Internationalisation Strategy

This strategy outlines how University College UCC intend to deliver on our aspiration of becoming one of the leading international profiles in Denmark regarding knowledge related to the welfare professions and to represent an internationally acknowledged study and research environment. The strategy is a manifestation of UCC’s aim to contribute to the Bologna objectives that all higher education should be based on state of the art research and development fostering innovation and creativity in society and to enhance international openness and mobility (Leuven Communique 2009). UCC also strives to ensure that this endeavour supports the social dimension of equal opportunities to quality education also emphasized as part of the Bologna ambitions.

UCC strives to frame a global scope for students and staff and also to be able to sufficiently strengthen the recruitment of international students and staff. Together with stakeholders ranging from government bodies, municipalities, regions, institutions including day care centres, schools and hospitals, national and international higher education institutions, UCC intensifies the effort to meet a globalized world with adequate competencies, high quality teaching and Research and Development. Situated in the capital city of Denmark, and strengthened by a second campus in the Copenhagen wider area in northern Zealand, UCC highly benefits from being part of a strong Nordic region, a joined Europe and a globalized society. Prioritising cooperation UCC offers consolidated and challenging development potentials to international partners.
