Danish reforms aim to boost university competitiveness

Danish universities will give students more freedom and build closer links with the labour market, according to a government strategy to reform the higher education system.

The “flexible university education for the future” plan, presented by research minister Tommy Ahlers on 17 September, is meant to make higher education in the country more competitive. As part of the plan, students would be able to combine more subjects, and switching between subject areas would become easier. 

“I want to move away from the rigid system, where everyone goes through university the same way,” Ahlers said. “We need to design a more flexible education system that fits better with different wishes, and the time we live in.”
