Organized program, safe and beautiful city, fantastic meeting Danes

DIS was the most organized academic program I've ever experienced (even better than normal university administration). All of the paperwork is taken care of for you so the only thing you have to worry about it having a great time. Because there are so many students that go to DIS (around 1200 per semester) it's like being on a small campus, it's great to meet new American students all the time. However, the best part was meeting the Danes. I would recommend living in a kollegium (a Danish resident hall similar to an apartment style dorm), although some are better than others (with more Danes and social activities). Biking around the city is the best way to get around, it's easy and safe and a huge part of Danish culture. Biking aside, the public transportation is great too with easy buses, metro, and trains. The Sustainability program itself was good, and is broken into three sections, so your experience will most likely depend on the teacher of your section. For the most part the workload is very manageable, and the best part is that much of the learning is hands-on via excursions and fieldtrips in Copenhagen, and elsewhere on the study trips. The experience was so amazing that I'm planning on returning to Copenhagen as soon as possible, and potentially to settle down there in the future.

Life Changing Experience.

I had a great time skiing at Switzerland. My stay abroad was really an exciting, easy but unique experience.

Thrilling Experience Abroad

We attended classes and was offered to travel for 3 weeks. I was a bit scared at the same time thrilled! I got to know people from all over the world.
