Students with background mainly in Business and Commerce have few options, unless they would like to study Anthropology or would focus on cross-discipline courses and Danish Culture courses designed especially for exchange students.

Pre-semester Danish language course available. It is possible to take Danish courses during the semester as well - there are no tuition fees, however students need to purchase course material.
