Many students don’t get a good student job and risk subsequent unemployment, according to the City of Copenhagen's mayor for employment and integration. But according to the National Union of Danish Students DSF, student jobs are already taking up too much of students’ time.
A controversial theory claims that women in progressive and wealthy countries like Denmark opt out of IT, mathematics and engineering because they, by nature, are less interested in these subjects than men are. But a Danish professor in the field of cognitive neuroscience says that the research does not support this conclusion.
For the first time ever, new students at the University of Copenhagen were only welcomed digitally - via video. Four students followed the ceremony from their couch out in the suburbs.
Many international students withdrew their applications to the University of Copenhagen during the pandemic. »We can still maintain a good internationalisation of our study programmes,« university states.
It is not only in higher education that men are being surpassed by women. Many men have no education at all, and this is a serious problem, says psychologist Svend Aage Madsen. A problem for society and for the men themselves.
Most new students on higher education programmes are women. And individual subjects are dominated by specific genders. Here are the numbers.
It is »crazy« how gender-skewed the Danish education system is. And this has serious consequences, both for higher education and for society. This is according to several organisations who now all call for action.
Record applicant numbers have meant higher admissions on almost all of the faculties at the University of Copenhagen. Yet again this year, the majority of new students are women.
The highest university admission requirements are significantly lower than last year in Denmark. This is after students no longer get a bonus for quickly starting their studies.
Only four out of 34 humanities study programmes at the University of Copenhagen have a higher number of male applicants. And there are mostly women applicants on all health science programmes.
