Why learn Danish as an international student?

You never know what happens. Most students staying in Denmark had other plans to begin with. Learning Danish gives you the option to stay, if you e.g. find a job here.

If you do not start learning Danish immediately after coming to Denmark you run the risk of losing your right to free Danish classes. The program has a time limit.

It is actually fun to learn Danish. You will meet other international students, and soon you will be able to understand more of what is going on in your local community.
