The MIT-Denmark program brings MIT students, faculty and community members together with Danish innovators in the fields of life science, sustainability, technology, and more. The goal of the program is to increase the collaboration between MIT and Denmark by making connections between Danish companies, research labs, universities and talented MIT students and faculty, bringing valuable benefits to each party involved.
In addition to sending MIT students and faculty to Denmark for internships and research, the program raises awareness of Denmark within the MIT community. MIT-Denmark students participate in training on Danish culture and work-life, and events about innovation, technology or policy in Denmark are hosted for the entire MIT community. Students who participate in MIT-Denmark return to MIT's campus as ambassadors for their host institutions, as well as the country in general.
MISTI’s award-winning international internship program provides a one-of-a-kind, world-class experience for MIT students: the opportunity to gain real-life work experience in leading companies and labs around the world. Best of all, all expenses are paid, including airfare.
Denmark is internationally recognized for its leadership in industry and research in the fields of biotech, pharmaceuticals, IT, design, sustainability and more. Internships at companies, labs, startups and other organizations in Denmark are available for 10-14 weeks over the summer, or for longer periods during the semester for graduated and leave of absence students.
Global Teaching Labs
Learn through teaching. GTL challenges MIT students to synthesize and present what they know, work in a team, and communicate with peers of a different cultural background, all while sharing MIT's unique approach to science and engineering education with high school students around the world. GTLs are often thematic and offered in several country options per IAP.
Teach in Norway
While no GTL options currently exist for Denmark, you can experience Denmark’s Scandinavian neighbor Norway over IAP. In this program, MIT students teach entrepreneurship, programming and STEM subjects to high-school students in an immersive and hands-on experience.
DIS - Study Abroad in Scandinavia
Study abroad with DIS to take academically challenging courses in English and pursue a dream summer. Students can choose to study in Copenhagen, Denmark or Stockholm, Sweden with cultural and hands-on learning inside and outside the classroom.
