Life – University of Copenhagen

Life at BRIC and in Copenhagen

At BRIC, we find that a balanced work life creates better employees. We therefore encourage our employees to participate in the different social activities at BRIC.

Social activities

BRIC takes part in the yearly DHL run in September in Fælledparken. It is a relay race of 5 x 5 km and a huge and festive event with thousands of runners and supporters.

Association for students and postdocs (ASAP) organizes movie nights, Friday beers and parties. Check out ASAP web or ASAP Facebook for upcoming social events.

International Staff Mobility (ISM) also arranges activities such as lunches, guided tours and other events for researchers and their spouses and children. 

Employee benefits

University of Copenhagen has set up an agreement with Fitness.dk so that UCPH-employees get special price on memberships. UCPH is also starting up a running club and participates in "We bike to work".

All UCPH employees are able to rent cheap vacation houses in Denmark, Sweden and around Europe. Visit Feriefonden for more info.

Language Schools

Denmark offers excellent (often free) language courses if you need to improve your Danish language skills. There are courses at all levels, from beginner to advanced. Visit Studieskolen or CIP.
