Copenhagen is a little bit off the beaten track, which is exactly why it is so interesting. A cosmopolitan capital and university center of 1.5 million people, Copenhagen is a safe and hospitable city that combines medieval charm with modern lifestyles and easy access to the rest of continental Europe.
The CSI sponsored program is through DIS Study Abroad in Scandinavia, an internationally renowned study abroad organization. The DIS program is located at the very center of medieval Copenhagen, in a beautifully restored building from 1789, which includes a library, student lounges, computer labs, student advising and information services, architecture studios, and a few new classrooms.
The program is challenging but manageable; courses are taught in English by Danish faculty, on a level comparable to selective universities.

”I will never look at furniture the same way now that I have had first hand experience with Danish design. Quality workmanship, an emphasis on function, and attention to good aesthetics are all characteristics of Danish design that I acquired in the DIS Program. Where else but Denmark can you experience a fantastic city, most of it on foot, touch (and sit in!) the fabulous furniture pieces from the master designers of both past and present, AND learn how to weld?”
“Spending a short 6 weeks in Copenhagen with the Nursing in Scandinavia program has given me a more global perspective on nursing. We were incorporated into a culture embodying different views and opinions than our own in an atmosphere where all parties involved were able to learn and grow from the differences. This experience abroad has given me a strong curiosity to learn and grow with more cultures. My eyes have been opened to a whole new world of opportunities. “
