The University of Copenhagen is the largest educational institution in Denmark. Together, the six faculties offer over 200 programs for study in health and medical sciences, humanities, law, 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 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.
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 master’s degrees obtained from the University of Copenhagen can be extended with three more years of postgraduate work leading to a Ph.D. degree.
In addition to this, the Department for Research and Impact develops new initiatives and organises events and training on various themes related to building capacity in the organisation to enhance research impact. The REVALORISE+ project is one of many ways to do this focusing on how to identify and describe the skills and needs of researchers and KT/TT professionals regarding their valorisation efforts and intentions.
