DIS is a non-profit study abroad institute and classes are taught by Danish faculty in English. DIS has 23 different academic programs and over 200 electives across disciplines, which all include coursework, field studies and study tours. Founded in 1959, DIS is affiliated with approximately 200 highly selective U.S. colleges and universities. DIS has welcomed over 27,000 international students to Copenhagen. Students can chose to spend a semester, an academic year, or a summer in Copenhagen.
