International Education

International Education (IE) is a knowledge centre within the international education area.
We provide direction and advise management on the internationalisation of programmes and on the content of partnerships. We do this at both the legislative level and by ensuring common practice across the University.

We work with the following areas within International Education:

  • Programme administration: We manage and assure the quality of the exchange and scholarship programmes Erasmus +, Erasmus staff Exchange, Nordlys, N2N and UCPH's institutional exchange agreements.
  • Student mobility: We handle applications from exchange students to/from the University of Copenhagen. We advise incoming students about enrolment at the University of Copenhagen and supervise outgoing students in the application process under UCPH's bilateral exchange agreements. 
  • Student Centre: We are involved in the Student Centre in Fiolstræde, where we advise Danish and international students on matters relating to exchange.
  • Grant Award: We administrate and disburse scholarships within IARU courses, Novo Nordisk Talent Programme, N2N, and UCPH's Internationalisation Fund.
  • American student loans: We administrate student loans to American students, who are enrolled at the University via the Wiliam D. Ford Direct Loan Program.
  • International conferences: We represent the University of Copenhagen at international conferences such as EAIE, NAFSA and APAIE and prepare proposals for our participation. Besides this, we represent the University, together with other UCPH representatives, in a number of international and national networks such as IARU, UNICA, LERU, NordPlus and UArctic.  
  • International visits: We coordinate and manage both small and large delegation visits to/, from the University and coordinates across the University.
  • Committee work: We provide secretarial services to SAK-I (UCPH's Interntional Administrative Coordinating Committee) and represent the University in the SIRI collaboration, as well as in INTER under Universities Denmark.
  • Recruitment and retention of international full degree students: We coordinate and participate in the University’s participation in TOP Talent events and other relevant international education fairs. We coordinate the University’s work on retaining international graduates in the Danish labour market via the national TalentTDK project.
  • Summer school courses for professionals: We coordinate, promote and manage approximately 20 summer courses a year aimed at external professionals under the name Copenhagen Summer University.
  • Summer school courses for university students: We act as a knowledge centre within the international summer school area and coordinate and market the University’s overall international summer school programme under the name UCPH International Summer Programme.
  • Strategic projects: We coordinate and manage the international strategic projects 4EU+ and University Strategic Partnerships.
  • Trendspotting: We spot and communicate new trends within the international education area for the benefit of programmes and students.

The section is divided into two offices in the UCPH main building located at Frue Plads in Copenhagen.
