Program Overview

Experience Copenhagen at its best – during the summer, when the days are long, the festivals are full-throttle, and the harbor pools are beckoning. CIEE's Summer in Copenhagen program offers students four, eight, or twelve weeks of study abroad in English, with courses across humanities, environmental studies, design, history, and more. During this exciting summer abroad, you will soak in the Danish sun during frequent co-curricular activities designed to take learning outside of the classroom and guarantee an authentic understanding of the history and culture of the Scandinavian people. 

Build Your Summer Adventure
Select one or two six-week blocks at any CIEE Open Campus Block location. Stay in Copenhagen for both blocks or go mobile and spend your second block in Berlin, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Dublin, Kyoto, London, Madrid, Monteverde, Paris, Rome, Santiago, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, or Yucatan.
