Organisation and administration[edit] The university is governed by a board consisting of 11 members: 6 members recruited outside the university form the majority of the board, 2 members are appointed by the scientific staff, 1 member is appointed by the administrative staff, and 2 members are appointed by the university students. The rector, the prorector and the director of the university is appointed by the university board. The rector in turn appoints directors of the different parts of the central administration and deans of the different faculties. The deans appoint heads of 50 departments. There is no faculty senate and faculty is not involved in the appointment of rector, deans, or department heads. Hence the university has no faculty governance, although there are elected Academic Boards at faculty level who advise the deans.[9] The governing body manages an annual budget of about BDKK 8.3. The University
University
is organized into six faculties and about 100 departments and research centres. The University
University
employs about 5,600 academic staff and 4,400 technical and administrative staff. The total number of enrolled students is about 40,000 annually, including about 23,000 undergraduate students and 17,000 graduate students. UCPH has established an international graduate talent program which provides grants for international Ph. D, students and a tenure track carrier system. UCPH operates about fifty master’s programmes taught in English, and has arranged about 150 exchange agreements with other institutions and 800 Erasmus agreements. Each year there are about 1,700 incoming exchange students, 2,000 outbound exchange students and 4,000 international degree-seeking students. About 3,000 Ph. D. students study there each year. Faculties[edit] The University
University
of Copenhagen
Copenhagen
currently has six faculties:

Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences Faculty of Humanities Faculty of Law Faculty of Science Faculty of Social Sciences Faculty of Theology

Campuses[edit] The university has four main campus areas that are located in the Capital Region (three in Copenhagen
Copenhagen
and one in Frederiksberg):[10]

North Campus – home to most of the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences. City Campus – home to the Faculty of Social Sciences and Central Administration as well as parts of the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences and the Faculty of Science. South Campus – houses the Faculty of Humanities, the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of Theology, and a small proportion of the Faculty of Science. Frederiksberg
Frederiksberg
Campus – home to sections of the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences.

The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences and the Faculty of Science also use the Taastrup

Campus, which is located in Taastrup
Taastrup
on the western outskirts of Copenhagen.[10] The Faculty of Science also has facilities in Helsingør, Hørsholm

The University
University
of Copenhagen
Copenhagen
was founded in 1479 and is the oldest university in Denmark. Between the closing of the Studium Generale
Studium Generale
in Lund
Lund
in 1536 and the establishment of the University
University
of Aarhus in the late 1920s, it was the only university in Denmark. The university became a centre of Roman Catholic
Roman Catholic
theological learning, but also had faculties for the study of law, medicine, and philosophy.[citation needed] The university was closed by the Church in 1531 to stop the spread of Protestantism, and re-established in 1537 by King Christian III after the Lutheran
Lutheran
Reformation and transformed into an evangelical-Lutheran seminary. Between 1675 and 1788, the university introduced the concept of degree examinations. An examination for theology was added in 1675, followed by law in 1736. By 1788, all faculties required an examination before they would issue a degree. In 1807, the British fleet bombarded Copenhagen
Copenhagen
during the Bombardment of Copenhagen, destroying most of the university's buildings.[11] By 1836, however, the new main building of the university was inaugurated amid extensive building that continued until the end of the century. The University
University
Library (now a part of the Royal Library), the Zoological Museum, the Geological Museum, the Botanic Garden with greenhouses, and the Technical College were also established during this period.

Between 1842 and 1850, the faculties at the university were restructured. Starting in 1842, the University
University
Faculty of Medicine
Medicine
and the Academy of Surgeons merged to form the Faculty of Medical Science, while in 1848 the Faculty of Law
Law
was reorganised and became the Faculty of Jurisprudence and Political Science. In 1850, the Faculty of Mathematics
Mathematics
and Science was separated from the Faculty of Philosophy. In 1845 and 1862 Copenhagen
Copenhagen
co-hosted nordic student meetings with Lund
Lund
University. The first female student was enrolled at the university in 1877. The university underwent explosive growth between 1960 and 1980. The number of students rose from around 6,000 in 1960 to about 26,000 in 1980, with a correspondingly large growth in the number of employees. Buildings built during this time period include the new Zoological Museum, the Hans Christian Ørsted
Hans Christian Ørsted
and August Krogh
August Krogh
Institutes, the campus centre on Amager
Amager
Island, and the Panum Institute.

