Academy Profession (AP) degree programmes

An Academy Profession (AP) degree is an undergraduate academic degree. This comprehensive 2-2½ year programme is similar to the first two years of a Bachelor degree and awards 120 ECTS. 

Bachelor's programmes

A full Bachelor's degree programme lasts for 3½ years. You will be awarded 210 ECTS when you graduate and if you don't want to start working straight away, you can continue your studies in Denmark or abroad to get a Master's degree.

Bachelor's top-up programmes

Once you have completed your AP degree, you can take another 1½ years of full-time studies and be awarded 90 ECTS. Your AP degree programme combined with the Bachelor's top-up programme is equivalent to a full Bachelor's degree.
