The IT Technology AP Degree is a two-year programme taught in Viborg.
IT Technology is more than bits and bytes. Involving users in IT, management and planning requires skills in Sales, Innovation, Communication and Marketing. This programme deals with both business and technology, as well as general studies and it prepares you for two main roles: the Consultant and the Technician.
The programme is in English.
At the IT-Technology degree we mainly use electronic versions of technical books as well as hand-outs etc.
The fun bit...
"Fredagsbar" is the Danish term for Friday afternoon party time, organised by students for students.
DSR (The Student Council) organises also parties, events and have influence on the student life at Dania Viborg. The council members are all students and they are the "voice" of the students.
Parties are normally held around Christmas time and before the summer break, when we need to enjoy ourselves after a hard-working semester. Moreover Dania organises a student trip at the beginning of your first semester.
What we expect of you..
The first real examinations are at the end of the 2nd semester, but we do construct some trial exams so the students know what to expect later on. There are also exams at the end of 3rd and 4th semesters.
During your AP Degree you must complete four projects, and the 4th project is your final one. This is often based on a case from your internship company and this project you must defend at an oral examination. Hereafter you can title yourself IT Technologist AP.
”I have gained a huge amount of knowledge not only in my education but as a person. The teachers are experts in their field and the material is very fresh and up-to-date which is relevant in IT”
Mantas Zinkevicius, IT-Technology student
The teaching methods are a combination of class teaching, projects, case studies, external teachers from businesses or other educational institutions, as well as excursions to local businesses. We pay great attention to bring practical experiences into our teaching.
Dania offers you passionate teachers, whom you always can approach for a chat or help, whether it regards your studies or it is of a more personal matter.
At first your studies can seem overwhelming and lots will be different from your high school studies. There will be many new things to relate to and many new people, both teachers and fellow students. Here you will learn to structure and prioritize your time, and as it is a full-time education we expect you to work thoroughly with each subject.

Internship - Denmark or abroad?
Dania has a good and solid cooperation with businesses both locally and globally.
This means that all our students have the opportunity to complete a valuable internship either in Denmark or abroad. Our goal is that you develop as a student and are able to work and contribute actively to a business.
We recommend that you find your own placement but we will help and support you both before, during and afterwards.
The Business Academy Dania offers ERASMUS exchange programmes, which enables you to study abroad including financial support for a semester. We have f.ex. partner universities in the UK, France, Hungary and Poland.
You must have passed your first year of study before you can apply to the ERASMUS scheme. When you know which partner university you wish to study at, you contact your head of study to make sure that the chosen courses are approved by the Academy. Because your degree is short it is essential that there is a close match between your degree and the subjects you wish to study abroad.
Dania then will nominate you as an ERASMUS student and will ask your lecturers if they think you can benefit from this semester abroad, your general study activity and consider if you will be a good ambassador for Dania. You must also pass your first year with a minimum grade 7 (the Danish Grading scale) in order to qualify.
Our ERASMUS coordinators are always available to help you if this has your interest.
As a key part of the educational programme you will complete a three-month internship during the 4th semester. This can take place in Denmark or abroad.
An internship will give you valuable practical insight and teach you to apply other working methods in solving specific work tasks. Furthermore you will gain a relevant insight into a company´requirements and expectations. The internship may also be the basis for your final project.
