Cost of living

Living costs

The standard of living is high and the economy performs above the European average. Accommodation, food, transport and leisure are therefore relatively expensive in Denmark compared to many other countries. However, salaries are correspondingly high, and many services such as medical treatment and schools are paid for via taxes and the Danish welfare system, so that no user fees are charged. 

You will find more detailed information about opening a bank account, NemID and payment methods in Denmark on the right side.

The table below shows typical expenses of students living in Aarhus. The actual amount of expenses also depends on the individual lifestyle of each student.
