UCPH International Summer Programme

In 2015, the University of Copenhagen launched the UCPH International Summer Programme as a new strategic initiative to join together all of our international summer courses.

By creating a new setup, international students have easier access to information about studying at UCPH during the summer term. As part of the initiative, UCPH also allocated funds for the development of new interdisciplinary courses to boost the existing selection of international summer courses.

As a result, UCPH now offers more than 30 international summer courses. UCPH International Summer Programme offers accommodation to all international students in collaboration with Housing Foundation Copenhagen.

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs)

Since 2013, the University of Copenhagen has been a Coursera partner institution. We currently offer 26 MOOCson the Coursera platform and more than 550.000 learners have signed up so far. The courses have been strategically chosen to highlight some of the world-class research being done at UCPH.

The University decided to offer MOOCs based on the belief that the new technologies and rapid innovation within online learning will ultimately lead to better education – not just for the University’s many thousands of MOOC learners around the world, but also for the students enrolled at UCPH.
