Throughout all the programmes, our goal is to prepare you for a work life that makes demands on your independence and drive. A worklife that entails responsibilities and requires you to be a good practitioner with an extensive theoretical knowledge.

In order to be well-equipped to pratice your profession, theoretically and practically, the programmes are arranged in a way that requires study activity for 37 hours a week.

We prepare you for independence and challenges
A Professional Bachelor's Programme consists of various learning activities: classroom lessons, practical/clinical placements or internships, group and project-based work and preparation at home, individually and in study groups.

It is not only during classroom lessons that you need to make an effort. Active participation in all the learning activitives ensures a solid professional foundation to handle future working days with challenges, independent decision making and responsibility.

At University College Absalon you will meet dedicated teachers, who will guide you in developing as a student throughout the programme.
You can talk to our student advisors when you need help with your study skills and course of studies, as well as in case of personal problems or examination anxiety.

The Student Council (De Studerendes Råd, DSR) can assist if you require information about your rights as a student, and if you need advice on how to initiate student activities.
