Numerous accounts of education in Denmark have been published in the United States but nearly all of them deal with rural and folk high schools and other special phases, to the neglect of the system of general training which is the basic, strong organization that forms the mainstay of Danish culture. This study of higher education in Denmark will to some extent overcome that deficiency in this information by presenting a brief general sketch of the preparation for higher studies and a detailed statement about the institutions of higher education. It is one of a series of studies which now includes similar accounts for Sweden and Norway. The purpose of this bulletin is to present to collegiate registrars, committees of admission, and State departments of public instruction, such data about the institutions of higher education in Denmark as will enable these officials and offices to form fairly accurate judgments of how higher training in Denmark compares with that in the United States. The information is intended mainly for use in connection with evaluating the credentials of students trained in Denmark who wish to continue their studies in the United States, but it should be of value also to anyone interested in higher education. Part A contains an introduction and an explanation of the purpose of this study. Part B covers the topics of preparation for higher studies, including the organization of instruction and a description of the secondary school curricula. Part C presents descriptions of the Danish institutions of university rank. A bibliography and a glossary of terms are included. (Contains 22 tables, 2 graphs, and 5 footnotes.)
