Your best shots from the KUA sit-in protest

It was all about showing solidarity with the study programmes that are lined up for cutbacks. Students sat-in at the Humanities Buildings KUA and stayed the night

The Humanities campus (KUA) has some hard floors, but it also has some soft sofas. Some students have been proving their mettle to show how important their education is.

A recent proposal by the Danish government to cut 4,000 study places from Danish universities is meant to reduce student numbers in programmes with high unemployment, a process known as the ‘dimensioning’ plan.

This will disproportionally affect programs in the Faculty of Humanities. This faculty’s student council, HUMrådet, organised the sit-in to protest the cutbacks.
