Three types of degrees

UCN is focused on offering three types of degrees.

What is an Academy Profession Degree?

An academy profession degree is a short 2-year programme that is typically aimed at a business or industry career. The academy profession degree programme combines theory with practice and contains a compulsory internship of approx. three months.

As an AP graduate, you may combine your degree with a suitable 1½-year top-up degree, earning you a bachelor's degree.

What is a Top-up Degree?

A top-up degree is 1½ years of study to supplement an academy profession degree making it equal to a full bachelor's degree in quality and length. The top-up degree programme combines theory with practice and contains a compulsory internship of approx. three months.

As an example, you may start out with an academy profession degree in Marketing Management and after graduation apply to a top-up programme to achieve a bachelor’s degree in e.g. Sport Management.

What is a Bachelor's Degree?

A bachelor’s degree at a university college is typically 3½ years of study, combining both theory and practice within its field. The degree includes a compulsory internship in a business or organisation in Denmark or abroad for the duration of approx. six months.

The degree can be studied within a single field of study or as a combination of an academy profession degree (2 years) and a top-up degree (1½ years) as described below.
