"It has been amazing to meet all of the Danish students in class, and hear about what they love about Copenhagen, what they love about Denmark and how our different school experiences are. To learn from professors, who are from all over the world, has been really eye-opening and very cool to learn these different perspectives in class.

I think one of the best things has been the social programme - they have been bringing us to different places around Denmark, showing us the sights, bringing us all around Copenhagen, getting to see various places, getting different experiences and then getting to meet all these other people from all over the world at the same time."

"Professors are amazing - professors from all around the world - with such high degrees. Such a beautiful setting where people are actually talking a lot and the professors are actually facilitator rather than just the lecturer, which is a very beautiful concept.

The dorms have been great - this is the nicest room I have ever lived in."

"I love about all the international students here, you can find people from Europe and Australia and America and of course, I am from China. So it is a very multicultural background and people just inspire each other and share ideas."
