FAQ: Admission to full-degree programmes

Political decision to close English-taught full-degree programmes. Why?

A political majority has reached an agreement which means that most of the Danish university colleges and academies are not allowed to provide English-language study programmes as of September 2022. Unfortunately, this means that UCN has to close our English-taught programmes.

The political agreement is intended to partially finance the government's plans for study programmes across the whole country, and partially to reduce expenses relating to state grants (SU) for foreign students.

Read the press release from the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science.

What does this mean for current and new students?

Students who are currently enrolled in an English-taught programme have the right to complete their degrees and will experience no decline in quality. The same applies to students who are being admitted this year.

If you are looking to study at UCN, this unfortunately means that admission is no longer possible.

What does this mean for current students planning on a top-up programme?

UCN is working to develop possibilities for students enrolled in English-taught academy degree programmes (who have acquired a certain level of Danish language skills) to apply for Danish-taught top-up programmes at UCN.

We are also looking into various agreements allowing enrolled students to apply for top-up programmes at our partner universities in e.g. Belgium and the Netherlands. 

The Top-up programme Software Development is still open for admission and has its last intake in February 2022.   

UCN expects to have further information about the specific possibilities for top-up programmes later in 2022.
