The UCC Way of Studying

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

If you wish to study at University College UCC, 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 UCC for a study period or practice placement.

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

Teaching and learning

At UCC 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 UCC 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 – supervision and guidance

Placements of various kinds play an important role in the teaching and learning process in all the programmes at UCC. Placements are generally organised by UCC 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 UCC.

Assessment and exams

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.
