Guest students not studying a full degree programme at a Danish university

If your home university does not have an exchange agreement with University of Copenhagen, or you are interested in taking part-time studies as a professional, you can apply at the Faculty of Humanities as an international guest student.

Your application will be subject to an evaluation, whereby you are required to fulfill the academic and language requirements for the applicable courses.

Guest students not studying a full degree programme at a Danish university are required to pay tuition fees for short-term, non-degree-seeking studies at the University of Copenhagen.

Guest students enrolled at a Danish University

If you are currently enroled in a full degree programme at another Danish university, you can apply to take a course(s) at Faculty of Humanities. You are required to provide the University of Copenhagen with a pre-approval from your Danish home university stating that the courses can be transferred to your current degree programme.

Apply before 1 June for autumn semester and 1 November for spring semester.  Your application is processed before 15 July (autumn courses) and 15 December (spring courses).

You may submit your preliminary approval until 15 June for autumn courses and 15 November for spring courses. Applications without a pre-approval will be rejected after these dates.

For more information, contact the Student Guidance Centre at the Department(s) offering the course(s).

Please note that if your enrolment at your Danish home university is subject to tuition, you will have to pay tuition fees at your home university while studying at the University of Copenhagen - Faculty of Humanities.
