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. Please note that if you attend the 2nd semester only, the exams may also include curriculum covered in the 1st semester. However, this will be taken into consideration when assessing the papers.

  • 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 will also result in extra written assignments. 

  • Equal treatment

    As an Exchange student you will be treated the same way as our full-time international students. You must not expect special treatment. In other words, you will be fully integrated in your class. You will be in one of our international classes with many different nationalities, and everything will take place in English. If you enrol into a 1st-semester class, you will be given the same introduction as all other new students in your class. If you enrol into a later semester, an exchange buddy among your classmates will be appointed to help you get settled.

  • 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 Randers or 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 Randers or Viborg after which you will be covered by the Danish public health insurance. Please note that the embassy demands a fee of EUR 248 for processing your visa application.

    Read more about residence permits and visa here.

  • Health Insurance and other Insurances

    Students from EU countries are covered by the Danish National Health Service after a period of 6 weeks counting from the day you have registered with the municipality. 

    If you obtain a European Health Insurance Card in your home country, you will have 3 months of medical coverage.

    Non-EU students are covered by the Danish National Health Service after a period of 6 weeks counting from the day they have registered with the municipality. For the first 6 weeks 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 first 6 weeks of their stay.

  • 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

    It is recommended 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 academy you will be in an international environment, and 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. City of Randers: Language Center Randers. City of Viborg: Language Center Viborg. If you attend courses in other cities than Randers or Viborg, please contact the academy for assistance. 

  • Arrival/Getting here

    If you have only bought a ticket for Copenhagen or Århus, it is important that you bring either cash (Danish Kroner – DKK) or a credit card to purchase your train or bus trip to Randers or Viborg. 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 direct train service to Randers. If you are going to Viborg, expect to change trains once or twice. You can buy tickets at the airport. If you arrive at Aarhus Airport, there is a bus service to Randers (bus No 212). If you arrive at Karup Airport, there a bus service to Viborg.

    In general the following site is very good for planning trips in Denmark: http://www.rejseplanen.dk/ (English language is offered). When you arrive, a fellow student 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 are suffering from a disability, please contact Flemming Andersen (fka@eadania.dk) for information about our facilities. 

Accommodation

The city of Randers only has one dormitory, Randers Kollegiegaard, situated 8 km north of the academy. Remember to bring bed linen and kitchen ware.

It is very important that you read the terms and conditions of Randers Kollegiegaard, paying special attention to the rules regarding termination of your tenancy. You find the rules here - at the end of the document.

In Randers, you must apply for a room on the dormitory’s website – remember to state that you are an Erasmus student. If you are experiencing problems with obtaining a room, please contact Flemming Andersen (fka@eadania.dk).  Please note that the dormitory is an independent institution run by the city – not by the academy. Read more about accommodation in Randers.

Campus Viborg: Due to the increasing number of international students new dormitories have been built. The largest dormitories are on the campus next to the Campus Viborg building, so most students have only 2-3 minutes to the academy or to the International Students Centre. Read more about accommodation in Viborg. For further information on accommodation at our Viborg Campus, please contact Mr. Claus Grand Bang at clol@eadania.dk.

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.
