Accommodation

The University of Copenhagen provides advice on how to find accommodation during the summer.

Visa for international students

If you are an international student, please make sure to check if you need a visa to enter Denmark.

If you are a citizen of a country without a visa requirement, you may enter and stay visa-free in Denmark (and the Schengen region) for a maximum of 90 days.

If you are a citizen of a country with a visa requirement, you must apply for a short term visa to participate in a summer course. A visa normally grants you the right to enter and stay in Denmark (and the entire Schengen region) for up to 90 days.

On the New to Denmark-website, you can read more about short term visas and download the application form.

The Faculty of Science can issue a letter of invitation if this is needed for your visa application, but you must contact the Danish representation in your home country for specific details concerning the application procedure and support.

Once you have been admitted to the course, you can request a letter of invitation by contacting the international student affairs office at the Faculty of Science.

Please note that the application process can be time consuming, so you should apply for a visa as early as possible.
