Cost of Living


Study costs

Costs directly related to the study such as books are around 200€ to 300€ per semester, however materials can be bought cheaper from students from higher classes, or borrowed or scanned from the library.


Costs of living

Estimated cost of living depends on the city, and of course on the individual person. Accommodation, transportation, food and leisure activities costs are about 450-550 euros per month. The average student wage is around 12-14 euros per hour.



Most of the universities offer accommodation for international students at their dormitories (single or shared room), however the interest is high and we strongly recommend you to start looking for another option of accommodation.



Well maintained and furnished rooms with wireless internet connection, with shared kitchen (including the fridge and other facilities). In many campuses you will find a lounge with pool table, TV and various board games. Dormitories are a great place to get to know your fellow students and to make friends. The average price is around 200-250 euros.


The residence and work permit

Every citizen has the right to come to Scandinavia. No later than three months after entering into the country, the citizen must apply for a residence permit, in most universities the application is made in collaboration with the university.


Job Opportunities

The residence permit allows to find a job and work during the week and weekends and summer holidays. It is a great idea to start learning Danish before coming to Denmark in order to get a better job, but you also have a chance to find a job without Danish.
