At the Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, all BSc programmes are currently only offered in Danish. This also means that all courses at the bachelor's level are offered in Danish, with a few exceptions.  

For international, non-nordic students, admission to BSc programmes, besides fulfilling the academic admission requirements, is conditioned upon a passed Danish test ('Studieprøven').

About the bachelor

Within the first few years of the bachelor degree program you will build up basic scientific knowledge in the fields that nanoscience and nanotechnology are build upon; chemistry, physics and biology.

Throughout the entire program there are also courses in those nanotechnological topics that combines knowledge from these fields and thus tie the education together, such as:

  • Nanobiology
  • Supramolecular chemistry
  • Mesoscopic electronics
  • Quantum phenomena in nanostructures  

On the third year of the study you can spend half the year concentrating on the specific fields that interest you the most. You can do an internship at a company, take courses at other universities or go on a stay abroad. 

The bachelor degree ends with a bachelor project where you immerse yourself in a topic of your on choice. You can either do the project with a research group or at a company.
