The IT University of Copenhagen (ITU) was established in 1999 and is Denmark’s leading university focusing on IT research and education. We deliver state-of-the-art teaching and research within computer science, business IT and digital design. 


  • Teaching at the IT University of Copenhagen (ITU) is research-based and based on a constructivist theory of learning, which states that learners construct their own learning in the contextual settings based on prior knowledge and experience. With a student-centered approach to learning, ITU organizes teaching and learning with a focus on the individual student's learning process, including extensive use of feedback. 
  • Teaching and learning activities are co-created in intense collaboration between faculty, students and administrative staff in order to create an excellent and motivating learning environment for our students.


There are a number of different kind of research entities here at ITU. 

Doing research can pose ethical dilemmas and integrity challenges. For instance, how to conduct responsible research? All researchers at the IT University are expected to:

  • be familiar with (and follow) the research integrity guidelines described in this section
  • in certain instances (for example when applying for external research funding requiring ethical approval), ensure that ethical requirements of their research are approved by the Pro-rector. The Pro-rector may choose to consult the Research Ethics Committee during the approval phase.


  • The Study and Career Guidance offers coaching and guidance in study and career. We host a number of events for students, and we offer a talk with a professional and trained student advisor.
  • Come by The Study and Career Guidance if you are experiencing doubt about your choice of study, are considering your future career, wishes to clarify your skills or the like.

They are prepared to give knowledge about IT in a way that is understandable for people with different background. It starts from the basics but there is an opportunity to go into details. It gives a hands on knowledge which will probably be useful on the job market.
