The Danish market shares characteristics with other Northern European markets but with some unique features that set us apart from the rest.
Danish students are:
- Academically well rounded and typically in their early to mid 20s
- Among the best non-native English speakers in the world
- Eligible for more public funding than most other students in the world (typically 40-100 % of tuition fees & a living expense grant)
- Typically relatively mature and experienced travelers
- Likely to follow through with applications (application conversions around 90 %)
- Focused on spending at least one semester of their university program abroad
- Quality conscious with a tendency to prioritize academic quality over cost
Building relationships with our partner universities is as essential to us as helping students make the right decisions about studying abroad. When it comes to our partners, we focus on:
- Building solid long-term relationships based on mutual understanding and open communication
- Having a select group of quality partners rather than a large portfolio
- Providing annual reports and provide feedback as well as recommendations to all partners
- Assisting our partners in identifying new market opportunities
- Keeping our partners updated on developments in the Danish market with Newsletters 4 times per year
- Visiting our partners on campus and encouraging them to visit us
No one knows Danish students like us. Our presence in the market spans three decades and through the years we have developed our approach to spreading the word about ‘our’ universities. Among other things, we market our universities by:
- Organizing our ‘EDU Days’ fairs in March and September (largest educational fairs in Denmark)
- Participating in fairs at major Danish universities & Institutions of Higher Education
- Organizing info events for individual students, interest groups and professional associations
- General online marketing campaigns (Facebook, Instagram and Google Adwords)
- Representing partners all year round and wherever we go
- Employing EDU alumni as part-time student advisors to share their experiences
Servicing our students to their full satisfaction is crucial to our business. To our students we offer free of charge:
- Help to determine which study option best suits their needs
- Support throughout the application, admissions and reentry processes
- Dedicated and experienced fulltime staff and EDU alumni to help them on their way
- Problem solving when needed to ensure a smooth transition from studying in Denmark to being an international student
- Information sessions for future students across the country

- Focus in the intercultural learning process and the competences gained abroad
- Facebook groups where students can connect with each other
- Presentations and advice about applying for private funding
- Respect, trust and neutrality when we advise students.
- The guidance we provide is tailored to the individual
