Students at the University of Copenhagen are expected to take the initiative in planning the best use of their own time. But you wont have to do it all alone. Students often form study groups where they discuss the course material, resolve problems and do exercises together. The students are responsible for their own course of study and are encouraged to participate in exercises and groupwork in addition to the lectures.
But a student’s life also includes liesure activities. Sport and social clubs, banquets, student shows and Friday bar are just a few of the many choices that are available.
The Institute is next to ‘Fælledpark’, a large park for football (soccer), sunbathing, concerts, picnincs or just for hanging out on a summer evening. The Institute is located in a neighborhood called Nørrebro, a part of Copenhagen known for its cultural life, young and diverse inhabitants, and its numerous cafeterias, bars and discos.
