Fees and Finance
In general Zealand can not recommend that international students finance their education in Denmark via private or commercial loans. In general, living costs in Denmark are so high that studying in Denmark requires that students have a relatively good and sound financial background.

Zealand can never be held liable or responsible for loans, private or commercial, nor be held liable for the interests of such loan in the event that a student needs to finance parts of the tuition fee or borrow to cover living expenses.
