Copenhagen is a vibrant European metropolis, yet it has a small-town feel. DIS is located in the heart of Copenhagen and consists of two historic buildings from 1798 as well as an adjacent classroom building.
The College Consortium for International Studies (CCIS), a partnership of colleges and universities—two and four year, large and small, public and private, domestic and foreign—encompasses the broad spectrum of international higher education. CCIS members sponsor a variety of programs, notably study abroad programs and professional development seminars for faculty and administrators, which are designed to enhance international/intercultural perspectives within the academic community.
Program OverviewDIS– Danish Institute for Study Abroad, founded in 1959, has 50 years of experience in offering high quality study abroad programming in Copenhagen, Denmark taught in English for upper-level U.S. undergraduate students. In the 2016-2017 academic year, Stockholm was added as a location due to high demand for DIS programs. DIS is a non-profit educational foundation governed by an external board of directors. It is tuition driven, but receives a subsidy from the Danish government.
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 CCIS sponsored program is through the Danish Institute for Study Abroad (DIS), 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. The program is challenging but manageable; courses are taught in English by Danish faculty, on a level comparable to selective universities.
