VIA University College is Denmark’s largest and most international university college – also known as a university of applied sciences – with a total of 18,500 students of which 2,500 are international students from all over the world.

Our focus on innovation and entrepreneurship has awarded us the prize as Denmark's leading entrepreneurial institution of higher education in both 2014 and 2018.

Our educational programmes cater to new as well as old professions, and our programmes belong to a long tradition for high-standard education in Denmark. Some of our programmes are more than 100 years old and have therefore been a contributory factor in shaping and developing the renowned Danish welfare society.

We cover the Central Denmark Region with a total of eight modern campuses, which all are characterised by a dynamic and interdisciplinary environment where students meet across programmes and faculties.

VIA offers 40 degree programmes – almost half in English - in the following areas:
Animation
Built Environment
Business
Design
Engineering
Film & Transmedia

The strength of our programmes continues to be the combination of research-based theoretical teaching with practical placements and clinical training. Our goal is to help develop professional practice in order to find solutions to the challenges facing society - in Denmark and internationally.

Accreditation

VIA is a certified holder of an ERASMUS+ charter. We are a member of the European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA) and hold a Qualification Certificate from the People’s Republic of China. VIA is also Denmark’s only accredited institution by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT).

A Different Style of Teaching

The Scandinavian approach to higher education is deeply rooted in the professions for which we train our graduates.

Students learn the latest theories and methods, participate in research and innovation activities and gain hands-on experience through practical training.

We encourage students to engage and exchange ideas with easy access to lecturers and staff. We offer small-size classes, simulation-based training and e-learning.

R&D, Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Research, development and entrepreneurship are integrated parts of our programmes. For several years, VIA has been named the most entrepreneurial university institution in Denmark with 25% of students participating in innovation activities.

Our 21 research centres carry out projects that are practice-led, multidisciplinary and increasingly international in scope. We participate and lead national and international research projects and strive to be a preferred partner in our field.