The Geological Museum.

The new university statute instituted in 1970 involved democratisation of the management of the university. It was modified in 1973 and subsequently applied to all higher education institutions in Denmark. The democratisation was later reversed with the 2003 university reforms. Further change in the structure of the university from 1990 to 1993 made a Bachelor's degree
Bachelor's degree
programme mandatory in virtually all subjects. Also in 1993, the law departments broke off from the Faculty of Social Sciences to form a separate Faculty of Law. In 1994, the University
University
of Copenhagen
Copenhagen
designated environmental studies, north-south relations, and biotechnology as areas of special priority according to its new long-term plan. Starting in 1996 and continuing to the present, the university planned new buildings, including for the University
University

Copenhagen
Faculty of Humanities at Amager

(Ørestaden), along with a Biotechnology

Centre. By 1999, the student population had grown to exceed 35,000, resulting in the university appointing additional professors and other personnel.

South Campus.

In 2003, the revised Danish university law removed faculty, staff and students from the university decision process, creating a top-down control structure that has been described as absolute monarchy, since leaders are granted extensive powers while being appointed exclusively by higher levels in the organization.[12] In 2005, the Center for Health and Society (Center for Sundhed og Samfund – CSS) opened in central Copenhagen, housing the Faculty of Social Sciences and Institute of Public Health, which until then had been located in various places throughout the city. In May 2006, the university announced further plans to leave many of its old buildings in the inner city of Copenhagen, an area that has been home to the university for more than 500 years. The purpose of this has been to gather the university's many departments and faculties on three larger campuses in order to create a bigger, more concentrated and modern student environment with better teaching facilities, as well as to save money on rent and maintenance of the old buildings. The concentration of facilities on larger campuses also allows for more inter-disciplinary cooperation; for example, the Departments of Political Science and Sociology are now located in the same facilities at CSS and can pool resources more easily. In January 2007, the University
University
of Copenhagen
Copenhagen
merged with the Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University
University
and the Danish University
University
of Pharmaceutical Science. The two universities were converted into faculties under the University
University
of Copenhagen, and were renamed as the Faculty of Life Sciences and the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences. In January 2012, the Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences and the veterinary third of the Faculty of Life Sciences merged with the Faculty of Health Sciences forming the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences – and the other two thirds of the Faculty of Life Sciences were merged into the Faculty of Science.

housing[edit]

Tietgenkollegiet.

Although many privately owned dormitories (kollegier in Danish) exist in Copenhagen, there are also five which are partially administered by the university. Only students who have passed at least two years of studies are considered for admission. These are normally referred to as the old dormitories, and they consist of Regensen, Elers' Kollegium, Borchs Kollegium, Hassagers Kollegium, and Valkendorfs Kollegium. Contrary to the tradition of most American dormitories, Danish dormitories in general, and the old dormitories in particular, only offer single rooms for rent, meaning no student has to share their room with others. The University
University

Copenhagen
Housing Foundation is a separate commercial entity[13] which provides housing for the University's international students and guest researchers.[14] Seal[edit] The university's oldest known seal dates from a 1531 letter, it depicts Saint Peter
Saint Peter
with a key and a book. In a circle around him is the text

Sigillum universitatis studii haffnensis.

When the university was re-established by Christian III in 1537 after the Protestant Reformation, it received a new seal, showing king Christian III with crown, sceptre, and globus cruciger above a crowned coat of arms vertically divided between halved versions of the coat of arms of Denmark
Denmark
(to the viewer's left, dexter) and the coat of arms of Norway (to the viever's right, sinister). The text is

Sigillum Universitatis Hafniensis A Christiano III Rege Restauravit

(i.e. Seal of the University
University
of Copenhagen, reestablished by King Christian III).

The 1537 seal is very similar to the current seal, which was made in 2000 and is shown at the top of this page. The text is different and the crowned shield shows the coat of arms of Denmark
Denmark
(as has been the case since 1820, when the heraldic reference to Norway was removed). The text is

Sigillum Universitatis Hafniensis Fundatæ 1479 Reformatæ 1537

Seal of the University

of Copenhagen Founded 1479 Reformed 1537

In addition to the university seal, each of the university's six faculties carry seals of their own.
