What can I Study in Denmark
What can I study in Denmark as an international student is a question that always comes to mind when you prepare to go Denmark for higher study. Here you will find available degrees in Denmark for international students.
Academy Profession Degree:
For students who want a career in business and industry, these two-year programmes (taught at Danish business academies) involve lectures, group projects and work placements.
Professional Bachelors Degree:
Primarily taught at university colleges, these take three to four-and-a-half years to complete. Consisting of lectures, seminars, work placements and a final project, they prepare you to enter a specific profession such as teaching or journalism.
University Bachelors Degree:
Three-year academic programmes in one or two subjects, these are equivalent to a UK undergraduate Bachelors degree. After graduation you can move into employment or go on to postgraduate study.
Candidatus or master’s programmes take 2 years (120 ECTS) following a bachelor’s degree. These programmes are set up as a more extensive specialization of the subjects taken during the bachelor’s programme. Research forms an important component, and a master’s thesis (speciale in Danish) is compulsory for all specializations. At the end of the programme, graduates are awarded the title of candidatus followed by the relevant specialization.
PhD / Doctorate Degree:
Most PhD programmes last for 3 years following a candidatus degree. The programme involves 6 months of classes in research skills, as well as the writing and public defence of a doctoral thesis. The traditional Danish doktorgrad (dr.phil, dr.scient.) is still awarded to those who have conducted a total of 5 to 8 years of original research and written and defended a doctoral thesis. No classes are required for this title.
