Student Life

The greater Randers area has some 93,000 inhabitants, making Randers the seventh-largest city in Denmark.

With an AP Degree from Dania Academy of Higher Education you get an excellent starting point for your career. But there is more to student life than just studying! Studying abroad is also a great personal experience where you get to meet new people, see new places and experience new cultures.

The city of Randers is big enough to have all the facilities an international student could want, but small enough to have retained its friendly atmosphere and cheaper to live in than other major Danish cities.

Randers is well situated in terms of access to the rest of Denmark, just 35 kilometres from Denmarks second-largest city Århus and about 4 hours by train from Copenhagen, the capital city.

Historic yet modern...

Viborg is one of Denmark's oldest cities with traces back to ancient times. Until 1660, all Danish kings where hailed in Viborg, and noble gentlemen and Catholic bishops adorned the city with beautiful and prestigious buildings, including the characteristic cathedral with two towers.

Viborg is today still a lively market town with all that it entails. Viborg Municipality has it all, a myriad of specialty shops, chain stores and department stores. In addition, good cafes, restaurants and active nightlife. You can get a better insight about the student life on Dania's official student blog.
