UCN Employability CAMP 2018

Kick-start your UCN studies

UCN highly cares about our students’ abilities to become successful at the Danish job market. Thus, we introduce a brand new exciting initiative – UCN Employability Camp 2018.

The camp is an intensive 2-week course from 20-31 August 2018. It focuses on the three most important issues for international students studying in Denmark:

  • Danish language proficiency
  • Reflection and critical thinking incl. Insights into UCN’s Reflective Practice-Based Learning approach (RPL)
  • Insight knowledge about Danish work culture, business life, and the ways to apply it to become a ”wanted” employee in Denmark   

The participation in the CAMP significantly increases your chances to become a successful student and to realize your full potential at UCN, and thus we recommend you to join the UCN Employability CAMP 2018.

NB: The CAMP gives you access to free Danish language course during the Fall 2018. Otherwise each Danish language module will cost € 270 due to new Danish regulations starting from Summer 2018.

The CAMP will start Monday 20 August 08.30 AM CET and is expected to finish around 3.30 PM CET most days during the week. However, as can be seen from the programme, social activities during late afternoon/evening hours can be expected, hence wear practical clothing. The weekend however is leisure time, where you will be able to enjoy and explore the city of Aalborg on your own.

Make sure to arrive Sunday 19 August at the latest.

Housing

The housing during the UCN Employability CAMP is under your own responsibility, however do not hesitate to address your questions to our counselling hotline housing@ucn.dk.

UCN has a housing agreement with Aalborg Municipality called “Roof over your head” Guarantee. The Housing Guarantee is a guarantee that you as a new student, starting to study in the Municipality of Aalborg (Aalborg Kommune), will get a temporary roof over your head, in case you have not found housing by yourself. The guarantee means that you will get accommodation at BBBB in Aalborg, Cabins (a hostel), and you will receive a subsidy from the Municipality of Aalborg to help cover part of your expenses. The guarantee ensures that you can stay at BBBB in Aalborg for DKK 86 per night as of 1 August until November. However, to take advantage of this opportunity you MUST register at AKU Aalborg and we recommend you to do that already now, as it is free of charge and maximizes your chances of housing significantly.
