Summer is here and we can all look forward to a well-deserved summer holiday.
The Corona pandemic has made this spring quite an unusual semester, and it has affected our everyday lives with its demands for social distancing, hygiene and online classes. When we meet again after the holidays, we will still have to follow guidelines, but at least we will be able to meet physically on campus.
We expect the following guidelines to apply:
We would like your input on how to best include digital elements in your classes, so let us know what works especially well for you.
Concerning internships, we know that several students have not yet found one for the fall semester. Be assured that we will continue to help you after the holidays. Right now, it takes longer than normal to get in contact with companies. Also remember that you can choose project or entrepreneurship internships as an alternative to a normal internship with a company. Our internship coordinators are ready to assist you if you choose any of these options.
You will receive further information from your local campus and study program.
Take care of yourselves and others, and have a good summer holiday.

We now know the plan for the next two steps for reopening Denmark.
As expected, the government will only allow very limited reopening of higher-education institutions:
The board of directors must approve all activities, which must follow specific guidelines. Note also that the minimum social distancing has now been reduced to 1 meter.
Unless the management of your local campus tells you otherwise, you must expect all classes and exams to be conducted online until our summer vacation.

The Ministry has decided to gradually reopen our institutions. In general, a number of initiatives initiated as part of the effort to spread COVID-19 are being extended.
Dania Academy will be physically closed until 10 May 2020.
The Minister mentions that it has been a difficult priority, with the scale of reopening constantly having to be weighed in relation to the health-related considerations to continue to limit the spread of COVID19.
We will continue to work closely with the ministry to find solutions regarding the situation. Dania Academy is closely following the trend and is trying to keep this page updated in accordance with government announcements.

The government has decided that educational institutions should close physical education for 2 weeks, starting Friday, March 13th.
You are still expected to be active , and you will receive inquiries from your teachers and local study coordinators on how you are expected to work during these weeks.
What happens after the 14 days is still unknown, but we follow the situation closely and we update our website as soon as we know something new.
If possible, you should continue your internship. Note the latest news above if you are studying abroad. If your internship is cancelled, the local study management and counsellors will assess whether we can approve your internship despite the reduced period. If this is not the case, we will assess which objectives you need to obtain. You will then be given the opportunity to carry out your internship at a later time in your education. If this is not possible, you may be asked to make other assignments to substitute the missing part of your internship.
Students doing an internship or a study stay abroad have received a separate message from the International Department. Please note the latest news above on this matter. The above precautions also apply to stays abroad. Furthermore, we are following the travel guidelines of the Danish Foreign Ministry, which also apply to study trips. The local study management at each campus will inform you further of this, but most study trips planned for the spring have been cancelled.

What you need to do if you choose to return to Denmark?
It is your own decision whether you want to stay abroad or come back to Denmark or your home country.
