During the first three years, students receive basic interdisciplinary training in physics, chemistry, biology, molecular biology, mathematics, and computer science. Many of the courses are followed along with students from these core disciplines. In addition, a number of courses address issues specific to the nano-area.
At the Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, all BSc programmes are currently only offered in Danish. This also means that all courses at the bachelor's level are offered in Danish, with a few exceptions. For international, non-nordic students, admission to BSc programmes, besides fulfilling the academic admission requirements, is conditioned upon a passed Danish test.
