Guardian Night is a night solely for new students at the Bachelor's Degree in Global Nutrition and Health. The purpose is to introduce you to 'older' students as well as your classmates in an informal and cozy way. GNH Students from 2nd and 7th invite you as a 1st semester students for a free dinner in their homes. In favor of tradition, all new students gather afterwards at a party at Campus Pustervig.
During the semesters we have 'pot-luck'-parties where students and lecturers meet and have dinner. Everyone brings a dish to share, and we enjoy the company of each other and delicious dishes from all over the world!
As a new non-Danish student you are offered a free Danish Course. The course is offered at all levels. The teaching methods are modern using a mix of books, CD's and IT software.
Students, who have to have a residence permit in order to study in Denmark, are allowed to work 15 hours per week. However, during the summer months, June, July and August, foreign students are allowed to work full time. The official Danish website for international recruitment, www.workindenmark.dk has information on how to find a relevant student job, how to write an application, what do in a job interview, etc. The site also has a job and CV bank.
Denmark does not have a tradition for on-campus housing. Most students live together in residences situated some distance from campus. But as most students have a bike, this is not considered a problem. An efficient public transport system also makes it easy to travel between your residence and campus placed right in the city center.
Finding a place to live in Copenhagen can be hard especially during August and September. You have to start looking for housing as soon as you have been accepted into our programme.
As an international student and resident in Denmark, you will benefit from our free, high quality healthcare system. It is run on principles of equality and universal accessibility.
A high quality of life is a key issue here and among other things, Copenhagen is the bicycle capital of the world and we aim to become the world's eco-metropolis by 2015. This goal includes that 90% of Copenhageners will be able to walk to a park, a beach, an area of natural beauty or a harbour swimming facility in less than 15 minutes.
Given the fact that we have all four seasons represented here, we appreciate and enjoy them all especially we celebrate the light in spring and summer, where everyone is outside as long as possible enjoying the sun.
If you are interested in food and gastronomy you should know that Copenhagen currently holds the number one restaurant in the world: Noma, which is known for its reinvention and interpretation of the Nordic Cuisine.
Many organisations offer scholarships or grants. Some of these might help you to study for a Bachelor at Metropolitan University College Copenhagen!
