Study in Denmark! – Automotive Technology – Dania Academy of Higher Education(Dania Viborg)


hello and welcome to the 2015 automotive technology live presentation from vevo Denmark with us here today we are having Neil spoon and Mike Michael Neilson we’re going to tell us a little bit more about this ap degree program of two years and more interesting stuff that you can find here about Denmark and all the things so welcome everybody um as I mentioned Michael I am the one who will like you so what now good we’re going to see a little movie about our story today we’re going to talk about the automotive technology that we offer here in campus people Dania Danish Academy of higher education and after that we’ll go more detail into the study and the conditions we offer around and next to me is the one responsible for education that is a little spoon yes hello I’m program manager for the automotive technology program and after Michael have give you information about the education I will go in details with the technical stuff and you can ask them some questions about yes so basically basically we’re talking about a two-year education that’s a so-called AP degree academic program degree it’s only two years and actually only three semesters at school you can say it’s about three two thirds of a Bachelor education but you still have after the education the possibility or selling up to a Bachelor I’ll revert to this item later on but three semesters at school and one semester where you spend three months at least certain weeks in a placement working Ireland Denmark or abroad in a company really dealing with automotive technology because this education we’re talking about is very practically oriented and it piece of course in your placement in the force semester but I think it’s now time to give this to see this introductory moving made by to our students and we are back with Niels and Michael yes welcome back I hope you found it interesting because it is an interesting study a study that you will not find in many places on the planet because many places you have education pointing at how to design cars car engineering but car technology as a higher education is found very rarely around and it gives you a lot of good job possibilities but just I want to start with some practicalities about studying here we are now in a province city we are not in Copenhagen and not knows but in a provincial city called V board just in the middle of the peninsula of Jutland and this city is quite peaceful of course but still vibrant we have quite many students in the city and what is very important is also apart from being a nice city historical city that we offer some very good opportunities for young people to come here study first of all this and guarantee all incoming students that you get accommodation here and accommodations here you’ll normally find much achievable and in the big cities living cost living expenses in general are less than in the big cities actually we have students living here from 300 to 600 euros a month inclusive of accommodation and that’s not that frightening as you should sing considering that Denmark is known as a very expensive country furthermore I would say that we are one of the very few institutions who actually take care of our students before they come because when you get admitted with us we will find a room that suits you as to prize and as to where it placed in the town most of our rooms are just across the street in the dorms so that’s about 50 metres away from the school buildings so it’s actually very very near you could go a little further away you can find even cheaper or what Unity’s but nice rooms with bathrooms mini kitchen and big kitchens where can fulfill all your demands and still live a life together with students but we sent all our admitted students a little a possible accommodation and then you can choose among it and when you arrive in town one of us representatives from Dania will be there with the keys you know hand leading you to your new home so actually that’s a sign of what is really our policy being in the province we are the institution the Dana institution that takes really care of you from before you come and during all your study time actually we have an international office open two days a week we help you with a lot of things during your study so you will actually not be a number with us you’d be a person that everyone knows the class you’ll be in will probably have between twenty and thirty students the whole institution will have about 250 students altogether and then we see a roof with will be a university college so we have a lot of common facilities you’ll find a lot of young people and this campus as to the facilities we can mention that in this pillar very building you’ll find a canteen where you can get a hot meal every day from around three and a half year OHS and they have a new menu every day so you don’t need to cook at home you can operate at home also you’ll find in this premises a big sport room the building is home for students 24/7 so you can actually go and play ball in the sport room or whatever you like to with your friends 24/7 next to the building you’ll find our student house with a bar open for students every day a lot of facilities where you can party well you can prepare yourself wave and play the music you like so we offer a lot of modern facilities for students at this place so it’s it’s in many ways a very attractive place to be in a city with 45,000 inhabitants 100,000 in the community makes it it’s not too big you’ll not be an anonymous person in this place so it’s good to know and of course but you maybe saw in the pictures and little moves before the facilities we have to offer from a technical point of view they are superb that’s one of the best facilities you will find in Denmark actually we educate mechanics from all over the country when a new car is introduced to the market they can learn how it works so we need to have the newest equipment and being a student with us you will enjoy working in this surroundings these are very very special but that’s something we can talk more about when we go into the details of the study and I think that will let your business that could be my business and we can start now if we talk about this program we have two main subjects it’s the technical part and we have the business-related part if we talk about looking into the technical part we have a lot of learning about vehicles on the streets new vehicles and we look after the system the vehicles we work with outstanding at the system we bought the diagnostic troubleshooting and it’s the whole vehicle its engine engine management its ite analyzer diagnostic its safety and CRS systems it’s the whole body gearboxes and transmissions etc there’s a lot of possibilities that’s necessary to have a deep notice about