See what documentation you have to send with your application

You can choose up to five 5 priorities on the application form – but be aware of the following:

  • If you are accepted into a lower priority, you will not be placed on the waiting list for your 1st priority.
  • If you apply for admission to one programme and are not accepted straight away, you will be placed on the waiting list for any available study places.
  • If you apply for admission to several of our programmes and are not accepted into any of them, you will be placed on a waiting list for all the programmes you applied to. You will be offered a place on whichever programme gets to your name first on their waiting list. This might not be your 1st priority.
  • You will only be offered one place, one time. So, if you say no, you will not be put on the waiting list for any of the other programmes you applied for. You will then need to stay up to date with any available study places

You can calculate your weighted average using the Excel sheet below. You must enter your marks and the associated ECTS credits. Please note that this average only provides a guideline.

You will get an answer from us no later than 7 July.

Where do I get the answer?

You’ll get the answer in your digital post from public authorities.

If you do not have a Danish CPR number (and therefore cannot recieve digital post from public authorities), an answer will be sent to the email address you provided in your application.

I have not received my answer!

First of all – please check your spam folder.

Even though you have applied for several programmes, you will only get one answer. You will only get an answer from the programme that has accepted you.

If you don’t get offered a study place on any programme, you will get only one rejection letter.

Your first day of study will be Wednesday 24 August 2022.
