How to change details in my application once it is sent via optagelse.dk?
Send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and state your full name, birthday (CPR-number if you already live in Denmark), the program you have applied for as well as the changes you might want to make.
Changes made can be: applying for standby, cancel standby, apply for postponed study start under Medicine/Clinical Biomechanics, add field of study, state that you complete or cancel completion.
Deadline for making changes to your application is 5 July, noon.
What happens if I get offered a Standby spot?
If you got offered a standby spot, you have to be ’standby’, i.e. available, in the period up to 15 August. During this period, you can leap in anytime if you get offered a spot.
Rejecting the offer of a standby spot, means that you lose the offer. This applies to the admission assurance during admission in the year after as well.
If you got offered a standby spot after 15 August, you still have the right to admission next year (admission assurance), even if you reject the standby spot to begin with. Admission assurance applies as well, if you do not get the offer of a standby spot during the admission year concerned.
Remember to apply for admission next year again and attach a copy of your admission assurance letter.
- Do I have to register for the aptitude test?
What to do if I am not able to attend the aptitude test/interviews?
