Student Life

When you study Global Health, you will be part of an international and vibrant study environment. Many of our students are engaged in various extracurricular activities, for example our student blog Eye on Global Health where they write about topics related to global health.

The University of Copenhagen (UCPH) has a sports association, USG, that offers all students more than 80 different sporting activities. There are plenty of opportunities to meet and socialise with fellow students.


CSS CampusThe majority of the teaching takes place at the campus called Centre for Health and Society (often referred to by its Danish abbreviation CSS). It is located in central Copenhagen – just between the Botanical Gardens and the Sortedams Lake.

CSS is placed in a building complex from the 1860s that used to house a hospital. With bright rooms and cosy outdoor areas this location offers attractive and inspiring place to study.

The MSc in Global Health students share the campus with students from the Masters programmes in International Health and Disaster Management as well as BSc and MSc students from the Departments of Anthropology, Sociology, Political Science, Public Health, Economy, and Psychology.

Finding Housing

Since it can be extremely difficult to find accommodation in Copenhagen, foreign students are strongly advised to make own arrangements concerning accommodation before leaving for Denmark. 

The International Office at UCPH has collected some very useful information on their site about finding housing on your own in Copenhagen

The School of Global Health have an agreement with the housing department at UCPH’s Frederiksberg Campus. You will receive a housing application form once you have been admitted to the programme. If you wish to stay at the Frederiksberg Campus you should use this form.