this technical stuff because part of the students who have done this work work after what was in the workshop will be nothing troubleshooting at modern car and it’s necessary will really deep knowledge and we for example we offer you each week one extra day where you have the possibility to go to train in the workshop on at your own you can continue work with tasks from the classes the old final or main part of this program is their business related parts here we talk about management we talk about economy we talk about marketing we talk about loss of communication quality and the reason that you will need to know something about all this areas is if you will go for a key position in modern until the dealership it’s necessary to know something about business and if you make a combination about this business related stuff and the technical part you really have two possibility to be a a key worker in big that’s the program and that’s the main thing and after this we have the possibility to offer you some some topics about innovation it intrapreneurship that means you have possibility to make your business plan if you have some dreams plans to start at your your own if when you have graduated from the to Case No maybe after a couple of year when you have some work experience as Michael mentioned earlier in the fourth semester you have to go to an internship we have the possibility to offer you an internship here in Denmark it could be abroad and can be but we are located in the middle of the country and in in our city or in the area but we have around our city we have aides youths a company who work will export to the automotive area so they’ll give you a great opportunity to work in a Danish company get relays maybe to to your own home country and of course you have the possibility to take the internship all worldwide it could be wherever you you’ll live if you have a company there and you will bring your things education you can you have possibility to make a contract with a local company and do your internship at home that’s up to you of course we will support you and I advise you in the process I think it’s I can add that although we are a relatively small campus you’ll actually end up in a very international environment year last year I took students in from 15 different nations so you really find people from all over the world from the Far East from Middle East but especially from Europe some from South America some from us and even from Australia so around the world so you can have a lot of international experience you in a small place like people some of our ad audience is asking what is the usual average time of response between the application and the approval of your application by the Academy as far as it go as fast as it goes right now we are taking students every day I’m doing interviews on skype mostly with applicants and I’m taking about 8 to 10 in every day now so but we definitely expect a couple weeks a couple of weeks now it is but if you go in and apply the normal way you’ll find out that the system will tell you it’s too late it’s not we keep taking as long as we have free study places so good to know for everybody is that if you want to apply just apply because we as long as we have free study places you’ll be taken in consideration in your application will be evaluated also we encourage you to take advantage of our life chat and ask whatever question you may have regarding all the aspects that you’d like to find out from our professionals here on spots any questions out there somebody is asking if they already have a degree if they can still apply the Dania yeah no problem so the answer is yes and I forgot to say that the education is for free for all member all people coming from the European Union thank you I think it’s a good time for us to watch the short video to describe more about the life here in Dania and in people and let me say it’s it’s we deal with a lot of snow and the winters in v-ball are normally not like that few weeks with snow in there for welcome you are now in the the Danes Academy when you apply and we take care of you upon arrival and we take care of you every subjects your education the social life we took care of you as a person you’ll meet a friendly and very close atmosphere between students and teachers the environment is really nice especially the relation with teachers I was really impressed that the students and teachers like there’s no this level of higher fee here you can approach them with a in the classroom it makes difference for me because it’s easier for me to the subject at dania there the student is in the center if there’s any complaints or anything like that the teachers here are not afraid of criticism because the teachers will take this feedback and try to work on their problems and the communication is really important in this being a teacher it’s very interesting to work with many different nationalities we have a lot of international students so we have a great international being in an international class is sometimes a challenge but it’s also a good experience because as an international student know that the city board has some very big ambitions about being one of the most international cities in the world so you must know that you are doing a lot of things for you to make it good to be an international student in this town we have lots of project works and where we have to work in groups it’s like a real-life situation where we have to work with different people together to have a project done at the IT technology we also do a lot of practical work each semester project with students work in cooperation with company and in the school we have a lot of things we can do besides the studies world we can just rest our heads but you can also sit down with your friends in any of the resting areas at the campus and relax from the studies Athenians also there’s a student house mister Uddin house is a place where the students have events meetings and parties also an oosik practice your music physical room wave and exercise it’s not only for the students they know but for all the students the dogs were really so they’re really close the university just and the door is close to the stadium close to the University go to the center and if you’re lucky you’ll get the room in the dorm from where you can see also even the football match on the stadium without paying the ticket it’s nice the people is a small city about 45,000 inhabitants it’s a very old city you’ll find a lot of more sweets a lot of small houses if you like sports we both also has a lot to offer we have a very famous or clubs and a lot of gyms it was surprising to see how many people are using bikes here the cycling culture in the board is very developed so it’s convenient to own a bike and it’s worth mentioning that you can get a good used bike