How to apply for an Erhvervskandiat programme

Enclosures for your application

When you set up your application, you will be asked to attach a number of enclosures.

As a minimum you always have to upload the following documents to the application system:

  • You graduate diploma, including a transcript of records.
  • If you have not yet passed your degree: Your newest official transcript of passed as well as registered courses. If you use the data exchange function in the application portal, please be aware that only passed courses are included in the generated file. Therefore, if you are registered for courses with specific relevance to the entry requirements, you have to upload a separate transcript of your course registration.
  • Proof of any supplementary courses you might have passed.
  • Proof that you fulfill the language requirements of the programme.
  • Solemn declaration regarding the occupational requirements  
  • Enclosure regarding employment in a public or private company or enclosure regarding entrepreneurial company.
  • Course descriptions for each of the courses on your Bachelor's diploma/transcripts.
  • If you have a current residence permit you must also upload a scan of both sides of the residence card.

Data Exchange

If you studied your bachelor’s at University of Southern Denmark, Aarhus University, Aalborg University, Roskilde University, Technical University of Denmark, University of Copenhagen or IT University of Copenhagen, you can collect your results via the data exchange function in the application system. Please note that courses which you have yet to pass will not appear on the generated transcript. The same applies to courses which are not a part of your bachelor’s programme, e.g. supplementary courses. You have to upload separate documentation regarding these courses – even if you are a student at University of Southern Denmark.

Translated enclosures

We receive enclosures in the languages Danish, Norwegian, Swedish and English. If you hold a relevant document in another language, you have to upload the original document along with an official translation or a translation which is signed and stamped by your home university.

Lacking enclosures

If we find that one or more enclosures are lacking in your application, we will contact you as soon as possible via the application system. You will then have seven business days to upload the lacking enclosures.

Course descriptions

You must upload course descriptions for each of the courses on your Bachelor's diploma/transcript. They must be in either Danish, Swedish, Norwegian or English and if you have translated them yourself your university must verify them. You can use our Template for Course Descriptions if you need to create your own.
