Student life at VIA

  • Denmark as a host country

    Core values in Denmark include freedom for the individual, equality, tolerance and a strong sense of mutual trust.

    Denmark can be seen as a bridge between Scandinavia and the rest of Europe. 

    When you live in Denmark, you can enjoy a balanced lifestyle, and have time for both work and leisure.

    While there is a strong respect for the community, there is also a strong emphasis on personal freedom and the opportunity to pursue and fulfil individual potential. 

    Personal freedom and responsibility go hand in hand when you are a student in Denmark.

  • International study environment

    The international environment at VIA is a great platform for intercultural understanding.

    An international outlook is a natural and integrated part of our daily lives. 

    Every year more than 2.500 international students from more than 50 different countries attend a programme at one of our schools. 

    This means that the exchange of ideas is not limited to the exchange between Denmark and the international student’s home country, but takes place in a truly international environment represented by students from all over the world. 

    Studying with intercultural understanding 

    Students from many different nationalities meet each other during project work and after classes, where an intercultural understanding is part of the social student life. 

    Cultural differences are greatly appreciated at VIA and we are proud to contribute to the general process of intercultural understanding.
