Hej alle sammen!
I've just finished first year at Aalborg university studying B/Sc in electronic and computer engineering.
I'm interested to hear from anyone else in Denmark, or anyone thinking of applying, whether at AAU or elsewhere.
Ask me anything.

things that surprised me:
-how expensive beer is in shops
-how cheap the beer gets when you bring it back across the German border
-24 hour library on a tiny campus (woot woot!)
-sympathy for/over/with brexit...
-we are all very social for engineers, given that 50% of our ECTS are in project work

better than UK
-No tuition fees actually this is going to change soon, but they will still be very cheap.
-free Danish courses (run by the kommune)
-lots of collaboration in project work

don't like:
-a lot of the laws and regulations aren't translated into english which can be a pain if you need to quote something for a project... you learn Danish quick though
-the tax system is an absolute nightmare to get your head around. you can arrange a workshop through the kommune for this though
-lack of fish and chips, as well as fried chicken :/

Hope this helps

Very good you can get 650-700g for 35 Kr. from netto when its on offer, so I grab 3-4 packs and freeze some for later... On the downside I did put on a little bit of weight this year, but nothing unhealthy.
Best served on rye bread with a tuborg classic or 3 to drink. friday dinner

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?
