Dannish Minisiters outline plans to increase international student numbers
Ministers in Denmark have outlined their vision to increase the number of international students coming to Denmark to study each year, arguing that Denmark is falling behind other countries in Europe. The ministers – science, innovation and higher education minister Morten Østergaard (Radikale), children and education minister Christine Antorini (Socialdemokraterne) and trade and investment minister Pia Olsen Dyhr (Socialistisk Folkeparti) – outlined their vision saying that Denmark needs to increase the number of vocational courses that are offered in English to students.

If their plans are pushed through, we could see more English language programs offered in Denmark over the coming years.
