While Denmark is a small country, it has a robust agriculture sector. Internships in this field are apt for students who already have some experience or are starting out in this field. Agriculture internships not just about growing food but also focus on animal husbandry.
Danish farms are typically family-owned, with 2 to 10 employees, and quite large. The work culture is very informal, and the Danish way of working is often in a team.
Living in Denmark
Internships in Denmark also allow interns to experience life in a Nordic country that is constantly thriving! Hundreds of foreign students come to Denmark to conduct their internships. Therefore, Danish farmers are used to it and are well organized, ready to teach and provide for them.
Officially approved Danish internships farms.
The farms of internships are approved to host interns by Jordbrugets Uddannelser. The place of internships is qualified to receive and train an intern.
Residence and work in Denmark
The rules regarding residence and work in Denmark are administered by the Danish Immigration Service and The Danish Agency for International Recruitment and Integration (SIRI) under the Ministry of Immigration and Integration.

Good to know
- Although we have a very high success rate organizing placements every year, please keep in mind even if you meet the qualifications, we can not guarantee you a placement, as companies will make the final decision about your application.
- In some cases, we do not process applicant’s internship applications, because agri LIDA has none representatives in the applicant’s home country, who can help and guide you with the application process and help ensure that you have all the in-country support required and to help you make a successful application.
It’s your future, invest in it.
