Roskilde University





Roskilde University [RU] opened in 1972. It chose a different approach to education than that being practiced at the time at Denmark's three other, traditional universities. RU's new educational concept included elements such as basic studies programmes, interdisciplinarity, problem orientation and group project work. The traditional universities in Denmark have since adopted much of the original RU concept themselves, not least the concept of group project work.

RU has more than 9500 students and is thus the fifth-largest university in Denmark. The basic educational principles at the university are problem-oriented project work, participant direction and joint responsibility. Project work is participant-directed and builds on the importance of student commitment and own and joint responsibility. Students gain their first experience at the basic studies, which point them in the direction of advanced-level courses, where many different specialised course studies may be combined within and across disciplines and main subject areas, both during the bachelor studies and the masterメs studies.
