Quota 1, 2 and 3

The national application system  KOT features 3 different groups of applicants:

  1. Quota 1: Applicants with a Danish qualifying examination
  2. Quota 2: Applicants with a foreign qualifying examination and citizenship from an EU/EEA country
  3. Quota 3: Applicants having a qualifying examination and a citizenship from a non EU/EEA country

Application deadline for applicants with a foreign qualifying examination, including the International Baccalaureat, is 15 March, noon, via  www.optagelse.dk.

The admission process varies, depending on which quota your application belongs to and of course which programme you have applied to. Read more about the different quotas:

 
Quota 1

You have to apply via quota 1, if you...

  • have obtained a Danish qualifying examination

How your application gets assessed

  • Your application is solely assessed on the basis of  the GPA of your first achieved qualifying examination
  • If the number of applicants outnumbers the programme spots, the applicants with the highest GPA will be accepted
  • You have to fulfill all entry requirements of the programme you are applying for
Quota 2

You have to apply via quota 2, if you…

or if you...

  • have a Danish qualifying examination and want to get assessed on other qualifications than your grade point average
  • want to apply for exemption/special permission if you do not have a qualifying examination, but you fulfill other comparable requirements for the programme you want to apply for - Check special permission
  • are a graduate already or if you have been enrolled in further or higher education programmes twice or more without completing them
  • have an admission course for Engineering programmes and applying for an Engineering course
  • have a Danish qualifying examination and want to apply for a programme which requires the attendance at the aptitude test as a part of the entry requirements

How your application gets assessed

You will be evaulated in several ways: on the basis of your qualifying examination, the result of the aptitude test - a multiple choice test, which is general for the whole university and an interview/specific test or a motivated application.

We will automatically assess your application in quota 1 if you have applied via quota 2 and your qualifying examination fulfills the requirements of the given GPA - this applies to both Danish and non-Danish examinations

As a part of the entry requirements in quota 2, most programmes at SDU require that you attend the aptitude test (uniTEST) - a multiple choice test which is general for the whole university.
Quota 3

You have to apply via quota 3, if you...

  • are a citizen of a country outside EU/EEA/Switzerland
  • are resident in Denmark without a permanent residence permit/visa

How your application gets assessed

The admission process in quota 3 is exactly the same as in quota 2 - all applicants have to take the aptitude test/specific test/interview if the programme they have applied for, requires it.

All applicants with a citizenship from a non-EU/EEA country have to pay tuition fees, unless you have obtained a residence permit in Denmark where  payment is not necessary.
