Formulating and propagating unequivocal ethical guidelines for the recruitment, admission and education of international students.
The Danish government aims to attract highly qualified international students, with the purpose of improving the quality of Danish educational institutions and making them more attractive and competitive on the global educational market.
As a natural consequence of this, there has been an increased focus on the conditions allowing institutions to admit international students, aiming to create the basis for international study environments that can benefit both Danish and international students.
Concurrently with these efforts, cooperation with public institutions and private enterprise in Denmark has revealed an increasing need for the recruitment of staff with backgrounds other than Danish with a view to employment both in Denmark and in international departments and subsidiaries abroad.
The aim of the Code of Conduct is to formulate and propagate unequivocal ethical guidelines for the recruitment, admission and education of international students.
The Code of Conduct thus clarifies the educational and financial rights of international students in connection with recruitment, admission and the completion of their education.
You can find the Code of Conduct in its entirety at the website of the Ministry of Higher Education and Science.
