Holbæk Municipality is located in the North-West of Zealand with approximately 71.000 citizens. The largest city in the municipality is Holbæk.
Holbæk Municipality decided in 2016 to establish a local education- and studycenter, inspired e.g. the swedish experiences with providing education locally, to the local businesslife and the local workplaces.
It is a place where the municipality will make the framework available and targeted attract relevant educations, that is not otherwise provided in the North-West Zealand - but without the education providers having to establish an actual campus in Holbæk.
As a result of this project the education- and studycenter (HUSC) has had approximately 100 students on various post-graduate courses and 67 individual students using it for group work or a quiet place to focus. By september 2018 the University College Absalon has established the Science in Nursing-education in Holbæk with a class of 30 students to begin with and 26 more that starts in January.
