Campus Carlsberg


Campus Carlsberg

Campus Carlsberg is UCC’s new campus in Copenhagen
UCC is establishing a modern, attractive campus that will open up in September 2016. The new campus enrolls approximately 10,000 students and is centrally located on the former grounds of the Carlsberg Brewery in close proximity to the Carlsberg S-train station.

Campus Carlsberg will become Denmark’s largest educational environment for teachers and social educators. We bring together our educational activities in order to strengthen interdisciplinary collaboration and to create a strong professional and specialised environment with an international profile. The new campus will give us the opportunity to develop engaging and attractive learning environments and strong professional communities that will work closely together with the fields of practice within UCC’s areas of expertise.

At Campus Carlsberg we offer professional bachelor degrees in Social Education, Teacher Education, Textile and Handicraft Design and Danish Sign Language Interpretation.
