The DIS Model
At DIS, high-quality academics and cultural engagement opportunities provide the cornerstone for a successful study abroad experience for your student. You can expect:
- Integrated learning – course-integrated study tours, field studies, practicums, and more – faculty that teach what they do connecting classroom theory with real-life, hands-on application
- Excellent student service beginning with our North American Office, which advises students prior to their departure abroad, and continuing with our on-site staff in Copenhagen and Stockholm
- Easy to access online resources, including detailed health & safety advice, procedures, and contact information
- DIS prides itself on transparent, comprehensive charges with no hidden costs! As a non-profit organization, it is DIS policy to keep the price to a minimum, while incorporating several extra benefits into the cost such as study tours, textbooks, and commuting fees
- Students build their own curriculum – with over 300 academically challenging courses to choose from between our Copenhagen and Stockholm locations, as well as semester and summer options, your students should be able to mix and match courses to meet their requirements and passions
- A variety of housing options allow your students to find his or her best fit socially and culturally
- Plenty of ways to meet the locals – from DIS-arranged activities to information on local sports groups, clubs, and religious networks that will allow your students to successfully strike out on their own and engage with the local culture!
- Easy credit transfer – DIS works in partnership with approximately 200 institutions, of which 80% are ‘most’ or ‘more selective’ institutions. DIS will advise your student based on your school’s academic requirements when they are registering for courses in order to ensure an easy credit transfer home at the end of the semester or summer
