DIS is a specialized Danish institution offering study abroad programs in English for primarily American university students in their third or fourth year of study, with credit transfer to their home school. Altogether, some 160 American and other universities and colleges constitute the DIS network of partner schools.

In today's globalized world, students study abroad to qualify for the international job market, enhance their majors, broaden their intellectual horizons, get to know Europe, meet the unexpected, have fun, and mature.

It is DIS' aim to meet these aspirations by offering site-specific courses and programs involving interactive and cooperative learning processes, individual and team-based research, experiential learning through course-integrated field studies and study tours, and housing with the Danes.
