University College UCC, Copenhagen was established in 2008 following a merger between a number of higher education institutions with a long history in the Danish educational sector. Today, UCC is one of the main providers of bachelor degrees in Teacher Education and Social Education in Denmark, with more than 9,000 full-time students enrolled in these fields alone and an additional 6,000 part-time students studying for a postgraduate or diploma degree. The education and research activities of UCC are housed in three campuses. The smaller campuses are located in Hillerød (just north of Copenhagen) and in Bornholm, while the majority of activities are located at the Carlsberg Campus, which is centrally located in Copenhagen.
UCC Campus Carlsberg
University College UCC, Copenhagen will host ECER 2017 at its brand new campus. The UCC campus is centrally located approximately 3 km west of Copenhagen city centre, which is approximately 20 - 30 minutes walking distance from central Copenhagen and 5 - 10 minutes by public transport (bus or train). With state of the art auditoriums and facilities for smaller workshops and digital solutions, the campus provides excellent facilities for ECER 2017. UCC Campus Carlsberg consists of two seven-storey buildings connected by roofed bridges. Conference rooms and lecture halls are distributed throughout the two buildings. All rooms are, thus, within a short walking distance, and all conference activities will take place in a limited area ensuring a dynamic atmosphere and easy access for participants.
