Fee-paying guest students

You have the option of studying single courses at the Faculty of Humanities. Guest enrolment is an alternative to applying through an exchange agreement or as a degree-seeking student. 

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.
