Estimated living costs per month

Living in Denmark info

The standard of living is high and the economy performs above the European average. Accommodation, food, transport and leisure are therefore relatively expensive in Denmark compared to many other countries. However, salaries are correspondingly high, and many services such as medical treatment and schools are paid for via taxes and the Danish welfare system, so that no user fees are charged. 

Sample Prices


Housing: 350 - 600 Euro
Meals: 200 Euro
Books and local transportation:100 Euro
Estimated total cost per month: 650 to 900 Euro

Health Insurance:

Students staying for more than 3 months are covered by Danish Health Insurance after having received a CPR-number. (application upon arrival – See Useful Links for information)
Students staying less than 3 months must obtain private health insurance before arriving in Denmark.
