Exchange students

The Department of Midwifery receives international students in the spring and autumn semester for clinical placement due to both uncomplicated- and complicated pregnancies, childbirths and postnatal periods.

We recommend that international students have completed at least the first year of their midwifery education, including a period at a delivery ward before they can apply. Exchange students should expect to communicate in English; Nordic languages can be used.

Clinical education will take place at one of our seven clinical placements at highly specialized hospitals in the North Denmark and Central Denmark Regions.

At each clinical placement we have clinical teaching midwives, who are in charge of the clinical education of both Danish and international midwifery students. Besides, we connect the international students to a buddy/student midwife.

When it comes to accommodation, we will try to help you finding a studio or something similar. Sometimes we have to refer to the private market of accommodation.

We receive exchange students from the Erasmus and Nordplus programmes as well as partner universities for short periods of clinical training.
