About the Program

Students taking part in the June session can also consider participating in the DTU Green Challenge, a 2-day student conference and sustainability project competition for a chance to win valuable cash prizes. For more information, please visit this page.

Final program details will be published by the partner institution that manages this program and are generally updated on their program webpage. However, you must apply through Go Global to be considered for this program and ensure you follow the appropriate transfer credit process.
