Academic life at UCN


Primarily class-based teaching with close connections

At UCN, you will spend more time in class rooms with your own class, than you will in large auditoriums. This means that there is time for you, for dialogue and for building better connections with your class mates and lecturer.

You will experience many different forms of teaching and learning such as whole-class instruction, group work, self-study, project case work, visits from guest lecturers and speakers and various excursions. 

You will be on campus (nearly) every day

When you are not having classes, you will often be on campus doing group work or participating in different activities.

Teaching that focuses on real life

At UCN, you will meet an academic environment that focuses on introducing you to the real world. Not only are internships/placements/practices an integrated part of all our full-degree programmes, but in addition you will be presented with practice-related cases and projects simulating reality. This may take place as collaboration with companies and institutions or in labs/class-rooms where you can experiment and practice your subject-related skills.

Our learning approach

We always combine theory with practice. We call it Reflective Practice-based Learning. Read more about UCN's learning approach.
