Roskilde University is a Magna Charta Universitatum member institution. The Magna Charta Universitatum is a document that was signed by 388 rectors and heads of universities from all over Europe and beyond on 18 September 1988, the 900th anniversary of the University of Bologna.
RUC’s pedagogical approach, using project and problem-based learning, is therefore the education model of the future. It prepares students for the future by encouraging them to tackle real issues in collaboration with students from other disciplines, in dialogue with companies and organizations outside RUC and in close interaction with our researchers. But the education model of the future must be constantly developed. We continually focus on development and quality in our education programmes and on always providing our students with a high level of academic training and expertise to match the requirements of the labour market.
The University's research is organized into six Departments that are characterised by multi-disciplinary approaches across traditional discipline boundaries. The research has a special focus on responding to societal needs for knowledge and addressing complex issues in more holistic ways than is typically the case with traditional single disciplinarity.

RUC is a meeting place where you become part of a strong community. It is a campus where ideas and free thinking are brought into play in the dialogue between people with different perspectives and nationalities.
An interdisciplinary approach and project work immerses the students in social and professional contexts that form lasting ties.
The culture at RUC is therefore characterised by a high degree of openness and room for many different positions. The core of RUC’s culture is freedom of thought, democracy and tolerance.
Life at the university is more than attending classes and conducting research. On campus there are many facillities for sports and social time together, indoors and outdoors.
Two multi courts, soccer, disc golf course, nature trails along lakes, streams and fields, a gym, innovation workshops, kitchen gardens, a student house, a canteen, sofa lounges, a cinema, etc. are all places to meet for social moments.
There are many clubs that you can choose to engage in, from nature conservation to choir to robot building. And you can create your own club - perhaps an evening of ignite-speak, build-a-city garden or performance poetry.
