Since 1889, when the first Danish school for social educators was established, VIA University College has educated candidates for public and private professions. The strength of our programmes continues to be the combination of research-based theoretical teaching with practice placements and clinical training.
At VIA, we offer a wide range of educational programmes within health, social education, technology, design, business and animation. As Denmark's largest university of applied sciences, we strive to be a leading educational institution in Denmark and internationally.
In 2013, the Danish university colleges gained official status as research institutions. We follow the same scientific standards as traditional universities but focus on applied research.Our goal is that by 2020, 30 percent of our employees will hold a PhD. Already, most students gain experience with research, innovation and development during their studies. We take particular pride in our close collaboration with professional practice. As a result, the knowledge we produce helps solve real challenges for public and private organisations – in Denmark and internationally.
