Denmark is located in northern Europe and is part of Scandinavia. Denmark consists of the Jutland peninsula, the larger islands of Zealand, Funen, and Lolland-Falster and 429 other named islands between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea, 72 of which are inhabited.
Even though Denmark is a small country with only 5.6 million people, it has a fascinating and rich history.
Denmark has been ranked as the happiest nation in the world, by UN’s World Happiness Report 2016 Update. Creating a green and sustainable society is one of the key goals for Denmark. Famous for its wind turbines, the country ensures economic equality and virtual nonexistence of corruption which makes the country more interesting and alluring for not only international students, but for everyone.
The Danish educational system is designed to promote creativity, innovation, analytical and critical thinking. Being a student in Denmark is a great opportunity to learn. Global partnerships between higher education institutions, businesses, science parks and public research institutes ensure that study and research in Denmark reflect the latest knowledge and meet the needs of a global labor market.
Problem Based Learning (PBL) is a key feature of education in Denmark. PBL promotes the students’ innovative abilities through problem-based group projects with the teacher as a consultant, and sometimes in collaboration with a company to work on real-world problems.
