List of DTU courses that have been pre-approved for Drexel equivalents: DTU - Drexel Course Equivalents
If you would like to take courses from the catalog that are not listed on the above course equivalents spreadsheet, you will need to have equivalents approved by the appropriate department. For example, if you want to take a sociology course for Drexel credit, the Sociology Department at Drexel must pre- approve the course and equivalency.
Students may also choose to study Danish language at the nearby language school, Hellerup Sprogskole, for an additional fee. Interested students may sign up for these languages courses directly with DTU at the start of the semester.
The DTU academic calendar is available here.
DTU is a semester based school. The program is available to Drexel students during DTU's Fall semester:
* Start - Early Sept (before summer term ends)
* End - Mid-Dec (before winter term begins)
* Students with summer term classes should be prepared to request early finals so they can leave for Denmark in late August/ early September. Students on spring/summer co-op will need to arrange to leave their co-op early.
Due to the potential need to adjust academic and co-op cycles, students are urged to begin planning 12 months prior to their intended study abroad term.
VisaAll students are required to obtain a visa prior to entry into Denmark.
Scholarship & Funding Opportunities. Remember that scholarship deadlines may be much earlier than study abroad deadlines, so plan accordingly.
