Denmark is a Scandinavian country comprising the Jutland Peninsula and numerous islands. It's linked to nearby Sweden via the Öresund bridge. Copenhagen, its capital, is home to royal palaces and colorful Nyhavn harbor, plus the Tivoli amusement park and the iconic “Little Mermaid” statue. Odense is writer Hans Christian Andersen’s hometown, with a medieval core of cobbled streets and half-timbered houses.
Denmark has one of the strongest economies in Europe, characterised by a balanced state budget, stable currency, low interest rates and low inflation.Denmark classed as a high-income economy by the World Bank.The Danish economy continues to benefit from a high degree of regulatory efficiency and this economy is small, open and highly geared to trade with other countries. Open-market policies encourage flexibility, competitiveness, and flows of trade and investment, and the transparent and efficient legal environment facilitates robust entrepreneurial activity
Denmark’s natural resources include natural gas, wind- and bio-energy, petroleum, chalk, salt, limestone, stone, gravel and sand.
Public higher education institutions in Denmark are regulated by national legislation concerning degree structures, teacher qualifications and examinations. Accreditation in higher education is undergoing transition from programme-based accreditation to institutional accreditation. Programmes and institutions are accredited by national, independent accreditation agencies and the Accreditation Council.
Danish higher education comprises a university sector, college sector and an academy sector. There are four types of institutions offering higher education programmes:
- Academies of professional higher education (offering short-cycle programmes)
- University Colleges (offering medium-cycle programmes)
- Universities (offering long-cycle programmes)
- University level institutions for educations in the arts
Structural changes on institutional level have affected parts of the system of higher education. All short-cycle higher educations are now concentrated in nine Academies of professional higher education (Erhvervsakademier). The majority of medium-cycle education is concentrated in 7 University Colleges (Professionshøjskoler).
Denmark doesn’t have the stop-you-in-your-tracks natural grandeur of its neighbours, but its landscapes are understated – pure and simple, often infused with an ethereal Nordic light. Such landscapes are reflected in the Danish design philosophy towards fashion, food, architecture, furniture and art.
The climate in Denmark is pleasant in the summertime (May - August). Typical daytime temperatures in the midsummer are a little more than 20 degrees C. May is a specially charming month, as the spring is at its height. September can often be very rainy.
The Winter in Denmark can be quite cold. Temperature falls sometimes until 15 - 30°C below zero. Then the country is ruled by snow, ice and icy winds. Even in April it is still possible to have a snowstorm. In the wintertime the sun rises only little above the horizon and for months (roughly October - March) the days are dark and short.
Lightweights with rainwear for summer, waterproof and warmer clothing for winter.An umbrella and a sweater are necessary almost any time of year.
