Margarita - 2019

I decided to complete another short term experience after having completed last year's exchange program to Finland. I fell in love with the Nordics and was set on coming back to experience more of Scandinavia. I believe the rest of the world has so much to learn about these group of northern countries and they are leading the way when it comes to education, healthcare, design, innovation and happiness! (Finland and Denmark are number 1 and 2 in the World Happiness Report).

Junyue - 2019

First of all, taking part in short-term experience allows me to get two UQ credits in other schools and other countries. Second, I think this is a good opportunity to open up my horizons. I can take advantage of the short-term experience program to experience the education system of other countries, learn about the culture of other countries, meet friends from all over the world, and travel to other countries.

Yushan - 2018

I love everything about this study abroad experience! Studying itself was enjoyable due to the inspiring and open-minded professors, interactive and fun class activities, as well as creative classmates from diverse backgrounds(most from different EU countries). Living in Denmark was super cozy and chilled.

Jordan - 2018

Whilst on my summer semester I studied two courses - Financial modelling and International Financial management and hedging. These courses provided valuable practical content that I have not received from many courses elsewhere in my degree. The courses were definitely worthwhile and carry with them knowledge that I believe I would certainly be able to use within my professional career. My favourite part of studying overseas was the opportunity to meet new people from a huge spectrum of backgrounds and nationalities, it was also incredible to experience a different culture.

Alysha - 2018

My favourite aspect of studying overseas was the opportunity to become completely immersed in the Danish student life, meeting students from all over the world and picking up a few Danish language phrases here and there. Furthermore, Copenhagen is a real food hub. The Reffen Street Food market is a platform for local food start-ups, a true highlight of my Copenhagen food adventure.
