Change of programme

 A 'change of programme' is possible if:

  • you are enrolled in a programme at a Danish university
  • you have passed courses equivalent to the entire first year of studies in the programme you are applying for
  • you meet the entry requirements of the programme
  • there are available study places in the programme

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 re-enrollment in February or in September, not depending on the regular study start of the programme. You can apply from January 1st/October 1st.

If you miss the deadline, you can apply for a second round of admission running May 1st-June 1st and November 2nd-December 1st.

We will answer your application no later than August 1st/December 20th.

Special rules for dimensioned programmes

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

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.
