enrolled at Danish universities and universities of applied sciences. It becomes apparent that Denmark is quite internationally orientated since more than every tenth student is an international student.
