We have asked some current Fulbrighters why they decided to study in the US. Here are their answers.

1. The perfect school

While Denmark has many great universities, the chances of finding a school in the US that specializes in your exact field of research is much higher since there are more than 4,000 universities versus 8 in Denmark.

2. The network 

For one of our current Danish Fulbrighters who is studying Security Studies at Georgetown University, getting the opportunity to study and network in Washington DC, the capital of security policy, is invaluable.

"My university is located in Washington DC, which is the capital of security policy. The network I'm able to build here is unmatched and will benefit me for the rest of my life."

3. Explore a multicultural environment

Most Fulbrighters attend classes that are a healthy mix of Americans and other foreign students. This gives you a great opportunity to learn and network with other researchers and students from all over the world.

4. Find new inspiration

It’s healthy to change your environment and learn a new perspective once in a while. While the US is a Western country like Denmark, there are many cultural differences between the countries and many things we can learn from each other. Studying for a semester or taking a full degree in the US is a great way to pull yourself out of your comfort zone and learn new perspectives.

5. The US is the land of opportunities

Studying in the US is a great way to explore the American culture while furthering your academic accomplishments. Who knows if you meet someone who wants you to work for them when you graduate?
