Tuition & fees

Tuition Fee

EU citizens and citizens of Liechtenstein, Iceland, Switzerland and Norway are automatically eligible for free tuition. This can also apply to students from other countries who have Danish residency.

Citizens from other countries who are not eligible for free tuition pay around Euro 9,200 per year (68,000 Danish) or Euro 18,400 total for the 2 years (136,000 DKK). The fee for the first year must be paid upon enrolment. The fee for the second year must be paid before the end of Semester 2 in the first year.

Visa

If students come from countries where a visa to study in Denmark is required, the Danish Foreign Ministry requires proof that they have sufficient funds to support themselves while studying and living in Denmark. Normally a visa is issued only when the first year fee has been paid in full.

Budget

Danish and some foreign students with long-term Danish residency are eligible for a grant (SU) covering part of the living costs, including while on any work placement.

Scholarships represent another source of possible financial support. However, please be aware that with the exception of the above, grants and scholarships for international students are usually very hard to come by in Denmark.
