Plans underway to stop Odense’s student exodus

The University of Southern Denmark (SDU) and Odense Municipality are joining forces to help students obtain relevant study jobs on Funen.

Their annual goal – to halt the numbers of undergraduates leaving Odense – is to assist in the finding of 100 new student jobs by 2020.

Few jobs available
“Our challenge is that there are very few academic jobs available in Odense and on Funen,” Steen Møller, the chairman of the municipal employment and welfare committee, told Politiken.

“Every year, SDU loses some undergraduate students because they cannot find relevant student jobs. We would like to keep them here and make it easier for them to finish their studies in Odense.”

Damning figures
Recent figures from Statistics Denmark indicate one in five bachelor students move to another university in order to obtain a master’s degree.

Another survey carried out by Djøf, an interest organisation for lawyers and economists, has revealed that more students at the University of Copenhagen and Copenhagen Business School have professionally relevant student jobs than those at SDU.

Career match-makers
As a way of increasing the number of student job opportunities, municipal business consultants will reach out to local companies highlighting the benefits of them recruiting more students.

The university will also assist with matching students with relevant employers, as well as hosting business brunches for networking purposes. (LR)
