The University of Copenhagen (Københavns Universitet, KU) offers blended learning, a Study Information System (SIS), and part-time studies.

The purpose of the University – to quote the University Statute – is to ’conduct research and provide further education to the highest academic level’.

The university's main office is in Copenhagen, Denmark, and it has four campus areas in the city: North Campus (Nørre Campus), City Campus, South Campus (Søndre Campus) and Frederiksberg Campus. It has eight faculties offer over 200 programmes for study in health sciences, humanities, law, life sciences, pharmaceutical sciences, science, social sciences, and theology.

On 1 January 2007, the University merged with The Royal Veterinary and Agricultural University and The Danish University of Pharmaceutical Sciences. The two universities are now faculties at the University of Copenhagen.

KU has over 37,000 students and more than 7,000 employees.

This HEI offers blended learning, for instance in the “Forest & Landscape” course (Blended learning combining e-learning and class-room discussions) and the “Participatory Forest Management - 310017” course (internet-based teaching modules integrating literature studies and exercises and supported by on-line discussions in which students are expected to participate. In addition, a number of presentations, analyses and discussions of selected topics and cases as well as e-learning support will be offered as classroom sessions.) Furthermore there is also the example of the e-learning course on Climate Change.

The faculties of Veterinary Sciences and Agricultural Sciences have particularly strong and well know open course offers.

The University of Copenhagen also offers students a portal called punkt ku for personal e-mail, group discussions, course descriptions, course registration and Absalon, the portal that hosts the homepages of the different courses. Besides this, there’s also a Study Information System (SIS)
