Student Expanses : Bank & Budget

Denmark is an expensive country – but the standard of living is among the highest in the world. However, if you are sensible and follow local habits and economize – such as cycling to university and eating at home – life in Denmark shouldn’t blow your budget.

Opening a bank account

All international students are advised to open a Danish bank account. To do so, you must first obtain a Danish CPR number (i.e. ID number). When choosing a bank, we suggest that you ask your fellow students for recommendations. Opening an account is simple. Just bring your passport or ID card and CPR card to a branch.

You will need to bring enough money or a credit card for the first few weeks of your stay in Denmark. For example, you will need enough cash to pay the rent and deposit on your accommodation – as well as to buy house wares for your new room. Make sure you can use your credit card in Denmark. Check your cash withdrawal limit. You can also transfer money from your Danish account to your home account.

Cost of living

In terms of living expenses then these will depend on your lifestyle and habits. But to give you an idea of average monthly expenses here is a rough budget :

TYPE APPROXIMATE COST OF LIVING PER MONTH
Rent Varies from 2,500 - 4,000 DKK (utilities are usually included)
Insurance Approximately 200 DKK
TV licence 100 DKK
Books and supplies 150 DKK
Mobile phone 150 DKK (internet, around 250 DKK, may be included in your rent)
Food 1,500-2,000 DKK
Transport 300 DKK
Other personal expenses 1,000 DKK

  • Cinema ticket: 80 DKK
  • Dining out: 200 DKK
  • Nightclub entrance: 0 – 100 DKK
  • Beer or a soft drink at a bar/café: 30 – 50 DKK
  • Beer or a soft drink from the supermarket: 5 – 15 DKK
  • Coffee at a café: 25 – 40 DKK

The Danish currency

The Danish currency is called kroner (DKK)

  • 1 krone is divided into 100 øre
  • 1 Krone is approximately 10.40 INR
  • 1 euro is approximately 7.5 kroner
  • 1 US dollar is approximately 6 kroner
  • 1 UK pound sterling is approximately 9.5 kroner

Learn Danish for free

Most Danes speak English quite well. Nevertheless, being able to speak some Danish will benefit you both socially and if you want to look for a job

As an international student or employee in Denmark you can take Danish language lessons free of charge. To sign up you need a Danish CPR number (i.e. ID number).

The language courses are offered by a network of private and public language centers. You can choose between day or evening courses, which are concluded with a state-approved test in line with the Common European Framework for Languages.

Online Danish courses

If you have a Danish CPR number, free Danish courses are often available as an online activity at language school. Courses are targeted at both beginners and those who already have some knowledge of the Danish language. Students can use them to reach a good level of Danish proficiency or as a supplement to ongoing language education.

Working in Denmark

Many students in Denmark hold a part-time job. As an international student in Denmark you too will have the right to work while you live here. You will also have the opportunity to seek full-time employment when you have completed your studies

Non-EU/EEA/Swiss citizens may work in Denmark for up to 15 hours a week and full-time during June, July and August.

Student jobs

Finding a student job in Denmark is not always easy if you don’t speak Danish. However, bars, restaurants and workplaces that require special foreign language skills are good places to look for one.

Some international students find employment in bars or restaurants. Others distribute newspapers, work in telemarketing or get jobs where specific foreign language skills are required. Some students are lucky enough to find employment relevant to their studies.

Where to search for student jobs

Some academic institutions have online job banks or career centers that can assist you in finding a student job. Please enquire at your host institution. In addition, the official Danish website for international recruitment www.workindenmark.dk offers information on how to find a relevant student job, how to write an application, what to do in a job interview, etc. The site also has a job and CV bank.
