What type of program did you experience?
I was in a research group at the University of Copenhagen in the Center for Macroecology, Evolution and Climate. I worked in both the lab as well as doing quite a bit of field work.
I was able to get a lot of research and lab experience identifying insects and ants and we also did a lot of fieldwork in and around Copenhagen collecting specimens. I was able to learn a lot of different computer program systems creating maps and for collecting and analyzing data. I also met a lot of different people in all different areas of research. It was great.
How was your housing?
Housing was great, it was in a really nice area of Frederiksberg. It was just a few minutes walk from lots of shops and restaurants, close to the metro station and it was so easy to bike everywhere – the apartment qas quite cute, really quiet, and there was a little yard, and the neighborhood was really beautiful.
Would you recommend the program to another student?
Yes, for sure, I had an incredible time in Copenhagen. I’ve had the best experience here and I met so many great people and I would recommend this to anyone!
