Practical Information

All you need to know about your study-abroad stay at Dania

  • Subjects and exams

    As an exchange student you must attend all subjects of the semester(s) you are enrolled into.

    This is due to our multidisciplinary and group-work oriented approach to teaching.  

    You must take all exams, tests and projects of the semester(s) you are enrolled into on the same terms as full-time students. 

  • Absence from class

    All absence from classes is registered (this is also the case for our full-time students). We expect students to attend all classes, and if we notice that your absence is becoming critical, we reserve the right to contact your home institution. Absence from class will reduce your chance of passing exams. Too much absence may also result in extra written assignments. 

  • Equal treatment

    As an Exchange student you will be treated the same way as our full-time students. We will of course o our best to get you integrated as quickly as possible, and for that reason an exchange buddy among your classmates will be appointed to help you get settled. Also, we will support you in any way we can.

  • EU-residence permit, visa and health insurance

    If you are an EU/EEA citizen, you must apply for an EU-residence permit in the city of Aarhus. The Academy will assist you in this upon your arrival here. When you have received your permit you must register with the city authorities in Viborg after which you will be covered by the Danish public health insurance. 

    If you are a Non-EU student, the Academy will electronically send you a visa application form and a letter of confirmation, together with instructions regarding applying online for a visa. Upon arrival you must register with the authorities in Viborg after which you will be covered by the Danish public health insurance. Please note that total fees for obtaining a visa is between 500 and 600 EUR.

  • Health Insurance and other Insurances

    Students from EU countries are covered by the Danish National Health Service when they have registered with the municipality and received a CPR number. 

    If you bring a European Health Insurance Card in your home country, you will have 3 months of medical coverage without registering with the municipality.

    Non-EU students are covered by the Danish National Health Service when they have registered with the municipality and received a CPR number. For the period until then, they are only covered for accident, childbirth, acute illness or sudden aggravation of a chronic disease. Therefore we recommend that they have private medical insurance covering the period of their stay.

    In general, it is the student's own responsibility to have the correct insurances. We recommend a general travel insurance since we, as a university, do not cover you for any insurances.

  • Insurance for Repatriation

    Please note that the Danish National Health coverage does not cover the costs of medical repatriation, which would be necessary if you were involved in an accident and wanted to spend a period of prolonged recovery at home.

  • Liability, Accident and Theft

    We recommend that international students take out liability insurance as well as insurance against accidents and theft. it is especially recommended that you check the coverage in case of accidents during practical exercises and other activities related to your studies.

  • Learning Danish

    At our international campus in Viborg you will be able to get easily by with English, both at the academy and outside. The general level of English in Denmark is very high and you will only rarely meet Danes who cannot communicate in English. However, to better understand our culture and also as an efficient ice breaker, we recommend that you take language classes during your stay. The academy does not offer such courses, but the local language centre, run by the city, offers Danish courses.

  • Arrival/Getting here

    Please note that train tickets can usually be bought on board the train, but it is normally much more expensive than buying them at the station. At Copenhagen Airport there is a train service to Viborg, but you must expect to change trains once or twice. You can buy tickets at the airport. 

    In general the following site is very good for planning trips in Denmark: (English language is offered). When you arrive, your Erasmus buddy will meet you and take you to the dormitory, if possible. Please inform the Head of International Mobility of you time and place of arrival.

  • Summer break

    Please note that it may be difficult to get in contact with the Erasmus Officer at the academy during the month of July. The email response time may be up to two weeks. 

  • Students with disabilities

    If you have special needs or belong to a category of fewer opportunities, please contact Flemming Andersen ( for information about our facilities and student assistance opportunities. We will do our best to accommodate your special needs.


Campus Viborg: There are dormitories next to Campus Viborg, so most students have only 2-3 minutes to the academy or to the International Student Centre. The dormitory is run by an independent, private housing company. As an exchange student, you are guaranteed a room. You can choose between a single room or a shared room (with separate bedrooms). You do not need to apply for a room. We will give the dormitory a list of incoming students, and the dormitory will contact you in due time. For more information on the rooms, please contact institutional Erasmus Coordinator Flemming andersen at

As all other higher-education institutions in Denmark, Dania uses ECTS points to describe the workload necessary for an average student to obtain the learning objectives given for any subject, course or education.

A full year’s workload corresponds to 60 ECTS points, which in Denmark equals 1650 hours, and the ECTS points are allocated by estimating the time a student is expected to spend, i.e. all the time included in class-room teaching, project work, assignments, internships, self study, exams and more.

See an explanation of the Danish 7-point grading scale here.
