The deadline for applicants with foreign qualifying examinations is: 15 March
There are several different types of foreign examination:
Examinations that are comparable to Danish qualifying examinations. Your application will be processed under both quota 1 and quota 2 unless you state that it should only be evaluated under quota 1.
- International Baccalaureate (IB), Danish/French Baccalauréat (DFB), European Baccalauréat (EB) or Option Internationale du Baccalauréat (OIB).
- Examinations from EU/EEA Member States.
Examinations that are not comparable to Danish qualifying examinations. Your application will only be processed under quota 2:
- Examinations from outside the EU/EEA.
The rule that the first qualifying examination passed will be used as a basis for admission also applies to applicants with foreign qualifying examinations.
Other foreign examinations must be evaluated individually in order to assess applicants' academic qualifications. This evaluation is carried out at the university. Applications must be forwarded to Student service – admissions and guidance.
Danish language requirement
Applicants with foreign qualifying examinations must also have passed the Study Test in Danish as a second language (formerly Danish Test 2). There is a requirement that all four elements of the Study Test must have been passed with a grade of 6 or above (on the 13-point grading scale) or 02 (on the 7-point grading scale). The requirement for medical students is a grade of 7 (on the 7-point grading scale) in the four subsidiary elements of the Study Test.
The Danish language requirement does not apply to applicants from the Nordic countries.
Payment by students from countries outside the EU/EEA
Full payment is required by the university from part-time and full-time students from countries outside the EU/EEA. See the current teaching fees. This does not apply to exchange students, students who have permanent residence permits or provisional residence permits, with the option of obtaining permanent residence in Denmark, or to students who have been granted a state scholarship.
