The University of Greenland (locally known as Ilisimatusarfik) is a university located in Nuuk, Greenland. Most courses are taught in Danish and a few in Greenlandic. As of 2007, the university had approximately 150 students, almost all local inhabitants, and around 14 academic staff and five technical-administrative employees. The modest student population is due in part to the government's policy allowing students a free university education anywhere in Europe or North America. Ilisimatusarfik is located in the historical Herrnhut mission station, but is scheduled to move into a new research complex called Ilimmarfik in 2009. The university has a DKK 14.8 million budget.
The university has four departments:
* Department of Management and Economics
* Department of Language, Literature and Media Studies
* Department of Cultural and Social History
* Department of Theology
The university awards Baccalaureate degrees in all departments and Master's Degrees in all areas except Theology. Ph.D.-programmes have been offered and at the moment five students are taking the degree.
