EDU is the Danish representative for approximately 40 universities in Australia, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore and the United States of America.

Are you considering studying abroad as a free-mover for a semester or two or even doing your masters degree in countries such as the United States, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico or Asia? If so, then you should probably check out EDU days.

Study fair with alternative exchange destinations
The EDU Days Study Fair offers Danish university plenty of opportunities to get inspiration and guidance towards planning a stay at a university abroad. The Study Fair is held on Monday February 27th in the Falconer Centre – a two minute walk from CBS, Solbjerg Plads.

At the fair there will be representatives from universities in the United States, Australia, Singapore and New Zealand to talk to about specific wants, needs and opportunities regarding studying abroad. It will also be possible to attend a large line-up of inspiring and informative presentations. Among these there will through the day be presentations by CBS students who have studied abroad with EDU, along with presentations about what makes a good scholarship application and presentations from the foreign universities.

It will also be possible to get assistance from EDU’s advisers and information about the many foreign exchange possibilities you get as a free-mover. All CBS students are invited to come and soak up knowledge, ask questions and get inspired.

EDU helps CBS’ free-movers get abroad
Every year, EDU helps hundreds of students go abroad, many of whom study at CBS and choose to go abroad with the so-called ‘udlandsstipendium’; a scholarship students who choose to go abroad as free-movers get to help cover their expenses. Free-movers include students who have been denied a foreign exchange placement, don’t have the GPA required or simply want to go to another university than the ones that CBS has agreements with.

The students return home with a new perspective on their skills, improved language capabilities, experiences that will last them a lifetime and new friends from all around the world. :

- Not only was it the best semester of my entire education, but also one of the best experiences I’ve ever had says Sasha, who studies Intercultural Marketing Communication at CBS, about her semester at James Cook University.

Christina, who studies BSc in Business Administration and Psychology, also gained a lot from her foreign exchange program. Since she returned to Denmark, she has converted her semester abroad into a student job at ‘Institut for Selskabsledelse’ (an exclusive invitation-only forum for the top of the Danish business sector - directly translated, it means Institute for Company Leadership):

- At the interview they were very interested in my semester in Singapore, and I definitely think that it had an influence on them, so they offered me the job, she recounts.
