If you’re from Brazil, China, Egypt, Japan, South Korea or Russia and you want to study in the happiest country on Earth for free, now’s your chance.
The Danish Government has opened the application for scholarships under cultural agreements for students and young researchers who want to do part of their studies in Denmark. The scholarships mainly target Master’s and PhD. students and allow them to spend up to a year at a Danish university.

Bachelor’s students can also apply, but only if they already have studied Danish for two years, because the scholarship only applies for undergraduate studies in Danish Language and Literature.
The application deadline is on the 1st of March 2018.
The scholarships do not only include free tuition but also a monthly stipend of EUR/870, that you can use for travel costs, visa costs, accommodations and other living expenses. That should have you covered as living costs in Denmark are estimated at about 750-900 EUR/month.Which Danish universities should you consider for doing part of your studies?
Well, you should go for the ones featured in international rankings:
- University of Copenhagen;
- Technical University of Denmark (DTU);
