University of Copenhagen


The University of Copenhagen or Københavns Universitet was the first university founded in Denmark and is currently the second largest research institution in Denmark after Aarhus University.  It was inaugurated in June 1479, after King Christian I of Denmark was granted approval for its establishment by Pope Sixtus IV. Based on a German model, the University consisted of four faculties: Theology, Law, Medicine and Philosophy.

Today, the University of Copenhagen has several campuses situated in the Copenhagen area, with the oldest part of the campus in the city centre.  Most disciplines are taught in Danish,  many are, however, taught in English also.  The University has approximately 2,800 non-Danish students enrolled of which almost half are from other Nordic countries.

The oldest of the University of Copenhagen's notable alumni is Tycho Brahe (1546–1601), the Danish astronomer who gained infamy for producing the first scientific documentation of supernovas and discovered the constellation Cassiopeia.
