Credit transfer students

If you are currently enrolled in a full degree programme in Denmark, you can apply to take single elective courses at the Faculty of Humanities.

You are eligible to apply as a credit transfer student if you are currently enrolled as:

  • a full degree student at one of the other faculties at the University of Copenhagen, or
  • a full degree student at another Danish university

The credits for the course(s) must be transferrable to your Danish study programme. To ensure that the credits for the course can be transferred, applicants are required to provide the University of Copenhagen with a pre-approval from their Danish educational institution. 

If you are enrolled in an educational institution outside of Denmark or if you have already graduated, you should follow the application procedures for Guest Students at the Faculty of Humanities.

 

The application procedure is as follows:

  1. Identify one or more courses you wish to apply for in the University of Copenhagen – Course Catalogue
  2. Apply for a pre-approval from the Study Board at your Danish university. 

You are required to provide the University of Copenhagen with a pre-approval from your home university stating that the courses can be transferred to your current degree programme.

  1.  Submit your application
  • Fill out the application form (PDF). List your selected courses in order of preference.
  • The course descriptions in the University of Copenhagen – Course Catalogue will tell you which department is offering the course(s).
  • Submit your pre-approval by e-mail to the department  (please find their contact information below).
  • If your application for your first priority is unsuccessful, the department will forward your application to your second priority.
