About UVU

UVU- Foreigner Guides Foreigner is a project that aims to provide voluntary guidance to newcomers to Denmark, immigrants, and Danes from varying ethnic backgrounds who wish to familiarize themselves with the various educational opportunities available to them in order to enroll in higher education. The guidance is conducted by volunteer counselors who are either currently or recently graduated university students and who represent a multitude of nationalities, and a variety of ethnic backgrounds.

Receiving counseling from someone who shares one’s background has many advantages, including the ability of the counselor to convey their experiences of undergoing educations in Denmark as well as the challenges they have faced along the way. Additionally, counsel-seekers can often have questions of a more cultural nature, as a result of ethnic differences, which our counselors are well-equipped to assist with.

This is what sets UVU apart from other study-guidance organizations, as UVU does not only provide counseling on educational programs, but our counselors are also able to understand any related cultural questions that counsel-seekers may have.

Would you like to know more about a specific program? Are you in doubt in regards to which education you should choose? Then you have a great opportunity to learn more if you contact one of UVU 's counselors.
