2. Partners can join Meet2Talk.

Meet2Talk is relevant for all employees and spouses/partners who are living in a foreign country, if you are about to move abroad or if you want to help others by sharing your own valuable local knowledge. Meet2Talk is a purpose-built, safe and ad-free environment for internationals sharing the same challenges. We advise that you use this platform to share your knowledge and receive helpful advice from others.

As of 2020, Partners, who wish to improve their qualifications during the posting, have the opportunity to apply to the MFA’s HR Department (hrcompetence@um.dk) for a grant of around DKK 10,000-50,000.
