Political decision to close English-taught programmes as of 2022

A political majority has reached an agreement which means that all Danish university colleges and academies – with a few exceptions – are no longer allowed to admit students on English-taught programmes from September 2022. Current students and students admitted for the 2021 September intake will be able to complete their degree programme.

Travelling to Denmark?

Being an international student at a Danish institution of higher education is now a worthy purpose when travelling to Denmark. However, you must be aware of the requirements such as test and isolation relating to your entry to Denmark. This is based on the categorisation of your home country and whether you have been vaccinated against COVID-19.
