Living in Copenhagen

The Royal Danish Academy of Music is located in Frederiksberg, which is part of the Capital Region of Denmark.

Copenhagen has been deemed one of the most liveable cities in both Europe and the world. This is, amongst others, due to its rich cultural life, safety, public healthcare and well-functioning infrastructure.


Danes are known for a high-level proficiency in English. Although, the official language in Denmark is Danish, a majority of the population speaks English. We do, however, recommend international students to learn some Danish while studying in Denmark. Currently, international students at RDAM are offered free Danish lessons in order to obtain an everyday command of Danish.
