Generally, you can be re-enroled provided that:

  • you must have been withdrawn from study for at least 5 months before the new study start at the same programme
  • you have passed the entire first year of studies
  • there are vacant study places in the programme
  • you meet the entry requirements of the programme
  • All Bachelor and BEng Engineering programmes require a minimum GPA in quota 1, however when you apply for re-enrolment it is the quota 2 GPA minimum requirement that must be met. Programmes with a quota 2 GPA are Pharmacy, Medicine and Clinical Biomechanics

Furthermore, your possibilities depend on why your previous enrolment was discontinued.

If SDU stopped your enrolment in the programme, you can only start again if you can prove that your chances of completing the programme have improved significantly

You have to present a written explanation

As part of your application, you have to upload a written explanation explaining how your chances of completing the programme have improved significantly.

Fill in your written explanation in this form

You have to present the matters which you think are relevant as to your chances of completing the programme. For instance you can draw on:

  • why you didn't complete the programme in the first place

  • what relevant activities you have participated in since your enrolment stopped

  • how you have strengthened academic skills relevant to courses which you were previously unable to pass

  • significant changes to your health conditions

  • significant changes to personal or private matters of relevance

Remember to attach documentation regarding relevant matters, to the extend this is possible.

Documentation of health conditions

If illness or other health conditions have prevented you from completing the programme then a doctor´s note may be deemed as relevant documentation if it includes the following: 

  • Stated times for the first and last medical consultation

  • Clarification of whether the medical assessment was made on the basis of own examination or the patient’s information

  • Description of how your condition has affected your ability to study

  • Information regarding a possible fit note or future prospects for further treatment. 

Please check that the doctor´s note also includes:

  • Your name, civil registration number (CPR) or date of birth

  • Date of issue

  • Doctor´s name, CVR or provisions number as well as a signature and stamp

If you stopped your enrolment yourself, you can apply without any special documentation.

If, however, you withdrew at a time where the University would have discontinued your enrolment anyway, you must apply in the same manner as if the University discontinued your enrolment - see the info above.

Unsure whether you have passed the first year?

If you haven't covered the entire first year, you cannot be re-enroled. Inestead, you have to apply for re-admission once again. If you are unsure whether first year is covered, you can apply for re-admission as well.

Application deadlines

Application deadline is March 1st  for admission to study start in September and November 1st for study start in February. Unless the programme is covered by the ministerial dimensioning of study programmes (see below), you can apply for a enrolment in February or in September, not depending on the regular study start of the programme.

You can apply from January 1st/October 1st. We will answer your application no later than August 1st/December 20th.

Apply for re-enrolment

Use the transfer-form if you are not from SDU

A number of programmes at University of Southern Denmark are covered by a ministerial 'dimensioning', regulating the intakes in programmes within certain academic fields.

For dimensioned programmes:

  • you can only apply for study start in September
  • you cannot expect an answer before August
  • you can only start if there are still vacant study places after the admission of first-year students

Find a list of dimensioned programmes

A limited intake capacity

There are special rules for dimensioned programmes because a limit is set to how many students can be taken in each year. The limit covers applicants who apply for regular admission to the first year of the programme as well as applicants wanting enroll in a later step in the programme.
