What to Pack
The climate in Denmark varies but spring and summer are generally temperate, windy and occasionally wet. Autumn and winter are windy, dark seasons, but the temperature during the day is rarely excessively cold although it does get below freezing. You will need warm clothing – a warm coat and waterproof shoes are advisable. It is also a good idea to bring a sleeping bag, if you intend to travel during your stay.
Documents and Money
- Tickets and insurance papers
- Passport (check that the passport is valid for the whole period of your stay in Denmark)
- Your 'Letter of Admission' and other relevant documents
- Cash and/or credit card
- Documentary evidence that you have enough money to support yourself while studying in Denmark (a recent bank statement or proof of scholarship)
- Name, telephone, email and address of your contact person at your home institution
- Personal items that will help you feel at home
- Sheets and a blanket or duvet as well as towels
- Adaptor for electrical appliances (220V)
Finally, be sure to check your baggage allowance with the airline or train company with which you are travelling. Paying for excess baggage can be very expensive!
