University of Copenhagen

With over 38,000 students and more than 9,000 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’.

The University of Copenhagen is the oldest University in Denmark - founded in 1479. The University has four campus areas in Copenhagen and consists of six faculties - Health and Medical Sciences, Humanities, Law, Science, Social Sciences and Theology - with over one hundred different departments, institutes, centres, laboratories and museums.

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 University of Copenhagen’s research-based education also enables the private and public sectors to recruit expert staff and access the latest knowledge in such diverse areas as health, food, biological production and globalisation.
