Copenhagen Business School (CBS) is one of the largest business schools in Europe. CBS is one of very few institutions worldwide to receive the “Triple Crown” accreditation, being accredited by AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA.

CBS operates from an urban campus located in Frederiksberg, an integrated part of Copenhagen. The campus is connected to downtown Copenhagen by three on-campus Metro stops. Copenhagen is one of the world’s greenest, cleanest, and most livable cities. Whether you’re there in winter – peak hygge season – or the warmer months, you’ll never be stuck for things to do.

Organise your visa

It is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct visa for the country where you will be studying. As UQ Abroad is not a visa-issuing authority we cannot provide visa advice.

Contact the Danish Immigration Service for visa information.

Travel risk levels

The University of Queensland cannot and does not allow UQ Abroad students to travel to any country with a risk level of 3 (Reconsider your need to travel) or above, as assessed by the Australian Government.

If a country's risk level changes to 3 or above, UQ Abroad programs to that country are suspended until the risk level improves.

Find out the risk level and travel advice for your host country on the Smartraveller website.

Register your travel plans

We recommend that you register your travel plans on the Smartraveller website so that the Australian Government can contact you or your family in an emergency.

Non-Australian citizens should register with their closest consulate.
