Introduction

The University of Southern Denmark (SDU) is a comprehensive university with research and teaching in a broad range of fields. The University of Southern Denmark consists of five faculties: Faculty of Engineering Engineering – education, research and future. Our engineers and researchers are responsible for the technology of the future. Faculty of Health Sciences One of only three in Denmark, the Faculty of Health Sciences enjoys close cooperation with Odense University Hospital, industry and experts across the world. Faculty of Humanities As the University’s largest Faculty, Humanities offer students and researchers an expansive and dynamic learning environment where new academic areas complement traditional studies. Faculty of Science Learning is hands-on at the Faculty of Science, where modern laboratories and an emphasis on fieldwork give you the opportunity to put theory into practice. Faculty of Business and Social Sciences An extensive network of public and private institutions benefits directly from research at the Faculty of Business and Social Sciences. About SDU The University of Southern Denmark welcomed the first students onto the campus in Odense in September 1966, and things have been developing by leaps and bounds ever since. We now have five faculties with more than 32,000 students, almost 20% of whom are from abroad, and more than 4,000 employees distributed across our main campus in Odense and regional campuses in Slagelse, Kolding, Esbjerg and Sønderborg. Several international studies document that we conduct world-class research and are one of the top fifty young universities in the world. Over the years, the University of Southern Denmark has interwoven many lives. The roughly five years which a student invests in a university education will lay the groundwork for the rest of his or her life. And with around 115 different study programmes in the fields of the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, health sciences and engineering, graduates of the University of Southern Denmark are now members of virtually every profession in the international community. D-IAS – a flagship for free research At SDU, we have always cooperated across disciplines in order to create new and ground-breaking research.Through the Danish Institute for Advanced Study (D-IAS), we now bring together a number of our very best researchers across disciplines to create a research environment that is absolutely world-class elite. SDU in six cities SDU is the largest research and educational institution in South Denmark. We are present in Odense, Kolding, Esbjerg and Sønderborg, as well as in Slagelse and Copenhagen.
