Course recommendations
The approachability of lecturers varied greatly - some were fantastic and always ready to help out with whatever problems you had whilst others were very reluctant to help when you really needed it.

Personal comments
Inform incoming students of the volume of work expected of them in a single course, to earn the credits I required at my home university I had to take 6 courses, which proved difficult in terms of studying for exams and completion of coursework throughout the semester. Perhaps if I had known about the amount of coursework involved I could have arranged to take fewer classes whilst on exchange.

Final comments
look out for the 'whats on' guide in english every month - this tells you about all the concerts and performances that are happening. also most of the nightclubs have a night when entry is free... a good way to say some kroner

As I am an english speaker I experienced very few problems in communicating with people. The opportunity to learn the local language as not really a factor in deciding where to study, although I did enrol in danish class which allowed me to learn some basic terms and phrases.

Housing
Type of housing: With a family
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: On campus
Why?
I feel that through living on campus I would have had the opportunity to meet & integrate with other students more easily, which was made more dificult through living off campus, in the suburbs.

Personal comments
More should be done to provide on campus accomodation for international students as I don't feel that lodging with families is an ideal suiting to the student lifestyle.

turesday nights devoted to the on campus bar for 'international student night' - great for meeting other students & organising the weekend parties - thursdays at park cafe, weekends at vega or wherever the party was... for quieter times the turtle cafe near jorges passage had good bands and great food!