for a small amount although Bebo is not the biggest city it will still allow you to do your shopping whenever you need anything you can practically get it without one more thing I really like about the Borg is that there’s lots of beautiful nature around and by the center they are two beautiful lakes where the traffic is going through them it’s a really nice view it’s really nice to be here it’s something special to study in this university I feel different this is a really practical and great education welcome back now even we’ve just seen the video from how life is here and how things are going with the study and everything we have two more questions for our guests here just to remind we are with Michael Nielsen and Neos hood but of them teachers and coordinators and managers from Daniel Africa sorry Academy for higher education the first question is if in case somebody is rejected are they going to receive a rejection letter so they have some coverage well going to be told that they have not been rejected that could because there were too bad language skills for instance or that they do not fulfill the demands made by the Danish Ministry of Education or simply whether too many students that could happen as well but we have reached that point yet okay and the second question is how is the interview like to explain that in a good way I think I was a little bit about the Danish hierarchy and environment being at this institution because all teachers are close by their first name and you so there’s a very free tone between teachers and students and you’ll find that that tone that melody again in the interview let me put it that way lesson where we don’t laugh is a boring lesson in Denmark and you’ll find a picture made a kind of mirror of that attitude during the interview it would be quite relaxing we’ll talk about the weather what you’ve been doing to life and what is important for me in the interview is of course to know about your motivation you are a educational background or already had your paper so I know it about I know about it but I wasn’t need to know if you have the fundings to go here if you have some parents to help you at least for the first period of time until you maybe get a job and also about the cultural differences being with us because it’s a bit different in Denmark we are just not lecturing but we are trying to involve all students in the classroom in class discussion we want access to the students who want to take part in an active discussion based teaching and also being part of group works and joy and project words and all that so it’s maybe a bit different from what you know but and a very free atmosphere and exactly in that atmosphere the interviews will take place so actually we laugh during the interviews we it’s quite relaxing but I found out what I need to know but don’t be afraid of it I hope this was satisfied I think it was more than satisfying we have another question here somebody is asking if they do not have the secondary education which means the high school yet finished meaning there are yet an 11th grade for example or they have one more year to go is there any chance that they could apply to this Academy actually quite a big percentage our applicants do not haven’t passed their secondary education yet so they’re conditionally admitted that means that they’ll simply have to bring or to scan to send the final certificate when your other ran out that far and in almost all cases we get the paper it’s very very seldom that people do not pass it happens to the eight years nine years I’ve been working with admissions once or twice that’s it so they couldn’t come because they didn’t pass it but that’s one other several hundreds so it’s normally not the case but we take a lot in without them having passed their final exam yet they’ll simply have to bring it when they get that hand it’s a no problem okay understand so actually they can apply before they finish their secondary education back in their home countries yeah also there is somebody I was asking here what is the average requirements for the final exams does it matter I mean doesn’t differ from country to country especially from Romania somebody’s asking an average degree that they are eligible to pass as to as to this education there are two approaches one the most common one actually is that you come with a secondary high school exam and you need to have had English and mathematics or economics for around 250 lessons during the three last years of your high school but I know Henry talking about a technical education so instead of having a high school exam it’s also possible to come with a vocational technical background and be admitted on behalf of that one so both possibilities both accesses are open so it’s not so much about the actual final degree greater we don’t do it weights not very much I think in name just this it will be important to mention but with this year of a short introduction course two weeks for example that one of the week could be technical month hmm that means if you have forgotten something a low grades you have the possibility to upgrade yourself before our status so that would be our recommendation that you sign up for many more option weeks I can I cannot hear that today I had a conversation and interview with a girl who passed his high school her high school ten years ago and she was quite happy for getting this course two weeks before study start so she could refresh some time on mathematics thank you very much the moment it seems like we have no other questions so just in case I think they can all the time consult the website a Dania doc DK to find more about the programs yeah also we are going to send you an email with all the materials used in this presentation the videos and other additional stuff to help you out so thank you for your attendance thank you Niels and Michael for your being here and offering us the presentation hope to see you soon in Skype yeah and of course here sorry one more question just came through right now yeah somebody is asking if FC certificate is needed and if the a grade it’s acceptable and consider does being passed FC certificate I’m lost med 1 FC it’s an English certificate I think it’s Cambridge oh yeah we prefer of course application with English test but actually we at this institution value more the Skype interview because then it gives a clear answer can this person really understand and communicate in English and and I think he gives a better good answer but we actually prefer English test but it’s not mandatory very much and now with this being said we thank you for your attendance here at the 2015 automotive technology presentation for the AP degree that Dania Academy of higher education from vapor office and hopefully we are going to see some applications for you thank you very much and have a nice day
