Such an amazing experience!!!

Copenhagen was such a beautiful city, it’s clean, safe, sustainable, and easy to get around. The CIEE staff were so helpful, and planned really amazing day trips and hygge nights. Because of this you got to see things that you might not have otherwise had the chance. The classes were manageable so you get a really good balance of school and getting out to see the culture. You will be with other American students so making friends is less daunting. My housing was really nice, I had a single room near amager just outside the city. They help you rent a bike if you would like one, which is a popular way to get around the city.

CIEE Copenhagen 2022

Gosh, I love this program, the staff, and this city!!!!!! Not only is Denmark an incredible well fare state but it's something that tourists or more long-term tourists can see and experience. I used CIEE as my study abroad program and couldn't recommend it more; the staff really made the city feel empowering and fun, even when things got intense (medical issues) I was greatly supported. Copenhagen's public transportation is so clean and effective that it made it seamless to move around and even travel outside the major metropolitan city.

Gender and Sexuality J-Term at CIEE Copenhagen

My experience with the CIEE during January Term will always be one of my fondest experiences. The faculty at the CIEE Global Institute were always willing to help review any concept that I had trouble with or even sit and have a meaningful conversation about Danish culture. Our program blended class trips and leisure activities, which were the perfect balance for our group. The academic environment was rich and meaningful; you always learned something and your voice always mattered within the discussion.

What would you improve about this program?
More immersion in the Danish language and culture!
