Tuition Fees in Denmark

Tuition Fees in Denmark

Bachelor’s and Master’s programs

Nordic students and EU/EEA citizens receive the same treatment as home students when it comes to tuition fees – higher education in Denmark is free for both Bachelor’s and Master’s programs. For international students, fees can range from 6,000 to 16,000 EUR per year depending on the institution and the program of study. Cheaper degrees such as social sciences start from about 600 EUR per year, while specialist degrees like medicine can cost up to 35,000 EUR per year. The average cost of a degree in Denmark is around 12,000 to 15,000 EUR per year. You do not pay tuition fees in Denmark if you have a permanent residence permit (despite your country of origin), or if you have a parent who holds a residence permit.

PhD programs

Many Danish PhD programs are developed as partnerships between universities and private companies, research institutions and business enterprises and are therefore fully funded. Self-financed PhD programs usually cost between 10,000 and 16,000 EUR per year.

The Danish government makes a number of scholarships and grants available to students, offering 80% of the maximum unemployment benefit rate to EU/EEA students who are also active in the Danish workforce. There are also options for non-EU students (detailed below).

A few national and European programs offer scholarships for international students through bilateral agreements with institutions in other countries, as in the case of the following:

  • Nordplus

If you are enrolled at a university in a Nordic or Baltic country, Nordplus offers the opportunity to undertake a part of your studies in another Nordic or Baltic country. 

  • Erasmus/Erasmus Mundus

The Erasmus program allows EU/EEA students to study abroad as part of their home country degree for between 2 and 12 months. The Eramus Mundus (Joint Master Degree) is open to international as well as European students – the scheme offers Master’s students the chance to study a joint degree split between a Danish university and a partner European university. Students should contact individual Erasmus Mundus courses to see if they are eligible.

  • Scholarships for international students

There are several scholarships available for non-EU/EEA students provided by the Danish government under the Cultural Agreements. These are aimed at highly qualified internationals wishing to immerse themselves in fields of study associated with Denmark. They are mainly available to those undertaking Master’s and PhD courses, or Bachelor’s students who have studied Danish for more than two years.
