Visa Requirement: Study in Denmark 

Admission Requirements

In Denmark, each institution is responsible for its own admissions. Requirements vary from programme to programme. Here is what you need to know about how and when to apply
Assessment of your qualifications

Non-Danish citizens who do not have a Danish entrance examination are eligible for admission if they have qualifications recognised as being comparable to Danish entrance qualifications.

For an official pre-assessment of your qualifications visit ufm.dk/en/recognition. The assessment briefly states what your qualifications correspond to in Denmark and will improve your application. The assessment serves only as a guideline since the individual institution in Denmark is responsible for its own admissions.

The institution in Denmark will require certified copies of your educational qualifications. That is, you must provide copies with original stamps and signatures, or have two people who are not related to you sign the back of the copy with their name, address and birth date. Some institutions require that they receive the documents directly from the issuing institution. This can often take several months, so be sure to arrange in time.

Further information about entrance qualifications, additional tests and potential credit transfers can be obtained from the institutions’ admissions offices.

General admission requirements
English language requirements

All higher education programmes in Denmark require a high standard of English. Applicants to English-taught undergraduate and postgraduate programmes must, as a minimum, prove English proficiency comparable to ‘English B’ in the Danish upper secondary school (gymnasium). Some programmes require ‘English A’, which is one level higher than ‘English B’.

To prove a satisfactory proficiency in English, the language tests TOEFL, IELTS and Cambridge ESOL examinations (CAE) are often used. The score equivalents are determined by the individual institution, so to be certain check out their language requirements. Based upon a rough average of previous reqirements, here is an estimate of the ranges you can expect:
IELTS    TOEFL    Cambridge Advanced English
* English B – test score of at least 6.5 points     * English B – test scores in the ranges of 550-583 (paper-based), or 213-237 (computer-based test), or 79-93 (internet-based test)     * English B – Certificate in Advanced English (CAE)
English A – test score of at least 7.0 points     English A – test scores in the ranges of 587-610 (paper-based), or 240-253 (computer-based test), or 94-101 (internet-based test)     English A – Certificate of Proficiency (CPE)

Note: * Some programmes require ‘English A’, which is one level higher than ‘English B’.

Applicants who are native English speakers are exempted from these test requirements. Also, applicants who can document English proficiency at an equivalent level may contact the institution’s International Admission Office to determine if their English level is sufficient.
Requirements for admission into Danish-taught study programmes

If you are able to study in Danish you can find courses and degree programmes taught in Danish at www.ug.dk. For admission into these programmes you must prove a satisfactory level of proficiency in Danish by taking the test called ‘Danish as a Foreign Language’ (‘Studieprøven i dansk som andetsprog’) or ‘Danish Test 2’ (‘Danskprøve 2’). Some programmes may require that you have passed ‘Danish Test 3’ (‘Danskprøve 3’). Read more at ufm.dk

Note that as an international student you can take Danish lessons for free. In this way you may enroll first in an English-taught undergraduate programme and then continue your education in Danish at the graduate level once you have achieved the required Danish language skills.
Requirements for undergraduate studies

Admission requirements for Bachelor programmes are:

    An entrance examination comparable to a Danish upper secondary school leaving certificate
    Proof of proficiency in English (see above)

Certain study programmes have additional admission requirements. This could include:

    Subjects passed on a certain level. Danish education use levels A, B and C,  A being the highest.
    Subjects passed with a certain minimum grade
    The diploma in total passed with a certain minimum GPA
    Passed admission test/interview

Requirements for postgraduate studies

Admission requirements for Candidatus/Master programmes are:

    an internationally recognised Bachelor’s degree of good standard or equivalent
    proof of proficiency in English (see above)
    proof of proficiency in Danish, if the programme is taught in Danish (se above)

Requirements for PhD studies

To embark on a PhD, you generally need to have a Master’s/Candidatus degree or equivalent.  In some areas, a four-year PhD programme is offered to students who have completed a Bachelor’s qualification and one year of study at postgraduate level. See also current PhD positions
How and when to apply
Undergraduates

For undergraduate studies, the admission deadline is 15 March for courses starting in August or September. A few institutions have additional intakes in January or February. For those courses, the deadline is 1 September. The application forms are available from the institutions approximately two months prior to the deadline. Online application forms can also be found at www.optagelse.dk (read the guide carefully).
Postgraduates

For postgraduate studies, deadlines vary. We recommend that you contact the institution directly for details.
