Research in Higher Education (RHE) is a programme led by Associate Professor Annie Aarup Jensen. This programme examines higher education nationally and internationally in the field between social development and educational policy movements at macro and meta levels, investigating the consequences and influence on and development of educational institutions' organizational, educational and pedagogical work on the development, planning, implementation and evaluation of education and teaching.

The RHE programme also investigates the microprocesses of education and teaching, as expressed, for example, in teaching practice, in teachers 'and students' action and interaction, and in problem-oriented learning and teaching processes. The study environment and student well-being also constitute a research area.
