There are several ways to become a student at the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Copenhagen.
You may visit the faculty for a limited time (usually one or two semesters) as an exchange or guest student if you are already doing a university degree somewhere else. It is also possible to apply for admission as a full degree student. Dependent on your background different language and tuition rules apply. The faculty offers a limited number of English taught two-year Master of Arts programmes (MA) and a large number of Danish taught three-year Bachelor of Arts (BA) and two-year Master of Arts (MA) programmes.
If you are searching for general information on what it's like to be an international student in Denmark, or if you would like more information about being an international student at the University of Copenhagen, the web sites studyindenmark.dk and studies.ku.dk are good resources.
If you would like the experience of living and studying abroad in Copenhagen, you can become a student at the University of Copenhagen for a limited time as part of your home university degree. Read more at exchange admissions.
If you are interested in living in Copenhagen for a while and perhaps considering an international academic or professional career, becoming a full degree student at the University of Copenhagen might be the right option for you.
How to apply
The application process for becoming a full degree student is different depending on whether you would like to study for a three-year bachelor (BA) or two-year master (MA) degree:
Bachelor degree application
The Faculty of Humanities has intake to bachelor degrees once a year, September 1st. You should apply by the Coordinated Enrolment System by quota 1 or quota 2.
In order to apply for a bachelor degree at the Faculty of Humanities, your high school diploma (or equivalent papers) needs to be evaluated by CIRUIS, which is an authority within the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. Find more information on the evaluation process in CIRIUS.
If your papers meet the criteria of the entrance qualifications, you are fit to start applying for a bachelor programme. The individual subjects have different entrance qualifications requirements.
