Our Teaching Methods

We teach in smaller class rooms, not in large auditoriums, and we constantly aim at providing an innovative, personal, interactive and varied form of teaching, where theory and practice are two halves of the same unit. We offer you that opportunity in a safe learning environment. The teaching methods are a combination of traditional teaching, project work, group studying, student class presentations, open debates, excursions, company visits and sometimes external guest teachers.

10 pieces of good advice for the new student

1. If you are not offered a study group, find one yourself. Your fellow students experience the same problems as you and dialogue is important for gaining knowledge of the level and academic challenges of each class.

2. Plan and prepare for your classes. Read the study programme, the teacher´s semester plan and examination regulative thoroughly and make a basic time schedule to follow. Structure your time!

3. Take it easy! You will not have a perfect view on things at first, but that is perfectly normal. The feeling of chaos is quite natural at first. It is not until after one or two semesters you start to see how the classes are connected and everything falls into place.

4. You are now a student of higher education. This means that you are 100% responsible for your own learning. If you do not prepare for and participate in classes, make the suggested assignments etc. It only affects your learning outcome.

5. The first semester of the education is typically hard work with many assignments, lessons and books to be read. Hang in there and do your best, and with time it will be easier to cope with.

6. The physical surroundings are important for your ability to concentrate. Maybe the best place to study is not at home but in an empty room at the academy or with your study group.

7. Remember that you never start from scratch. You always have relevant knowledge from your previous schools, your work, family etc. Make use of this and use it in class. Focus all your attention on your studies (in the first semester), minimize or avoid working alongside. First semester is where you create the foundation for the following semesters.

9. Give new knowledge a chance! The level of interest in a certain course is often connected to the level of knowledge. A course that initially seems unintresting can be exciting when you get into it. If you start considering changing to another course, then talk to your teachers, the Head of education, student counselling, friends from class etc., so if you make the decision to stop it is a wellconsidered decision.

10. Take all the help you can get. Participate in courses about study techniques and read books about it. Exchange experiences with your fellow students and teachers on how best to plan the process of studying.

 

"Taking my education at Dania is one of the best choices I´ve made.  The way we are thought is completely different from the country I am coming from. Practice based classes, teamwork and intercultural experiences are the main differences. However, they give a great preparation for future professional activity. This implies writing projects and working with real businesses during the whole period of study. This makes a sense of how things go on a daily basis within a company and howthey affect the external operations of it. Everything is interconnected!’’

Iuliana, Marketing Management student.

 

''The education at Dania is more practice oriented, unlike the education in Kenya which is more focused on theory. Basically, this study program gives you a chance to evolve and to reach a certain level of knowledge which allows you to continue your education and to have access to a great career. The international environment is great as well. Also, my personal needs are taken care of - I am not a number, I am an individual!’’

Dorcas, Marketing Management student.

 

''During this education I worked with market research in real companies under the direct supervision of the teachers who offered me guidance in order to achieve valuable experience in the Marketing Management field. Basically I can perform tasks in many business fields and I believe my knowledge can create value for a company.’’

Ligia, Marketing Management student.

 

''During my education at Dania I gained many skills in marketing, logistics, communication, organisation and many more subjects that are relevant to the marketing sector. In my studies I managed to become more creative and open-minded, I acquired the ability to work both individually and in groups.’’

Maybe, Marketing Management student.

 
 
 

Historic yet modern...

Viborg is one of Denmark's oldest cities with traces back to ancient times. Until 1660, all Danish kings where hailed in Viborg, and noble gentlemen and Catholic bishops adorned the city with beautiful and prestigious buildings, including the characteristic cathedral with two towers.

Viborg is today still a lively market town with all that it entails. Viborg Municipality has it all, a myriad of specialty shops, chain stores and department stores. In addition, good cafes, restaurants and night-active nightlife with theater, cinema and several discos and bars.

The nature in Viborg Municipality is unique, and one of the greatest strengths of the area. You experience it anywhere else example is Dollerup Hills is a great place for hiking and picnic trips.

Housing & Jobs

The municipality of Viborg guarantees all new students a place to live.

Housing
Due to the increasing number of international students new dormitories have been built. The largest dormitories are on the campus next to the Campus Viborg building, so most students have only 2-3 minutes to the academy.

The price in Camp Logos range from 1930 to 4230 DKK per month. This price includes heating, TV, internet connection, and water. Some of the rooms are with two separate rooms. The rooms are fully furnished, however, you need to bring or to buy your own bed equipment (duvets, pillows, linen).

The above prices are valid as at 1 January 2015. Approximate exchange rate as the same date: 1 € = 7.45 DKK). It is also possible to find rooms and apartments in town, where more students can share the rent.


Jobs
Together with the municipality of Viborg and the local Chamber of Business and Industry, the Academy developed a concept for helping international students to find spare time jobs. Within the first 4 months 50 % of the students of the first international class had a spare time job, and the experiences so far are very promising.
