Description

The University of Copenhagen was founded in 1479, and was made up of four faculties: Theology, Law, Medicine and Philosophy. It is the oldest university in Denmark and the second-oldest in Scandinavia. It is also the largest higher education institution in Denmark. The university has gone through many changes over the years: initially it was an academic republic with its own laws and courts, and it maintained this status until 1771, finally losing its “professional power” in the 1960s.  Today the University of Copenhagen has about 100 departments and research facilities and six faculties – Health and Medical Sciences, Humanities, Law, Science,  Social Sciences and Theology – which offer more than 200 programmes at bachelor’s, master’s and postgraduate degree levels. Many courses are also provided in English. The university employs more than 5,000 academic staff, about 80 per cent of whom are research staff. In 2015, the university had more than 4,500 subsidy-financed research projects. The university consists of four main campuses, three of which – North Campus, City Campus and South Campus – are in Copenhagen, with Fredericksburg campus, where the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences are located, being in nearby Fredericksburg.  Nine researchers associated with the University of Copenhagen have been awarded Nobel Prizes, including Niels Bohr, who was awarded the the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922 for his work on the structure of atoms. Other notable alumni include Tycho Brahe, who made the first scientific documentation of supernovas, and the philosopher Kierkegaard.

I'd highly recommend University of Copenhagen to a new student looking to study abroad in a highly competent environment. I was enrolled to my MSc program back in 2011 and graduated in 2013 and studied Food Science and Technology with a 'General' specialization. I studied in the university's faculty in Frederiksberg. I found the program very well-organized with a lot of diverse compulsory courses that helped me to develop even more my competences. I enjoyed having a number of different practicals where we put into practice the theory from the lectures. Some of the lectures were really fun and the tutors were highly interactive with the audience. Going and preparing for the exams was completely different to what I was used to from my home country. Most of my exams were oral and the questions were based on the overall curriculum and not specific. I had to prepare a lot though for the exams (as far as I recall). If I had to pinpoint something for improvement that would be the volume of the material we have had to study and go through. There were few courses were the material was unrealistic and the requirements quite high time-wise. All the lecture associates and tutors were very friendly and helpful though.

Copenhagen University offers various courses, going from literature to sciences. I really like the fact that the classes are small, not even 30 people in the class. So, there's a real interaction with the professors, and I feel included. There are different campuses all over the city of Copenhagen, and two I've been are just beautiful a real old architecture, but with modernity in classroom and for the material.

KU was a dream come true! The education quality, and the humbleness of the professors are remarkable! My climate change master's programme is an excellent combination of both natural and social sciences. Diversity is celebrated and accepted around all the campuses with internationals from around the globe, made my student life experience here beautiful.
