Hello. I came across this website - http://studyindenmark.dk
Seems interesting. Had thought of studying in Europe before but never followed up my interest. Does anyone have any experiences with Denmark?
Also I am a 29 year old mature student and my recent qualifications and references will be from OU modules. Do you think they would be open to that?
University of Copenhagen's Data Science bachelor's degree stands out as a possibility to me.
Thanks

I think you mean the IT University of Copenhagen (which is a different uni to the University of Copenhagen).

I don't have any experience with Denmark per se but if it's anything like Norway or Sweden then it might be a bit complicated, generally European universities are less flexible when it comes to non-standard entry requirements than British unis.

That's not to say it's impossible but you will need to contact the university's admission office for advice. They might be able to give you an exemption from the formal entry requirements based on your OU modules, or you might need to apply for an assessment of your foreign qualifications.

Ahh... I did not notice that. This is a very different place with only 2355 students and 50 PhD students. Will be limited in terms of what it can offer, especially as I'm interested in research. I'll give that a miss. Thanks!

The bachelor's degrees are usually taught in Danish, so you have to find somewhere to learn Danish to A-level standard to be accepted.
(Which will be hard but you can learn online perhaps?)

Otherwise, its better to apply for a Master's Degree.

If you want to do Data Science, you need to make sure you have a good Mathematics A -level and try to get some experience of Programming using udacity, codecademy, datacamp, coursera, etc... beforehand !

Look at the Entry Requirements on the University Website.

Copenhagen Uni is honestly one of the best in Europe / World, if I ever wanted to do PhD it would be one of my top places to look for PhD
