Studying at the University of Southern Denmark offers students the opportunity to study at a top-ranked international university while enjoying a vibrant, multicultural campus environment.

The University of Southern Denmark is a multi-campus public research university with a student enrollment of nearly 20,000. 

Exchange students can study at the Odense, Kolding, Esberg, Sønderborg, or Slagelse campuses, each with their own academic specialties and unique character. 


The University of Southern Denmark is comprised of five faculties: Humanities, Science, Engineering, Social Sciences and Health Sciences.

Courses in many areas, including business, the sciences, math, humanities, social sciences, and Scandinavian Area Studies, are offered in English. 

Students are advised to choose their campus of study based on the courses offered there. 
Students of all majors are eligible to participate in this exchange. Complete course information can be found in their online course catalog



Accommodation at the University of Southern Denmark differs between campuses. Some require you to find your own accommodation while others guarantee on-campus housing for students.

Campus Odense generally guarantees housing to all international students. Student halls are located off-campus but within a reasonable distance from campus. All rooms are single occupancy, fully-furnished, and have internet access.

Student Life and Surroundings

The University of Southern Denmark fosters a multicultural atmosphere that is a welcoming environment to exchange students.

Students on exchange will be greeted by a SDU representative upon arrival at campus, and will participate in an orientation with other international students.  Student advisors will be made available to exchange students with questions about coursework, exams, or any questions regarding their studies. 

The five campus cities range in population from 27,000 in Sønderborg to 170,000 in Odense. Along with many of the great things that Denmark has to offer, its location makes it possible to easily travel to the rest of Europe.


Cost of Attendance, Financial Aid, and Scholarships

Exchange programs are affordable study abroad options that allow students to pay UW-W tuition while studying abroad.  As with all approved study abroad programs, UW-W financial aid can be used on this program.  Eligible students are encouraged to apply for the Wisconsin Grant for Study Abroad, and UW-W and external study abroad scholarships are available.
