About

History

Roskilde University was originally established in order to challenge academic traditions and to experiment with new ways to create and acquire knowledge

Education

Sustainable solutions for the major future challenges can not be solved with one professionalism alone. Therefore, all our educational programs are interdisciplinary , so you are equipped to solve real-life complex problems.

Research

We involve the outside world in our research, in our identification and understanding of the nature of problems and in the dialogue regarding possible solutions for the benefit of both the local community and the rest of the world. We are also constantly engaged in developing new ways to interact with the world around us, in order to ensure that the university's reach extends as far as possible into the outside world and that the world reaches even further into the university. Everyone should be able to draw on the knowledge that we create at Roskilde University, and we should be able to draw on knowledge from everyone.

  • There are many clubs that you can choose to engage in, from nature conservation to choir to robot building. And you can create your own club - perhaps an evening of ignite-speak, build-a-city garden or performance poetry. Campus can be what you make of it.

Lectures
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

The program is very interesting. However, the lectures are not as good as you would expect. There is not much discussion and the teaching method is a bit boring. It's hard to follow the class. The lectures are based only in the readings. Not much new to what you have already read.
