You are not alone
When you begin your studies at Roskilde University, you will meet a team of dedicated tutors who have worked intensively throughout the summer to give you and your fellow students the best start to your studies. The tutors will introduce you to life as a student at Roskilde University, so that you have a good network when your study programme begins. The intro period lasts two weeks and prepares you for your new student life through several different activities. During the intro period, you and your fellow students will go on an off-campus trip which is a great opportunity to get to know your fellow students.
A new daily life
You will encounter a different structure to your daily life compared to what you might have been used to before. You will have fewer on-campus lessons and you will be challenged with higher demands of independent preparation for your courses.
Concurrently, you will begin your project work together with your group of fellow RUC-students. It’s up to you and the group to plan your own time and complete the necessary tasks in order to make progress throughout the semester – guided by one of the researchers from your programme.
Commitment, independence and responsibility
Throughout the semester you will be guided by leading professors and lecturers, and you will be given assignments and tests as you make your academic progression. By the end of the semester, you and your project group will have an exam on the project report that you have handed in as a result of the semester’s project work.
It requires independence and great responsibility to be a bachelor student. In return you will develop the much needed knowledge, skills and competences that employers all over the world request to be able to solve present and future challenges.
