I want to switch to another programme
If you wish to change from one programme to another, as a general rule you will have to apply for regular admission to the new programme - in the same manner as when you started in your current programme.
However, there are specific rules for changing between programmes that are related to the same academic field. If you are able to achieve a credit transfer covering the entire first year of the new programme, you have to apply for a change of study programme rather than regular admission. This is especially relevant if you are switching between programmes where the first year is the same.
Before you apply, we advice that you compare the structure of you current programme with that of the new programme. If you are uncertain about whether your credit transfer will cover the entire first year, it is a good idea to apply for regular admission as well as a change of programme - this will optimize your opportunity.
Switching between profiles in the same programme
If you wish to switch between profiles or branches within the samme programme, you have to forward an application to the Study Board of your programme.
If you wish to change your minor or switch from a programme including a minor to the samme programme without a minor or vice versa, you have to apply within three weeks from study start. You have to forward your request to Admission via SPOC.
If you wish to make a change after the first three weeks, you have to forward an application to your Study board instead. In this case the change will not be executed before the next semester start and is generally only allowed if it will not prolong your studies. This means that all your credits must be transferable. Only if extraordinary conditions apply, are you allowed to switch anyway.
I discontinued my studies - now I want to start again
If you have discontinued your studies, you can apply for a new enrollment. How to apply, depends on how much of the programme you have already passed.
If you have passed the entire first year of the programme, you have to apply for a re-enrollment.
If there are courses in the first year that you have not passed, you need to apply for a regular admission to the programme - in the same manner as when you first started. If your studies were discontinued by the University, you need an exemption to be readmitted.
I want to transfer to University of Southern Denmark from another university
If you are a student at another University, but wish to continue your studies at University of Southern Denmark, you can apply for a transfer or for regular admission.
You can apply for a transfer if you expect a credit transfer covering the entire first year of the programme. Please note that the content and structure of your current programme is not necessarily the same as that of the programme at SDU. So having passed an entire year or more in your current programme does not necessarily mean that your credits match the first year at SDU. Therefore we advice that you read more about the specific programme and its structure before applying.
If you lack one or more courses in the first year, you need to apply for regular admission instead - in the same manner as when you entered your current programme. If you are admitted, you have to apply for a credit transfer afterwards.
If you are unsure whether your current credits match the first year at SDU, you can apply for a transfer as well as for regular admission - this will optimize your chances.
