Default Young woman wanting to move to Denmark

Hi everyone this is my first post!
I am 19 years old and awaiting September to begin my university studies.
One of my life intentions is to move to Denmark during my twenties, is this possible?
From what I've read, Denmark is a fantastic country in terms of its overall population happiness, socialism and equality, furthermore, the Danes are described as kind, straightforward individuals with British similarities, so I believe settling may not be too difficult. I would be eager to learn the language and culture too.
How could I obtain residence, and is that possible considering my skill set is design?

I'd be grateful for anyone's experience and/or knowledge.

As it stands, presuming you are a British citizen, you can just move to Denmark under EU/EEA Freedom of Movement rules. Post-Brexit this will likely change; by how much is currently unclear. It's unlikely to be markedly more difficult however.

If Brexit doesn't go ahead, then hopefully you will get the chance for a trial run on the Erasmus Program, with a semester spent there.

However, if Brexit does go ahead, it depends on how any deal is constructed.

At best we go for something like the Norway deal, which comes with freedom of movement for workers

At worst, you're back to being a third-country national, meaning that it's very likely that you will have to qualify for a visa to live and work there (marriage or job offer, basically) like anyone else from outside Europe. You will be competing in a job market whereby anyone from any of 26 other countries who apply for that job with the same skill set are likely to get it, as 1) they will cost the employer less to employ/no visa, and 2) to get a visa, the employer would need to show that no applicants from the EU met the job criteria.

The likelihood is to be somewhere within this range, but it will never be as good as the deal we are about to lose. possibly.
