Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) for use in collaboration projects between students and companies.

The students can collaborate with a company in connection with their graduation project, bachelor or master thesis project. If the company wishes, the students, SDU and the company can enter a non-disclosure agreement; NDA, which states that confidential data must be kept confidential. It is only necessary to make a non-disclosure agreement if the company asks for it. SDU does not require such an agreement.

Use SDU’s template

SDU has prepared a template for a non-disclosure agreement; NDA between the company, the students and SDU. This agreement takes into account that you as a student may share the information you receive from the company with your supervisor, submit a report that will be assessed and that you will be examined in the project. Therefore, please suggest to the company that the SDU template be used.

SDU’s approval of the agreement is faster when the template is used.

The template is available in two versions: intended for one student or intended for several students on the same project. Both versions are available in English and Danish. You only need to fill out one of them.

If the company your exam to be closed to the public, you must notify the study office.
