Coronavirus: Information for students

Important Information

Dear students,

Latest news - updated 23 March at 16:32

At a press conference today, the Danish Prime Minister announced that all initiatives taken to fight the spread of the corona virus will be extended up to and including 13 April 2020.

Consequently, we will continue our present activities, working and studying at home.

Twelve days have passed since a wide-spread shut-down of public and social activities began. To make sure that the measures are effective, it is of crucial importance to the Danish Government that we all continue to stay in our homes, to keep distance from each other, and to maintain good hygiene as recommended by the Danish Health Authority.

Dania’s study managers and directors  will share further information on local activities and initiatives as soon as possible.

 

Latest news - updated 19 March at 14.21
Danes who return from abroad must stay at home for two weeks. While travelling to their home, those in question should respect all guidelines for behaviour in public areas, including public transport, and they should be especially aware of symptoms of COVID-19 infection.

The current situation with the outbreak of the Coronavirus raises a wide range of questions.

Below we will try to answer the most important questions.

The situation is constantly evolving and the authorities' recommendations and guidelines are constantly changing.

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.

    It is your own decision whether you want to stay abroad or come back to Denmark or your home country.
