Dear student,

In this mail you will find some information about SDC, the different programmes and also studying and living in China. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us – there are only good questions! Contact information is below.

SDC (Sino-Danish Center for Education and Research) is a partnership between all eight Danish Universities and University of Chinese Academy of Science (UCAS) in Beijing. The overall aim of SDC is to promote and strengthen cooperation between Danish and Chinese learning environments, and increase the mobility of students and scholars between the two countries. SDC offers seven unique MSc programs in Beijing. All programs are 120 ECTS and when you finish you will obtain a double MSc degree – i.e. a MSc degree from the Danish University and an MSc degree from the Chinese University. All programmes qualify for the Danish state educational support (SU). To read more about the programmes Master Programmes.

All courses are taught in English by Danish and Chinese teachers/researchers. Your classmates will also be a mixture of Danish and Chinese students and in some cases also other nationalities. Professional help and service – SDC helps you both before and during your stay in Beijing with all practical matters. Before departure to Beijing we host an introduction seminar in Denmark and upon arrival in China you will have 2 whole introduction weeks before classes start. First you will have one week just with the other candidates from Denmark and then following that, a week also with all the Chinese students. We also have an office in Beijing with both Danish and Chinese staff that can help and guide you in terms of both academic and practical matters.

Living in Beijing – Beijing offers adventures of all kinds – so pack your bags and get an experience of a lifetime! Although prices in China are rising, it is still very cheap in relation to most countries in the EU. You can easily live and eat for your SU. SDC offers accommodation on campus at a very favorable price, but it is also possible to find a flat if you want. For more information on living in Beijing Living in Beijing.
