General information

The Department of Nordic Studies and Linguistics is offering a 3-week intensive Danish language summer course. The courses consist of classes in the morning and an optional cultural activities programme in the afternoon.

The courses in Danish as a Foreign Language for international students at the University of Copenhagen consist of intensive language instruction classes. Danish is studied and taught as a foreign language for communicative as well as academic purposes.

In accordance with a discursive view of language and a primarily cognitive view of language acquisition, the courses integrate theoretical knowledge of lexicon, grammar and phonology in the process of developing communicative competences in modern Danish, spoken and written.


Please note that the summer courses are non-residential. Participants are responsible for finding and funding accommodation during their stay in Copenhagen.

You can use different online portals to search for accommodation, such as:

Hostel World

UCPH Housing Foundation (acceptance letter from UCPH required).
