About University College Absalon

With thirteen different professional bachelor degree programmes, University College Absalon is the cornerstone for education in our region of Zealand.

We are the first University College in Denmark to achieve an institutional accreditation, a much-coveted distinction and the highest official recognition for quality assurance of higher education institutions in Denmark.

Our programmes work in close collaboration with the professions that our students are training to become part of. This ensures high-quality traineeship opportunities as well as a constant development of our programmes to provide graduates with the skils needed to join and navigate in an ever-changing job market. It is a priority for us to educate students with professional qualifications and social competences that can ensure high standards in the public as well as the private sector.
