Health studies at UCN

Our bachelor degree programmes in health care have a high quality and throughout the programme our students benefit from the close collaboration between the five health care education programmes: midwifery, nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, and radiography. Our education programmes have a high quality both theoretically and clinically.

Clinical practice

We have a very close collaboration with clinical practice and industry. In clinical practice we collaborate with well-educated clinical counsellors. The quality of both the theoretical and clinical education is ensured through national accreditation standards and our constant focus on quality development and quality assurance.

The Danish health care system

UCN has formal agreements with external partners in the Danish healthcare system in both the primary and secondary sector, among these hospitals, municipalities, private health providers and health centres.

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.
