Education in the city center of Copenhagen

In Denmark adult education programmes are provided by adult education centres called VUCs. VUC is short for 'Voksenuddannelsescenter' (which literally translates to adult education center). 

KVUC is one of the larger adult education centres in Denmark. Our building is located in the city center of Copenhagen – making KVUC a part of Copenhagen’s cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Several thousand students with different social, cultural and ethnical background participate in our programmes and courses every year.

Accessible and flexible education is our mission

Our mission

A chance to start anew

KVUC's students are mostly adults, 18-30 years of age. Some need help to get back on the track of education or to meet the demands of the labour market. Others need to solidify or supplement their skills. What they all have in common is that a chance to start over is crucial for their future prospects. KVUC's mission is to provide education that brings our students further in life. To accomplish this mission we continuously develop our system of programmes and courses and adopt new teaching strategies.

We offer

Accessible and flexible education

At KVUC we offer a great variety of programmes and courses. Many of KVUC's programmes are provided as both complete units and as single-subject courses/exams permitting students to piece together a full programme step-by-step. Some programmes also offer a choice between regular classroom-based teaching and e-learning (or a combination of the two). This allows students an opportunity to study in their own home at their own pace, while taking advantage of full tutor support.

Programmes and courses

KVUC offers a wide range of educational programmes. The five types of educational programmes target people with different levels of education and different plans and dreams for their future.

We focus on each student's individual needs

At KVUC our student counsellors assist students in designing individual study schedules to match their specific backgrounds, wishes and needs.

Organisation and management

Since January 2007 KVUC (like every other VUC in Denmark) has been a self-governing institution financed by the Danish state via the taximeter system.

The Ministry of Education issues the rules according to which the adult educational centres work.

Each VUC is headed by a principal, who answers to a board. The board has the overall responsibility for running the institution and its activities, while the Principal manages the day-to-day operations.

The top management at KVUC is made up of the Principal, the Vice-principal and the Head of Ressources.

Quote - former student

Studying at KVUC has meant, that I can go for my dream of reading psychology at the University. It's a step towards making my dream come true.
