The University, City and Region
The University of Copenhagen is the largest institution of research and education in Denmark.
Exchange at the University of Copenhagen offers more than 500 individual courses taught in English at either bachelor (BA) or master (MA) level each semester. The courses are open to Danish and international students in the faculties of Theology, Social Sciences, Law, Health Sciences, Humanities and Science. The University of Copenhagen is one of the oldest Northern European Universities, established in 1479. It is also the largest research and education establishment in Denmark.
The City of Copenhagen
Copenhagen is the capital and the largest city in Denmark with a population of over one million. It maintains its historic reputation as a bustling commercial, cultural, and administrative centre, but has not lost its old-world charm. Copenhagen is home to many fascinating artistic and archaeological museums, and hosts a number of exciting arts festivals. Transport around the city is usually done by bike, which you can buy, rent, or borrow.
The beautiful castles and countryside around the island of Zealand are within easy travel distance of Copenhagen.
