Copenhagen - University

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’.

Together, the eight faculties offer over 200 programs for study in health sciences, humanities, law, life sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, science, social sciences, and theology.

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.

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