Events at the University

There are several events for international students each semester. The events are arranged at different levels, so you need to watch out for news about events from the Faculty of Theology and the International Office.

The University Orientation Programme

The International Office at the University of Copenhagen organizes an Orientation Programme at the beginning of each semester. This programme consists of both practical and social events. At the beginning of the autumn semester, international students are invited to the University Matriculation Ceremony at which all new students at the University are personally welcomed by the rector.

Venue: Studenterhuset, Købmagergade 52 (next to the Round Tower)
Time: Every Wednesday evening 300-400 international and Danish students meet to socialize, and it is the only central meeting place for international students af the University of Copenhagen.
