Program Description:
DIS Study Abroad Applicants: Due to an increasingly high volume of applicants seeking to study at The Danish Institute for Study Abroad (DIS), the Office of International Education highly encourages students to complete all application materials with Endicott College and DIS at least 6 weeks prior to the deadline set by DIS. Applications received by DIS 3-4 weeks before their application deadline are subject to being wait-listed. 

DIS Building


Danish Institute for Study Abroad (DIS), is an internationally renowned study abroad organization affiliated with the University of Copenhagen. The DIS program is located at the very center of medieval Copenhagen, in a beautifully restored building from 1789, which includes a library, student lounges, computer labs, student advising and information services, architecture studios, and a few new classrooms. DIS – Danish Institute for Study Abroad is a government-recognized, high-quality study abroad program established in 1959. All DIS courses and academic programs are intellectually stimulating and challenging – and are all taught in English. But at DIS, study abroad is not solely about academics, it is about providing a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students to experience new situations and build and develop leadership skills for a globalized world. That is why DIS is dedicated to providing the complete study abroad experience.


Copenhagen is a little bit off the beaten track, which is exactly why it is so interesting. A cosmopolitan capital and university center of 1.5 million people, Copenhagen is a safe and hospitable city that combines medieval charm with modern lifestyles and easy access to the rest of continental Europe.


The program is challenging but manageable; courses are taught in English by Danish faculty, on a level comparable to selective universities. For information on courses offered, please visit the DIS Course Offerings website and select study at "DIS Copenhagen". 

Please note the following: 
  • DIS requires a cumulative GPA of 3.0 for admission
  • Students must have completed 3 semesters at Endicott at the time of their application. 
Students that fall below these requirements must seek an alternate location.

Where you live is an important part of your study abroad experience, and hopefully the basis for a rich cultural and social interaction during your time in Denmark! When studying at DIS, you have six housing options to choose from at DIS. You should read the options carefully and request the housing option that best suits you. All options ensure you live with English speakers. You are encouraged to maximize your exposure to Danish culture and language during the semester, no matter what your housing choice. For information on all housing options, visit the DIS Housing website.


Tuition at DIS is higher than Endicott tuition. As a result, students will be billed the higher tuition on their semester bill. Please refer to the Budget Sheet, listed above, for exact costs.

Students studying at DIS will have two variable costs, those being board and sponsor fees. Students who choose to live in a homestay or Folkehojskole will be charged a commuter meal plan rate (10 meals per week), while students living in all other housing options will receive and be charged for a $600 food stipend. This $600 fee will be added to the existing $300 sponsor fee, resulting in a board charge of $0 and a sponsor fee of $900.

Student Life

At DIS, students are encouraged to take advantage of the many cultural and student activities. For more information, visit the DIS websites on adventure trips, day trips, and cultural immersion. Get involved in as much as possible, including:

-Live the local culture through voluntary involvement in a range of social, sporting, religious and cultural programs
-Sign up to join organizations and clubs at the ‘Immerse Yourself Fair’, where local groups, clubs and societies offer you the chance to join and take part in their activities
-Maximize your study abroad experience by meeting and socializing with Danes your own age and interacting with the local culture.

Health and Safety

All students will travel abroad with GeoBlue international health insurance, which is purchased by the College. Students will receive an electronic and hard copy of their insurance card, and should a doctor's visit (commonly referred to as hospital visit abroad) be necessary, they should reach out to their on-site study abroad coordinator/resident director. Students will be required to contact GeoBlue prior to their appointment, unless of course in the case of an emergency, and should follow the procedures outlined here. 

Students are also encouraged to register themselves in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), a free service provided by the U.S. government to U.S. citizens traveling abroad. STEP allows Americans abroad to receive updates from the nearest embassy or consulate and allows the Department of State to better assist you in an emergency.
