Being a student is a lot more fun (and easier) with a friend. Or two. And that guy you met at the club. Or the girl you play beach volleyball with. Not to mention your study group, football team, and colleagues. But – to be honest – sometimes it takes a while to establish a network in a new city. So here are our best tips for meeting new people in Horsens.
Platform K stands for culture, creativity, coffee, concerts, love, and edge (all of which begin with the letter K in Danish). “Come and join us” also begins with a K, and this is YOUR place too. Platform K is the place to get together for concerts, events, talks, rehearsals, workshops, conversations in the café, food, and new experiences. Perhaps you have an idea for an event? Perhaps you just want to be part of it all? In any case, this is a great opportunity to meet a diverse bunch of great people.

We know, we know. It can be difficult to figure out all the Danish rules, traditions, and ways of doing things. Fortunately, a couple of international students have a solution for you in the form of the Student Survival Guide.
In addition to giving your CV a boost, voluntary work is a source of networking and community. And there is plenty of opportunity to find the best way for you to make a difference. E.g. you could check out Horsens Sund By (Horsens Healthy City) where you can help refugees, children, or the environment while you make new friends in the city.
