VIA University College


General Information

  1. General information about Denmark

The Danish society is a modern, knowledge-based society. The constant search for new knowledge has made Denmark one of the frontrunners in the development and implementation of green technology. Denmark is a world leader in wind power technology. More than 20% of Denmark’s energy already comes from renewable energy, and the goal is to reach 100% by 2050.

Denmark ranks above average in many dimensions in the OECD Better Life Index: work-life balance, social connections, environmental quality, civic engagement, education and skills, jobs and earnings, subjective well-being and personal security.     

In addition, Denmark has some of the world’s best public hospitals and healthcare facilities and a reliable public transportation system. Denmark is therefore a safe destination for your future studies - and career, as the Danish labor market is calling for skilled work and is looking to hire international talents.
