Copenhagen is truly a beautiful city filled with beautiful people. Everyone cycles everywhere – the great thing about this is that you save money on transport and you also get fit! Thankfully there is free health care for exchange students, so you don’t need to worry too much about crashing into anything!
The University of Copenhagen, not unlike UTS, is scattered across the city and doesn’t have a campus. It is very easy to get to uni, as most of the student houses are only a 15-20 minute cycle away from the main campuses. The inside of the university is absolutely beautiful! Each subject has 1 – 2 classes per week, with allocated reading material. I am currently studying Introduction to Danish Law, International Human Rights Law and States of Emergency Powers. The subjects are extremely interesting and it is interesting to see how the Danish education system works.
Since Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark, there is so much to see and do, such as the Little Mermaid, Amalienborg Palace and The Marble Church. Moreover, the cobblestone streets of Copenhagen are absolutely beautiful!
Although it is expensive to eat out, the famous Danish open sandwiches (smørrebrød) are a must!
What I also love about Copenhagen is that there is so much to do all the time. With so many food markets, flea markets, cafes and bars, there is literally something for everyone! Further, a lot of the other main Danish cities (such as Aarhus, Odense and Aalborg) are only a quick train ride away. It’s also easy to visit cities outside of Denmark – so far, I have been lucky enough to go see the Northern Lights up in Kiruna, the wonderful city of Stockholm and the exciting city of London!
It’s hard to believe that it has already been six weeks since I arrived here in Copenhagen. I have met some truly amazing people here in Copenhagen and I have had the most amazing experience here so far.
I am excited for the rest of my exchange adventure!
