Meeting Denmark – and the world

Whether you are in Denmark on a short or longer study stay, you will get an insight into the Danish culture and lifestyle through the social and cultural activities that are either offered by Danida Fellowship Centre in Copenhagen or your place of study outside Copenhagen.

You will get a chance to meet Danish politicians at municipality or parliament level during debate nights.

You will also visit both historical sites like castles and museums or participate in excursions to folk high schools or community halls that reflects the present social aspects of Danish culture.

Moreover, you will be invited to social activities like cooking clubs, movie nights or the annual Xmas event, where you shouldn’t be surprised to find yourself in a global mix of Masai and South American dancing and traditional Xmas carols.

While in Denmark you will definitely get to know about Denmark, but you will also learn about other cultures, and form professional and personal friendships with fellows from different countries and continents.

“It is nice to interact with other students from different countries, getting to know their culture and make new friends from around the world. It is important professionally and personally. Here at the Danida Fellowship Centre I feel that I am part of a family.”

Patrick Chabeda, Environmental and Climate Change Specialist, Kenya

“How did you get the whole society to conform to a certain lifestyle? A certain kind of values?”

Charles Adjei Acquah, Health Worker, Ghana

About the
debate
evenings

These encounters are very exciting. I always feel that the participants are engaged in the discussions and very eager to ask questions that make me see things in a different light.
