University description (as per official university website)

With over 37,000 students and more than 7,000 employees, the University of Copenhagen is the largest institution of research and education in Denmark. The purpose of the University – to quote the University Statute – is to ’conduct research and provide further education to the highest academic level’.

Approximately one hundred different institutes, departments, laboratories, centres, museums, etc., form the nucleus of the University, where professors, lecturers and other academic staff, as well as most of the technical and administrative personnel, carry out their daily work, and where teaching takes place.

These activities take place in various environments ranging from the plant world of the Botanical Gardens, through high-technology laboratories and auditoriums, to the historic buildings and lecture rooms of Frue Plads and other locations.

On 1 January 2007, the University merged with The Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University and The Danish University of Pharmaceutical Sciences. The two universities are now faculties at the University of Copenhagen.

Vision

The University of Copenhagen aims at developing and strengthening the position as one of the leading universities in Europe. It is the vision of the University of Copenhagen to:

maintain a high quality in research and education in order to consolidate and improve its position among the best universities in Europe,

secure and develop the diversity of academic fields of the University within education and research, and, at the same time, support potential and growing as well as established and most promising groups within research and education,

develop the interaction and exchange of knowledge with private and public companies, but still protect the independence and quality of research,

strengthen its position as a university focusing on internationalization without failing the national responsibilities.

The University of Copenhagen is unique in many ways. The size of the University is ideal for strategic endeavors focusing on specific areas without draining funding from all other subject areas.

Research is of high quality, and the strength of the university makes it realistic to establish internationally competitive focus areas and to expand its net of partner institutions.

In addition, the academic diversity and the experiences with regional and international cooperation form a basis for the creation of new and necessary multi-disciplinary areas within research and education.

Last, but not least, the geographical position of University of Copenhagen as a capital university and member of the Oresund University offers opportunities to attract excellent researchers and students and to work together with a wide range of private and public companies and institutions.

The motivational force of the University's research activities is financially and politically independent, i.e. free basic research; however, specific collaborative endeavours with other institutions and companies also have a place among the countless research activities. The dissemination of knowledge and findings to other research environments and the general public is a natural element of the University's research efforts.

The diversity of academic environments and scientific approaches is the University of Copenhagen's distinguishing feature and strength. Within the shared framework, the University is divided into eight academic fields referred to as faculties. The faculties are further divided into departments and institutes acting as the primary workplace for the University's researchers. The University is also home to a number of centres, interdisciplinary projects and other units typically focusing their work on research in more specific academic areas.

A merger with The Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University and The Danish University of Pharmaceutical Sciences has led to the formation of one of the largest Health and Life Science centres in Northern Europe consisting of four of the University's faculties: the Faculty of Health Sciences, the Faculty of Life Sciences, the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the Faculty of Science.

International research collaboration
The University of Copenhagen is a member of IARU (International Alliance of Research Universities). The alliance consists of ten universities worldwide: Australian National University, ETH Zürich, National University of Singapore, Peking University, University of California, Berkeley, University of Cambridge, University of Copenhagen, University of Oxford, The University of Tokyo, and Yale University.

Regional research collaboration
The University of Copenhagen represents a cornerstone in the regional educational and research collaboration in the Øresund Region. The Øresund University partnership involves 14 universities in eastern Denmark and southern Sweden and provide researchers and students alike with improved access to expertise on both sides of the Sound. The Øresund Science Region forms an umbrella for research co-operation and operates through six research and innovation platforms integrating universities, industries and the public sector.

The Øresund regional collaboration forms the largest concentration of higher research and educational programmes in Scandinavia and one of the most significant strongholds for knowledge in Europe.

Education at the University of Copenhagen

The University of Copenhagen is the largest educational institution in Denmark. Together, the eight faculties offer over 200 programmes for study in health sciences, humanities, law, life sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, science, social sciences, and theology.

The University aims to prepare students for a broad range of jobs in the private and public sectors. For this reason, education at the University covers specific skills and scientific methods as well as other more theoretical skills that will enable graduates to improve their qualifications. Teaching and research are closely integrated in order to achieve this, first and foremost by according them equal importance in the daily work of the academic and scientific staff and whenever possible basing the teaching on research.

Degrees
The University of Copenhagen offers several degrees of education in a variety of subjects. The degree structure is divided into three levels. Three years of undergraduate studies lead to a bachelor's degree, and an additional two years lead to a master's degree. Only the structures of the theological, medical and dentistry degrees differ from this model. All masters degrees obtained from the University of Copenhagen can be extended with three more years of postgraduate work leading to a PhD degree.

International students
The University of Copenhagen offers a significant number of courses in English each semester. This allows exchange students to put together a comprehensive study programme, which will meet the demands of their home institutions.
