COVID-19 and Zealand
How is Denmark doing at the moment?
Until recently, all COVID-19 restrictions in Denmark were lifted. However, due to an increase in number of infected, new restrictions have been introduced.
Restrictions that currently apply:
- “Corona passport” at Zealand, restaurants, cafés, hairdressers, etc.
- Night clubs are closed
- Bars, restaurants and cafes are closing at midnight
- Face mask is required at: restaurants, shops, supermarket and retail, public transportation, the airport, hospitals
Furthermore, 4.5 million have been fully vaccinated (78% of the population) and 1 million even got a third shot offered.
(updated: 14th January 2022)
Keep yourself updated on the current situation with Coronavirus in Denmark here: https://en.coronasmitte.dk/rules-and-regulations
So far, Zealand has been open for physical attendance the entire semester (AUG 2021 – DEC 2021).
However, the exams have been online during January 2022. We expect that the study start in February 2022 will take place physically on campus. However, it is of course subject to change. More information will follow prior to your study start the 1st of February.
Depending on which country you are travelling from, travel restrictions can have an impact on your arrival to Denmark.
Restrictions are constantly changing depending on infection rates and new COVID-variants. Therefore, we will advise you to stay informed through following site:
- Rules and regulations for entering Denmark
- COVID-19 tests might be required before your departure/at your arrival
- Zealand recommends you to get a PCR test before your travel to Denmark regardless your journey’s start point
Moodle is the main online learning platform during your studies at Zealand. Your future courses will also have specific rooms in Moodle. Therefore, it is important that you become familiar with Moodle as soon as possible.
Information about SU, transportation, Student Counselling etc. is also available at Moodle.
The website for Moodle is: https://moodle.zealand.dk/
You should have received a text message with login details to Moodle by text message or email.
Please note, the text message will be send to the phone number you have registered in your application. If you have changed your phone number, please inform us by following mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you still haven’t received any login for Moodle, please contact the Admissions Office: email@example.com / 0045 50762830.
Hand them your name, phone number and tell them which study programme you have been accepted to.
“Welcome Zealanders” is a room at Moodle customized for you as a new student at Zealand. The aim with “Welcome Zealanders” is to prepare you for your future studies by gathering all information relevant for your study start in one place.
“Welcome Zealanders” contains information specific for your study start such as: Welcome letter, Intro programme, Study Calendar and a link to required books and equipment.
Moreover, you will be able to find information about social life and how to get settled in Denmark.
Unfortunately, Zealand has no accommodation facilities. Therefore, you have to find a place to live by yourself – but we can offer you guidance and support!
You can already sign up for waiting lists to accommodation.
Be aware! : You must contact the associations directly to be signed up manually.
You can also find accommodation through Facebook groups. Check out the presentation “Accommodation” below for links to specific groups in Roskilde and Køge.
Furthermore, Study in Denmark have a guide to accommodation in Denmark for international students. This guide is a must-read for you as a newcomer to Denmark.
It can be expensive to get settled in Denmark. You normally need to pay the first month rent + a deposit of three months’ rent as an initial payment.
The initial payment will be returned to you when you move out (with deduction for maintenance costs). The monthly rent usually range from EUR 300 – EUR 600 per person depending on location and standard.
Most students in Denmark either rent a student hall of residence (Danish = kollegium) or rent a room in a shared apartment (for instance with fellow students).
Students need a final admission letter in order to fulfil the requirements for students residence (Danish = kollegium).
We know it can be difficult to find a place to live from day 1. Our experience is that it is easier to find a place to live as soon as you arrive to Denmark. Nevertheless, hang in there!
Hotels/hostels might be a temporary solution for you until you have found a more permanent solution.
Check out the presentation “Accommodation” for more information.
Studies at Zealand/in Denmark
The Danish approach aims to involve students and encourage you to creative thinking. In general, students in Denmark can get a lot of influence, if they wish to engage in their studies.
At Zealand, we are passionate about the interaction between theory and practise. You will apply the theory you learn in lectures in the “real world” through internships and relevant cases from companies, to turn knowledge into innovative solutions.
A lot of assignments and projects are done in groups. Here, you will collaborate with fellow students in order to find the best solutions for your project.
Yes! Our Student Ambassadors Jen, Zuzanna and Lucrezia are ready to answer your questions. Please, do not hesitate to contact them – they are ready to help you.

You can talk to a student counsellor about anything that has a connection to your studies, your student life and your well-being.
You may have questions or concerns about study-related, social and/or personal issues and you are very welcome to talk to the student counsellors about any such issues.
Together, you and the student counsellor will find answers to your questions or ways forward to overcome your concerns or challenges.
The student counsellor is under an obligation to maintain confidentiality, meaning that everything that you share with the student counsellor (also by e-mail and phone) will stay between you and the student counsellor.
Moreover, the student counselling can help you apply for Special Educational Support (SPS) if you have a physical or mental disability (only for EU students). An example of SPS support measures could be IT programmes for students with dyslexia.
You can contact our student counselling by e-mail: email@example.com

Thursday to Friday from 9.00-10.00 (Danish time)
CPR-registration and residence documents
A CPR number is a personal identification. The CPR number consists of ten digits – the first six digits are your date of birth and the last four are your unique identification number.
You are legally required to have a CPR number when you are residing in Denmark for more than 3 months.
Almost all public authorities in Denmark use the CPR registry system to avoid duplicate registration and to secure a person’s identity.
You can use your CPR number in many situations. For instance:
- To open a Danish bank account
- When you are at the doctor (the yellow health insurance card)
- To get a Danish phone number
- To get a travel card for public transportation (rejsekort)
First step is to have a Residence Permit (Non EU students) or a EU Residence Certificate (EU students) in order to receive the Danish CPR number. If you are an EU-student, you can fill out the application form online for your residence documents here:
Due to COVID-19, you must book an appointment in SIRI at one of the Registration Days in order to get your residence documents. There will be Registration Days in SIRI at following dates:
*Tuesday the 25th of January: 09:00 – 16:00
Friday the 28th of January: 14:15 – 18:00
Tuesday the 1st of February: 09:00 – 16:00
You can book an appointment with SIRI in Copenhagen here:
*Representatives from Zealand will join the Registration Day in SIRI the 25th of January between 09:00 – 16:00 and we are ready to assist you (both with your visit in SIRI and with other questions and concerns).
You can apply online for your CPR number online through this link:
and get it handed by the International House in Copenhagen or book an appointment in your local municipality service (Borgerservice) when you have your residence certificate.
Be aware: You need to be registered with an address in Denmark in order to apply for the CPR number.
NON-EU students can apply for CPR number with the residence permit document from SIRI.
NB! You shouldn’t hand out your CPR number to everyone.
Student WIKI and guide for new students
There are lot of new things to learn and adapt to as a new student in Denmark.
Our student ambassadors Jen, Lucrezia and Zuzanna have created a guide and a “Student Wiki” to you as a newcomer.
You can find the guide and a link to the Student WIKI here.
