Denmark info also pointed out that of the total number of international students, three out of four expressed satisfaction over their stay in the country. This positive experience has even led them to claim that they would highly recommend Denmark land to other people who want to study abroad.

Minister Helge Sander is happy about the results saying being able to attract students, researchers, teachers and even employees from other countries to Danish universities and organizations has contributed greatly to the development of Denmark land.
