All semester packages available to exchange students are mentioned and described in the Course Catalogue.
The semester packages described in our course catalogue are available at four of our campuses located in Copenhagen. You cannot always choose the campus yourself but we will take your priorities into consideration when assigning a place in a class.
As an exchange student, you are studying under the same conditions as regular students. You will be studying in classes with Danish as well as other international students. Students will often be divided in groups across nationalities and they will have to solve tasks together. Most casework, projects and exams are performed as group work.
Teaching and exams at Cphbusiness are often interdisciplinary. This means it is not possible for you to combine courses from different programmes in order to compose a tailor-made study programme. You have to apply for a full semester package (30 ECTS) of one educational programme as described in the Course Catalogue.
English proficiency requirements
At Cphbusiness, students must prepare for each class by reading relevant litterature, discussing it with their group or with the lecturers and writing projects already from the first weeks of the semester.

The minimum level of English accepted at Cphbusiness is B2 on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages corresponding to TOEFL 550 or IELTS 6.0.
