Roskilde University (RUC) was founded in 1972 with the objective of setting new standards in education and learning by breaking with traditional university practices and embracing student involvement and critical thinking. The university is research-driven and proud to provide a strong link between research and teaching, contributing to experimental, innovative forms of learning and knowledge creation.
Central to RUC’s mission are interdisciplinarity, problem-based approaches and student-led group work on specific projects to boost the learning experience. Studies therefore consist of 50% specialized courses and 50% project-based group work that promotes independent critical thinking, creativity and innovation among the student body.
At RUC, we view ERUA as an opportunity to experiment and innovate in teaching, learning and mobility to bring Europe and Europeans closer together to tackle the challenges of the 21st century.
