Change of direction regarding international students


 In a remarkable policy turnaround, Denmark has announced the reopening of its doors to international students, signaling a significant shift in the government’s approach. This decision follows a decline in international student numbers over the past years, attributed to the cancellation of numerous English-language university programs. The government now aims to reestablish itself as a sought-after destination for international students, recognizing the value they bring to academia and society.

  • 1,100 new university places will be open, yearly, between 2024 and 2028. 
  • From 2029, the number will increase to 2500 new places open every year. 
  • Half of the new programs in English will be placed outside of the 4 big cities and they will follow the needs of the job market. 
  • Dansk Industri (Confederation of Danish Industry) welcomes the change of direction.
