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.

Accommodation

Finding accommodation around Copenhagen can be very difficult and competitive. The CBS Housing Department helps international exchange students to find accommodation during their stay at CBS.

Cost of living

Living in Denmark can be quite expensive and your budget will depend on your personal living expenses. CBS provides a breakdown of living expenses to help students get a broad idea of the monthly expenditures that can be expected while studying in Denmark.

Financial support

A range of funding for student exchange including scholarships, grants and loans are available to UQ students.  

Insurance

Students approved to participate in the Student Exchange Program are automatically covered by UQ’s Travel Insurance for the country of their host university only.

For more information, read the Student Travel Insurance Policy Summary on UQ’s Travel Insurance web page (login required).

If you plan to travel outside of your host country, you should purchase additional insurance.

Organise your visa

It is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct visa for the country where you will be studying. As the Global Experiences team 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 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, experiences to that country are suspended until the risk level improves.
