A number of special programmes exist that supports students financially to do a study abroad activity:
- Erasmus+ Traineeship for recent graduates
- Sino-Danish Center
- Nordic Centre Summer School in Shanghai
- College of Europe
Some students choose to enrol at a summer school abroad to study a single course or to gain other qualifications.
If you choose to pursue this type of study abroad activity your will have to do it mostly by yourself. You will need to find and research which summer schools are of relevance to you and furthermore do the application for the summer school on your own.
You may be eligible for the Danish Study Abroad Scholarship (Udlandsstipendium) if you can get the stay preapproved by your Study Board. Alternatively you may apply for a grant from the Internationalisation Fund for these activities as long as you receive a credit transfer of minimum 5 ECTS. For more information about these two possibilities, check out the page SDU Travel Grants.
