Academic Culture

The program is made up of three weeks of classes with an intensive orientation beforehand. CIEE classes are designed to follow U.S. academic culture. Class attendance is strictly enforced both for classes and required co-curricular excursions. Each course covers a full semester of content, so the pace is accelerated, and the workload is demanding. Students should expect an average of two hours of preparation for each hour in class. To avoid falling behind, students should not plan personal travel out of Copenhagen when classes are in session.

Class Format

Courses taught at CIEE Copenhagen are for CIEE students only. Courses are taught Monday – Friday. Instruction is supported and augmented online by our learning management system, Canvas.

Grading

Assessment is based on the individual’s overall performance in the course, including essays, coursework, and final examinations or papers. Students must check with their professors to find out exam and project presentation dates. Under no circumstances will CIEE alter deadlines or exam dates for study abroad students who have made conflicting travel plans. The U.S. grading scale of A-F is used.
