Dear student

Congratulations  with your admission to the Bachelor’s Degree Programme in Global Nutrition and Health (GNH).

You have been accepted to a small but very internationally diverse programme, since the approx. 200 students and 15 lecturers of the programme come from different parts of the world. Thus, you will become part of an intercultural study environment where our variety is a resource that contributes to learning.

We look forward to meeting you on your first day, where lecturers and students will welcome you to GNH and University College Copenhagen. We are looking forward to working with you over the next 3½ years so that you develop a solid foundation for your future career within Global Nutrition and Health.

Yours sincerely 

Cecilie Sveistrup, Head of Programme
