Practical information to Global Line participants
You will be receiving a small weekly allowance while you are in Den¬mark. It will cover pocket money to buy sodas, some clothes etc. Do not expect to bring back money, as Denmark is quite expensive.
Global Line participants will share a double room with one other Global Line participant during the course. Students are responsible for cleaning their own rooms.
What to bring
- Please check with the airline how much luggage you are allowed to bring on the plane. From experience we know that students bring home more than they take out, so please take that into consideration when packing your luggage.
- There is no school uniform, and Danish students dress very casually. However, you will need sports clothes and shoes as well as a swim suit. If you do not have these items, you can buy them in Denmark.
- Denmark has a cold climate, especially when winter begins in November-December, so you will need warm clothes. You can buy second-hand warm clothes in Denmark, if you do not have any (see Appendix 9).
- Please bring information about your organisation such as: strategic plan (if the organisation has one), vision and mission statement, and annual plan. You could take the time to discuss with your organisation about a project in the pipeline, as this could serve as your project development case study on the course.
- Please bring traditional dress, songs, games, music, pictures, etc. from your country. You will be asked to arrange a cultural show and to tell about your country and your culture on something called “International Students’ Day”. It would be great if you could bring something spe¬cial to illustrate this.
- Remember to bring the disability aids that you need, such as wheel chair, crutches, Perkins Brailler, etc.
- It is your responsibility to bring the medicine you need for the whole course. You will not find the same medicine in Denmark as you are used to.
- There is no danger of malaria in Denmark, but if there is a possibility that you already have malaria, please bring the anti-malarial medicines.
- Especially for the girls: Plait your hair so it can last for 5 months. It is very expensive to have it done in Denmark. You should also bring hair products like hair pomades, relaxer and wigs.
If you use any special products or prefer what you are used to, you should bring them. Some participants even carry razors and vaseline for dry skin from home, though these items are obviously available in Denmark.
