Roskilde University is a Magna Charta Universitatum member institution. The Magna Charta Universitatum is a document that was signed by 388 rectors and heads of universities from all over Europe and beyond on 18 September 1988, the 900th anniversary of the University of Bologna.
RUC’s pedagogical approach, using project and problem-based learning, is therefore the education model of the future. It prepares students for the future by encouraging them to tackle real issues in collaboration with students from other disciplines, in dialogue with companies and organizations outside RUC and in close interaction with our researchers. But the education model of the future must be constantly developed. We continually focus on development and quality in our education programmes and on always providing our students with a high level of academic training and expertise to match the requirements of the labour market.
Research in the future will be open and participatory In a society where everyone is connected, the possibilities for sharing knowledge and ideas are constantly increasing. This is a major potential for university research. We believe that the most vital questions and the most relevant solutions occur in the interaction between universities, individuals, businesses and organizations. The experience possessed by others can be used to identify relevant problems and to qualify solutions in interaction with the university.

Roskilde University Library (RUb) is located by the main entrance and is an open, bright and welcoming library. RUb is specially designed to be a workplace for students and staff at Roskilde University - and, in the best possible way, to help them with their studies.
RUC is a meeting place where you become part of a strong community. It is a campus where ideas and free thinking are brought into play in the dialogue between people with different perspectives and nationalities.
An interdisciplinary approach and project work immerses the students in social and professional contexts that form lasting ties.
The culture at RUC is therefore characterised by a high degree of openness and room for many different positions. The core of RUC’s culture is freedom of thought, democracy and tolerance.
Life at the university is more than attending classes and conducting research. On campus there are many facillities for sports and social time together, indoors and outdoors.
Two multi courts, soccer, disc golf course, nature trails along lakes, streams and fields, a gym, innovation workshops, kitchen gardens, a student house, a canteen, sofa lounges, a cinema, etc. are all places to meet for social moments.
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.

I loved my experience at RUC. I'm from France and the pedagogy here in Denmark and particularly at RUC was really life changing for me. The exchange with the teachers and the way the workload was organised made it a great learning opportunity. The group project was also a great way to learn, and I really enjoyed it all in all. I also think that the welcome we got as...
For it was only half a year of exchange from my home University, it was a really nice and diverse experience from what I usually do. The way of studying at RUC is quite different from what I am used to for RUC focuses on more interactive, free and integrative project work. This was a challenging but enriching way for me to address an acadademic topic, to get in contact...
RUC was overall a good experience but I was disappointed of the courses' quality. The university constantly emphasizes the fact that their examinations and teaching are based on practical cases but everything was pure theory, which was very frustrating. Nevertheless, the facilities were great and the incoming exchange student service and Foundation Course were amazing!
