Know and follow the rules
In order to know your rights and responsibilities, you must be familiar with the rules that apply to you. Some of them are found in your curriculum, which is a good place to start.
In addition to the curriculum and other regulations determined by the University of Copenhagen, you should also be aware of various pieces of legislation.
