For +5 years I worked at DIS – Study Abroad in Scandinavia in different positions. What is DIS? DIS is a non-profit study abroad institution. They are based in Copenhagen and Stockholm, offering semester, academic year, and summer programs taught in English. DIS students live in different housing options, from Homestay, Kollegium, Residential Communities, Rented Room, Folkehøjskole and Living & Learning Communities.
I was employed in Housing & Student Services, where I facilitated different tasks involving Kollegium and Residential Communities. My primary tasks was to update documents from semester to semester, matching students with their housing option, ongoing innovation and management of the before mentioned housing options and different kinds of administrative tasks.
One example is, that I was responsible for a thorough internal investigation, based on quantitative and qualitative results about student behavior. The finished product impressed CEO Malene Torp, and the project is now part of DIS’s overall strategy.
