At University College Copenhagen (KP) we offer courses in English from a unique Nordic perspective, at our state of the art campuses in the Greater Copenhagen area; a place known for its high quality of life, ”hygge”, contemporary design, bicycle culture, and vibrant cultural scene.

KP is an abbreviation for Københavns Professionshøjskole – our Danish name. Our academic programmes represent an excellent opportunity to become acquainted with the famous Scandinavian welfare model. At the same time, the student-oriented learning methods will help you develop your critical and analytical skills, and improve your capacity for academic reflection.

During your stay, the International Department will provide you with practical support, and regularly organise social and cultural events. This offers you the opportunity to get acquainted with Danish culture and habits, and meet Danish, as well as international, students.

The KP way of studying

At KP you can study at Bachelor Degree level. For more information about the Danish education system, please visit this website:

For admission and education of international students KP is committed to the Code of Conduct and ethical guidelines formulated by the Danish Ministry of Higher Education.

If you wish to study at KP, we expect you to have studied at a similar level at your home institution. We also expect you to have finished your first year before you come to KP for a study period or practice placement.

Please note: KP only offers full degree study programmes in Danish.

At KP we value independent thinking, collaboration, analytical rigour and self-expression.

The learning environment is informal and driven by the exchange of ideas. Teaching is based on a mixture of lectures and active student class participation through dialogue, questions and discussions.

The KP way of studying involves studying independently as well as attending lectures and taking part in group work with your fellow students.

Study programmes are generally supported by 10–20 hours of classes per week. As well as this, students work with cooperative learning processes, including study groups, experiments and practical investigative projects.

Placements of various kinds play an important role in the teaching and learning process in all the programmes at KP.

Placements are generally organised by KP and supervised and guided. Students are also assessed based on written projects, conducted from placement activities.

Depending on the programme and the year, placements can last between five weeks and six months.

The experience and data students gain from their placements will often feed into classroom teaching at KP.

International courses often contain continuous, internal and informal assessments, such as feedback on written reports.

All international courses will conclude with a final assessment or assignment.

Each semester starts off with the “Introduction and Welcome Week” for all exchange students, the week before semester start

The Welcome Week consists of a mix of official and social events, organised by the International Department, including help with the all RED TAPE activities, which need to be taken care of prior to semester start. All exchange students are expected to attend this week.
