Cost of Living:

The standard of living is high and the economy performs above the European average. Accommodation, food, transport and leisure are therefore relatively expensive in Denmark compared to other countries. But salaries and PhD stipends are correspondingly high, and services such as medical treatment and schools are paid for through the tax and welfare system so that user fees are not charged. Here are some estimated prices:

Housing/rent ~ EUR 300-600/month
Food and daily expenses ~ EUR 200-350/month
Bus ticket ~ EUR 2.70/ride (EUR 19 for ten-ride pass)

Institution Transfer Credit Database:

Transfer credit equivalency shown in the table below is from past assessments done. The following history indicates how a class has been previously assessed but is not necessarily the only way that a class can come back to KPU. The equivalency is subject to change over time with new assessments of the transfer credit needed to be done through a Learning Agreement and Transfer Credit Memo process. This is done for Study Abroad students going abroad through an exchange program when the new course outline of the foreign course is received and assessed by KPU faculty and OREG for transfer back to KPU. Also, availability and access to classes at the partner institution is subject to change.

If you have any questions about how courses from abroad could come back and aid for your program at KPU, please contact an academic advisor of your program and discuss more with them.

If you have questions on this transfer credit process for study abroad exchange purposes to partner Universities and for participation in a Study Abroad program email and you can make an appointment with a Study Abroad Coordinator.
