Danish higher education is famous for an innovative approach of high international standard. The teaching methods are student-centered and include independent study initiatives. Students play an active role in the learning process and take responsibility for planning and carrying out projects, either independently or in groups.
Practice and applied theory
Our teaching is based on practice and applied theory. Theory is approached through assignments, cases and problem-based learning. Furthermore, we link theoretical knowledge with specific cases developed in close cooperation with practice.
Problem-based learning is an instructional method which allows students to work together in teams to answer a question or solve a real-world problem.
You will also practise working in multi-cultural teams across subjects and classes with the aim of strengthening your intercultural skills and competences.
Classroom and dialogue teaching
We value close contact between students and teachers. Mostly tuition is class-based, consisting of classroom and dialogue teaching, short classroom lectures, presentations and workshops as well as cross-disciplinary case work, projects and other exercises. Furthermore, you will have lectures at the Auditorium.
Studying at the Department of Nutrition and Health corresponds to a workload of 40 hours per week on average. A typical week can e.g. consist of 10-20 hours of lectures and instructions, and the remaining time is to be applied for work in study groups, preparing, reading, project work, etc.
