Welcome to 1894 new students

We think ahead...

Roskilde University was originally established in order to challenge academic traditions and to experiment with new ways to create and acquire knowledge.

At RUC we cultivate a project and problem oriented approach to knowledge creation, because we believe that the most relevant results are obtained by solving real problems in collaboration with others.

We employ an interdisciplinary approach because no major problems are ever resolved on the basis of any single academic discipline alone.

We also cultivate transparency, because we passionately believe that participation and knowledge-sharing are prerequisites for freedom of thought, democracy, tolerance and development.

...and shape the future
