Merger made Scandinavia‘s biggest university

The merger between University of Copenhagen, the Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University and the Danish University of Pharmaceutical Sciences became a reality on 1st January 2007. This makes it Scandinavia‘s largest university by number of researchers.
More than 5500 researchers now work at the giant university. In total, 37.000 people study at the University of Copenhagen.

The vision behind the merger was to create Denmark‘s most internationally oriented university. The university now has eight faculties, and the largest cluster of health science in Europe.

In addition the university hopes that the students will be able to tailor their education, and that it will create elite education programmes. A closer cooperation with the industry is another hope after the merger.
