Working in Denmark – University of Copenhagen

Welcome > Working in Denmark

Working in Denmark

Some international students manage to find student jobs or casual work while living in Copenhagen. However, it is quite difficult for international students to find work in Denmark, so when planning your stay in Copenhagen, you should not base your finances on obtaining paid employment.

Places to look for student jobs include

Work Permit

For information on how to apply for a work permit, please refer to the information under Residence Permit at the Master's and Exchange and Guest Studentsites (same information).

Volunteer Work

If you wish to engage in the local Danish community through volunteer work, the Cph Volunteer website offers a range of opportunities. This is also a great way to meet and socialize with other Copenhageners.
