Course recommendations
Danish educational system is quite "soft" compared to other countries, so you may be dissapointed if you are waiting for teachers pressing you to learn.

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.

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.

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.
