Student Mobility

The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences welcomes approximately 100 exchange and guest students each semester within all our fields of study.

Exchange and guest students are students who are spending one or two semesters at the University of Copenhagen as part of a degree programme at their home university.

Please note that some study programmes accept a very limited number of exchange and guest students.


We offer an extensive number of study elements in English, for instance:

  • semester courses
  • summer courses
  • clinical rotations
  • research projects

We have a limited number of bachelor's courses in English but an extensive number of master's courses.

The primary language is Danish at the faculty, therefore, students who are proficient in Danish have additional courses to choose from.



The faculty’s study programmes are taught in semester and/or block structure.

The autumn semester runs 1 September – 31 January.

  • Block 1: September-mid-November
  • Block 2: mid-November – end-January

The spring semester runs 1 February – 30 June.

  • Block 3: February – mid-April
  • Block 4: mid-April – end-June

The international summer courses are taught in July-August; certain courses have e-learning component that begins earlier.

Please make sure your courses do not overlap; check the schedule groups in the course descriptions.
