Going abroad

Continuity is one of the main ingredients for successful integration in Denmark. We therefore advise all our international students to focus on their studies, learn Danish and try their best to find and carry out their internship in Denmark.

Interrupting your stay in Denmark by a semester or internship abroad usually means losing accommodation, address, part-time job as well as having extra costs. When you are back, you might have to start all over again.

We strongly recommend our students to focus on achieving the highest possible results for your study programme in Denmark as well as learning Danish. These factors are proven to increase your possibilities of finding internship and a full-time job after graduation.

Internship abroad

Cphbusiness regards internships in Denmark as the best way for international students to integrate on the job market. An internship in Denmark means the possibility to practice Danish, get accustomed to the Danish working culture, a Danish network as well as – if both company and intern are satisfied – a first full-time job after graduation.

You may choose to carry out your internship in another country than Denmark or your home country. Cphbusiness International can assist you with this process.

Study period abroad

Long-term study period

You may choose to study for one semester at one of the exchange partner institutions of Cphbusiness or at another educational institution abroad. You will be introduced to your possibilities, the procedures, the financial consequences etc. by the international coordinators after you have commenced your studies at Cphbusiness. 

Short-term study period

A number of educational programmes offer short term study programmes abroad – typically 14 days. The programmes are an integrated part of the curriculum - for example a project or an elective course. The 14-days programmes are optional and all expenses are covered by the students themselves.

Very often the programmes are developed in cooperation with one of our international partners, with the participation of students from both the partner institution and Cphbusiness.

Cphbusiness conducts short term programmes in for instance:

  • Korea: Seoul
  • Ghana: Cape Coast
  • Germany: Berlin


The Erasmus+ programme is the European Union programme for education, training, youth and sport. It grants more than 25 million Euros annually to mobility activities and collaborative projects between educational institutions and organisations in Denmark and the European countries. The programme supports Cphbusiness students who undertake a study at a partner university/internship in another EU/EAA country. Write to outgoing@cphbusiness.dk for more information or read more about possibilities and rates etc. here.
