At UCN we highly care about our students’ chances of becoming successful on the Danish labour market. Since the initiative was launched in 2018, more than 200 new, ambitious international students have had the time of their lives – therefore, we are repeating the success by launching UCN Employability CAMP 2020.
The CAMP is an intensive two-week course from 17-28 August 2020 with emphasis on:
By participating in the UCN Employability CAMP, you will be better prepared for your studies at UCN and experience a smoother transition to Denmark. Gaining new friends and becoming a part of the international community at UCN will give you a head-start on your life in Aalborg.
Along with increasing your chances of becoming a successful student and to realize your full potential during and after your studies at UCN, the CAMP also gives you access to free Danish language courses.
The CAMP will start on Monday, August 17 at 8:30 (CET) and is expected to finish around 3:30 PM (CET) most days during the week. However, social activities during late afternoon and evening hours can be expected, so remember to bring practical clothing.
When and where?
17 – 28 August at UCN, Hobrovej 85, 9000 Aalborg.
The programme will be published during spring 2020.

"I came to the Employability CAMP, because I wanted to have a great start to University. I wanted to make some friends, learn Danish and get to know Aalborg better.
I am really happy about my decision, and I will definitely recommend to join the Employability CAMP. Everybody should come to this camp! If you are a new student at UCN, this Employability CAMP is the first thing you need to do. Just sign in and go to the CAMP next year. From the first day, it was awesome. Every single activity here is just perfect. Every lecture and every presentation!"

"It was a wonderful two-week period of time. We got to taste a lot of traditional Danish food, and we also went to visit different places in the Northern part of Denmark. We saw beautiful sceneries and wonderful places.
I would definitely recommend participating in the CAMP, because it's a really good way to make friendships before the start of term and to get to know your way around campus. It is a great way to make new friendships and explore Denmark."
