Incoming and Outgoing Students
The International Office is responsible for administrating and developing international student exchange agreements and programmes. We welcome more than 2,000 international students to the University annually from all over the world, and we send out around 1,000 on student exchange.
The International Office provides services such as admission, housing, mentor and orientation programmes for our incoming students. The students can come into our Guidance and Admissions office during our opening hours to collect information brochures, ask questions and get advice.
Our outgoing students can seek information about exchange programmes, partner universities, summer schools, language tests etc. in our library and speak with student advisors in our office to plan their studies abroad.
The University of Copenhagen has bilateral exchange agreements with more than 130 universities worldwide. In addition to that, we exchange students and staff with a large number of partner institutions through the Erasmus and Nordplus programmes and throught state bilateral agreements.

Together with 9 other world-leading research universities, the University of Copenhagen has formed the International Alliance of Resarch Universities, IARU.
