You can enter Denmark if you are enrolled at an educational institution that is open on the condition that you must attend classes or have an exam requiring physical presence.

You can also enter Denmark if you are going to take an admission test or the like that cannot be taken online and is a prerequisite for being admitted to a Danish educational programme. 

Moreover, you can enter Denmark if you have been admitted to an educational institution in Denmark. You must enter Denmark as late as possible before the start of your study programme. If you have already found a place to stay, you can enter Denmark as from the date when your lease commences or when you can move into your accommodation. If you have been issued with a student residence permit, you can present your residence permit as proof that you are entitled to live and stay in Denmark.

Dear students,

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs continues to discourage all unnecessary travel.

If you travel abroad anyway, you are strongly encouraged by the health authorities to stay home for 14 days after returning home.  

The request to stay home for 14 days applies to the cities and countries that are subject to travel restrictions at the time of your trip.

See the Ministry of Foreign Affairs travel guide at https://um.dk/en/travel-and-residence/coronavirus-covid-19/

Help reduce the risk of infection - come home from vacation abroad 14 days before study start.

Take care of yourselves and others, and have a good summer holiday.

 

Latest news: 2 July

Dear Students,

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:

  • Within each class there will no longer be any social distancing requirement
  • You must still keep a social distance of one metre to students from other classes
  • We will maintain requirements for hygiene and the way we must all act on campus – we will send you up-to-date guidelines when it is time to return to campus
  • Parts of your classes will be taught online to avoid too many people on campus at once

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.

Latest news: 12 May

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:

  • Workshop and clinic classes
  • Exams requiring workshops and clinics
  • Continuing and further education and training in small groups
  • A few activities crucial to institutions and students

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.

You can find official details on the gradual reopening here: https://politi.dk/en/coronavirus-in-denmark.

 

Latest news: 7 April

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.

 

Please read more below

  • Dania students who are in Denmark

    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.

  • Students in internships

    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.

  • Internships, study stays and study trips abroad

    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 stay abroad doing your internship or study abroad semester?

    • Immediately contact Dania’s International Department and your study coordinator
    • Register on “List of Danes” if you understand Danish. This list is the fastest way for the Foreign Ministry to send you important information and updates about the country in which you are located. Your home country may offer similar services.
      • Follow the advice of your host institution/internship company and the local authorities of your host country
      • Stay in close and continuous contact with your relatives and your network to make sure that both you and they feel safe.
