Program Overview

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 the DIS Study Abroad in Scandinavia, an internationally renowned study abroad organization affiliated with the University of Copenhagen. 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.

Adventures abroad

Amanda Hill

“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. “
