Course recommendations
Because my home university was just for "undergraduates" while DTU only had a combined undergraduate/graduate program, I made a mistake in choosing some of my classes because I ended up taking courses that were WAY beyond my level but it really could not have been avoided; the set-up up highschool vs. Danish gymnasium and then university is quite different in the two schools/nations.

Make sure you don't goof off during the semester since there's only ONE exam (for most classes) at the end of the course...
