Campus Horsens


Campus Horsens offers a vibrant student life in an international setting. Both Danish and international students create a very active study environment in which common areas and closely situated student accommodation will frame your life. 
Campus Horsens offers a number of programmes taught in English primarily within the fields of architecture, engineering, marketing, management and business. In Danish, Campus Horsens additionally offers programmes in nursing and social education.
With all of these programmes offered in both languages, it is only natural that a large number of students come from other countries than Denmark. At Campus Horsens, approximately half of the students are international, either exchange students or full degree students.

  • Students: 4,000
  • International students: 2,000
