Headline

University College Copenhagen (KP) is one of Denmark’s main providers of teacher education, social education, nursing and social work. We also provide physiotherapy, psychomotor therapy, sign language and interpreting, textile design, handicraft and communication, midwifery, occupational therapy, nutrition and health, biomedical laboratory science, radiography and emergency and risk management – as well as postgraduate and supplementary diploma degrees within related fields.

International, professional and academic networking is at the heart of KP’s endeavors to enhance the quality of our study programmes, professional development activities and our research areas.

More than 20,000 students are currently enrolled at KP, and around 2000 staff members are working at KP. Bachelor programmes, post-graduate diploma studies and professional development courses are currently provided in different campus locations in Copenhagen and the Greater Copenhagen Area, as well as in our smaller campus locations at the island of Bornholm and in Aarhus.

KP prides itself on its democratic learning environment. Lecturers and students view each other as equals, there is a focus on group work, and students are encouraged to take individual responsibility for their own education. We adopt a cross-disciplinary approach to learning, use modern technology in the classroom, and work specifically with research-based knowledge that reflects on and interacts with practice.


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.

The location in central Copenhagen offers rich opportunity to experience the city’s fascinating combination of capital atmosphere and intimacy. During your stay, the International Department will provide you with practical support and regularly organise social and cultural events offering you the opportunity to get acquainted with Danish culture and habits, and meet Danish as well as international students.

At KP you can study at Bachelor Degree level. 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.
