Practical
information

Below you will find some practical information regarding your stay at Rønshoved.

Transport

From Copenhagen Airport, a metro train will take you to Copenhagen Central Station. From the central station, there will be trains going to Gråsten; the ticket price is around 400 DKK. From Gråsten, you take bus no. 110 (a 15-minute bus ride to the school).

You can also fly to Sønderborg from Copenhagen Airport. Sometimes it can actually be cheaper to fly. From Sønderborg, you take the same bus no. 110 to Rønshoved.

You can also book a taxi by requesting one by phone, +45 70 10 78 00 or +45 74 65 09 14, but be aware that Danish taxi service is extremely expensive.

Insurance

Health insurance

As an international student in Denmark, if you get a residence permit and register with the municipal registration office upon your arrival, you will be covered by the Danish national healthcare within approximately six to eight weeks.

Therefore, it is advisable to purchase an insurance policy for at least the first eight weeks of your stay when you will not yet be covered by Danish national health insurance. In addition, you may want to consider purchasing a private plan for the duration of your stay, which could provide coverage such as repatriation coverage, to cover you on the trip to and from Denmark and any other trips, and for the additional protections a private plan provides.

Theft insurance

You are advised to insure yourself privately. The school takes no responsibility for lost or stolen articles. The school has a safe where you can keep money, flight tickets, passport, and other small valuables you might bring with you.

Money and banks

Denmark has its own currency, the Krone ("Crown"). It is shortened as DKK in international money markets and "kr." in daily use.

The Krone is pegged to the Euro, so its value relative to other currencies fluctuates with that of its neighbors to the south.

ATMs

Most banks in Denmark have automated teller machines (ATMs) that give cash advances on Visa and MasterCard credit cards, as well as Cirrus and Plus bank cards. Although ATMs are accessible outside normal banking hours, not all are open 24 hours.

Typically, you’ll get a good rate when withdrawing money directly from a Danish ATM, but keep in mind that your home bank may charge you a fee for international transactions or for using another bank’s ATM – check before you leave.

You can withdraw money from the school office. We take Visa, MasterCard, and most other types of plastic cards.

Cash

The school is situated close to the German border, and many grocery stores, cafés, shops, etc., allow you to pay in Euros.

Credit cards

Credit cards such as Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted in Denmark, although don’t expect to use anything other than a Danish domestic card at supermarkets. American Express and Diners Club are also accepted, but not as often.
