About the Degree

This programme is taught at SDU’s campus in Sønderborg, Alsion, which is SDU´s most international campus with students and staff from all over the world. You will hear a huge variety of languages spoken every day – most prominent in this mix are, however, English, Danish and German. The great advantage for the students in our programme is that German, Danish and English are not restricted to the classroom but are a natural means of communication outside the classroom as well. SDU at Sønderborg features 
  • a friendly and supportive learning environment,
  • excellent library and IT facilities for students,
  • a beautiful location right on the waterfront,
  • short commutes, which leaves you more time for studying (and leisure).
  • a small but very lively student community.


Documentation may be required verifying that your proficiency in English is at a specified level. Please note that the programme requires an intensive course in Danish which the student must pass before classes begin in September.
