Tell us about the University College Absalon

Our campus of biotech is relatively new, the programme started from 2017. We will have our new and formal campus in upcoming summer 2021. In general, school is trying to offer us the best facilities, especially lab equipment and instrument. The accommodation is brand new for students as well. Before the pandemic, we had Friday bars, Christmas lunch and summer party during the semester where we learn Danish culture and create an international environment. The city is small but safe, as more and more international students are coming, the social life will be more interesting.

What the University College Absalon says

  • Profile of Dr Simon Craige
    Dr Simon Craige
    Dr Simon Craige says:

    We have an established community of international students already studying at our campus, and a local support infrastructure to help with issues such as accommodation, administration, and national registrations, etc.

    We are a relatively new and small facility, so class sizes tend to be smaller (10-40 per class) allowing for more individual teaching, support, and assistance. We have very friendly and dedicated staff, and we have seen that most visiting students do not want to leave!

    We have a central TEAM INTERNATIONAL group, and each campus within Absalon has at least one International Coordinator to help with incoming students and any issues they may experience. In addition, we operate a 'Student Buddy' system, whereby incoming students will be assigned an existing student to help them get settled in and orientated within our campus and the local area. Our campus is closely integrated with a large number of local and major Biotechnology companies, with whom we have collaboration in teaching activities, project work and case studies for our students. In this way, students get to meet prospective employers during the course of their education with us, and the companies get to meet them. To date, we have a high uptake of our students getting employment with our industrial partners.
