The Engineering College of Copenhagen review by Jose Angel

HOUSING    
Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: International Students Apartment/Residence
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Same Place
Why? You get to befriend a lot of people from all over Europe living in that residence.
Personal comments:
Accomodation may vary depending on what the university has available. You may get to live in residences, wich are nice if you want to know people, especially those with a lot of international students. You may get to live with families wich may be a different experience. Most housing is not near the university or Copenhagen center, so you will probably need to use public transport or get a bike.

Language difficulties
Social
KEY:
No problems.
I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: English
Local language was: Different than language of instruction.
Was learning English a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my English
Was learning the local language a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my knowledge
How much did you improve your English?
My level before: Everyday knowledge (shopping, directions, etc.)
My level after: At ease in most situations
How much did you improve your local language?
My level before: Did not speak it
My level after: Basic phrases
Personal comments:
You can do pretty well speaking English at Denmark. Most of the people can answer to you in that language. Add to that Danish is a not so used lenguage, with a complicate phonetic, and you underestand why most students in Denmark try very little with the local language. These who want would find people helps them, tough.

EXPENSES    
The accessibility of student needs
Second-hand text books
KEY:
Very easy.
Minimal effort.
Accessible but required effort.
Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Administrative
Money from home
Main source of funding:
Family
Other sources of funding:
An ERASMUS grant
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits:
Denmark is, in general, a more expensive country than Spain. Some services are however cheaper, as cell phones.
Food, Travel, Nightlife, Overall: was more expensive than at home.
Housing: was the same price as at home.
Telephone: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
You can return bottles for money, however supermarket bags do cost, so bring your own from home. If you plan to move around a lot, might be interesting buying montly tickets for public transport, depending on the transport zones you need. Be careful of second-hand bikes, some require an higher price on repairing than you paid for them. Police auctions might be a better solution.
