A positive aspect about the Danish university system is that the classrooms are small and more attention is paid to the individual students. The teachers are very welcoming and complaisant towards exchange students, and were willing to change the exam dates or forms in order to accommodate us.
Most of the exams at the English Department in Odense were take-home assignments (e.g. a question was given and we had a week to answer it in a written paper). In the course of the year I spent there, I only had one written exam and it was a very strange experience. First of all, everyone had to bring their own printer and computer, and it was not allowed to share a printer, so we exchange students chose the traditional method of writing with pen on paper. Moreover, we were allowed to use all our books and notes from the class. And I even saw a girl who brought a gymnastic ball to sit on for this 4-hour exam, as we weren’t allowed to leave before the time was over. If you had to go to the toilet, someone would come with you and wait outside. But, other than that, I really enjoyed studying in Denmark.
The University has a large library, a lot of study rooms and computers for the students, which are also accessible on the weekends with your student card and a pin-code. The cafeteria offers cheap and surprisingly good food and the best cinnamon rolls that I’ve ever had in my life.
