2016 Roskilde University Scholarships For International Graduate Students in Denmark



About Roskilde University:

The most important task of Roskilde University is to contribute to experimental, innovative forms of learning and knowledge creation.

The university is research-driven and provides education for future generations of managers, teachers and experts based on advanced knowledge.

RUC is characterised by:

  • pushing boundaries for knowledge through a problem-oriented approach
  • focusing research and education on fields where the university has international or national status
  • bringing university and society together.

Educational Principles

The basic educational principles at the university are problem-oriented project work, participant direction and joint responsibility. From enrolment to graduation, students are trained to assess the importance of academic problems and the relevance of selected theories and methods on a scientific basis. Project work is participant-directed and builds on the importance of student commitment and own and joint responsibility.

The phased choice of specialisation is based on the students’ experience with the problem areas of the individual subjects and the scientific approaches. 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’s studies.

At RUC, students are responsible for and control their education themselves. Based on their own critical sense and active participation, students are guided through their study programmes at RUC which offers an international, interdisciplinary and educationally challenging environment providing the perfect framework for their studies.

    To whom it may concern,

    please be kind enough to inform me of the date for this years commencement or graduation.

    My son, Mark Dobbs Jackson, is due to graduate at the end of this academic year (2017), and I must make arrangements to travel from the US. He is obviously – and rightly, more focused on studies than my need to make such arrangements.

    Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Respectfully,

    Paul D. Jackson

    1. Paul,
      As long as you can be reached via the email address you used to post this comment, we’ll do our best to keep you informed.
      Best Regards,
      Daniel.
