Danish students are being asked to study overseas for a third consecutive year, after a year-long suspension in 2018.
The decision came as part of a clampdown on the number of international students entering the country.
In 2018, about 4,500 international students were studying in Denmark, a number that is expected to fall by half to 1,000 this year.
Many of those students are likely to be in the business, education, science, engineering and medicine fields.
According to Danish government statistics, about 40 percent of Danish university students study abroad.
However, as a result of the 2018 suspension, fewer students are going abroad this year than last.
Last year, there were an estimated 9,000 students studying abroad.
The 2018 study abroad suspension was in response to concerns that the number and quality of international studies in Denmark has fallen, following a sharp decline in international students in 2018, according to government statistics.
The government’s focus has been on keeping students from the Middle East and other countries out of the country, according a press release issued on December 19.
However the government has not yet said when it will resume the ban on international students studying in the country this year, and will not be doing so until the 2019 academic year.
Last month, a Danish government minister said the ban would last until 2019.
