About UC SYD

Geographically, UC SYD, University College South Denmark covers Southern Jutland and has more than 6,500 students and 700 members of staff.

UC SYD, University College South Denmark offers a wide range of higher education study programmes and courses at all levels, with an emphasis on first-cycle bachelor degrees in the field of Educational Sciences, Health Sciences, Social Sciences and Communication Sciences. We have more than 6.000 students, including many international students.

Being a university college means that we aim to provide students with an education that mixes theory with the practical application of what is being taught. Students studying full degrees will often have periods of internships as part of their education, where they are tutored and get first hand experience with applying what they learned in class.

UC SYD also produces research on a wide range of topics, and participate in several national and international projects. Apart from doing "traditional" research, our staff also provide services in the form of consultancy within their fields.

On this page you will find links to both information about our programmes, and our research.

We hope that you will enjoy your visit and look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions.
